Tokyo once again took centre stage over the weekend as Paralympic athletes battled it out for glory on the biggest stage.

There were highs and lows in the Premier League too, while in cricket, England squared their Test series with India in commanding fashion at Headingley.

The Belgian Grand Prix proved something of a wash-out, allowing Max Verstappen to reduce world champion Lewis Hamilton’s advantage over him to just three points.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look at some of the weekend’s events in pictures.
