Sporting weekend in pictures: Lewis Hamilton, Rafael Nadal equal records

Rafael Nadal joined Roger Federer on 20 grand slam titles while Lewis Hamilton equalled Michael Schumacher's Formula One victory record of 91 wins.

England came from behind to beat Belgium and move top of their Nations League group as international football took centre stage in the sporting calendar.

Gareth Southgate's side showed guile rather than style at Wembley, but also enjoyed their fair share of luck, Marcus Rashford celebrated his MBE with the equaliser from the penalty spot before Mason Mount's deflected effort earned England a 2-1 victory.

Stephen Kenny's wait for his first win as Republic of Ireland manager continued after his 10-man coronavirus-hit side were held to a 0-0 draw by Wales in Dublin.

Rafael Nadal demolished Novak Djokovic in straight sets to win a 13th French Open title and take his place alongside Roger Federer at the summit of men's tennis with 20 grand slam crowns.

Lewis Hamilton made history after matching Michael Schumacher's Formula One victory record by winning the Eifel Grand Prix.

Exeter and Wasps booked their places in the Premiership final, with convincing victories over Bath and Bristol respectively.

Here, the PA news agency looks at the weekend's action in pictures.
