The sporting weekend in pictures

Tears flowed at the O2 in London as Roger Federer played his last professional tennis match in a doubles loss in the Laver Cup alongside long-time rival Rafael Nadal.

It was a happier event elsewhere this weekend, as St Helens secured an historic fourth consecutive Grand Final triumph after a 24-12 win over Leeds to cement their status as the most successful team in the Super League era .

On the international football front, things have been mixed for the home countries, with both men’s and women’s cricket teams suffering narrow defeats.
