Wales crashed out of Euro 2020 with a heavy defeat to Denmark as the knockout phase of the tournament began.

Gareth Bale went close before a Kasper Dolberg double and goals from Joakim Maehle and Martin Braithwaite ended Welsh hopes, with Italy also progressing and Czech Republic stunning Holland.

England won their opening ODI against India and Max Verstappen increased his world championship lead over Lewis Hamilton with victory in the Styrian Grand Prix.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look at some of the key images from across the weekend.
