Britain’s Cameron Norrie was knocked out in the second round of the Italian Open following a 6-2 6-2 defeat to 13th seed Borna Coric.
Norrie, 23, was the only British male to make it through to the second round after beating Australia’s John Millman.
Coric converted two of his four break points to win the opening set and broke again twice in the second to win in less than an hour in Rome.
The Croat will face Swiss Roger Federer or Portugal’s Joao Sousa next.
British number one Johanna Konta takes on American seventh seed Sloane Stephens in the women’s second round on Wednesday.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says the club must respect Eden Hazard’s decision about his future but is hopeful the forward will choose to stay at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard has scored 16 goals for the Blues this season and has been strongly linked with a summer move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The 28-year-old says he has made a decision over his future and has informed the club.
“I hope he will stay,” said Sarri.
“I think Eden has played here in Chelsea for seven seasons, trying in every match to do his best and now it’s time to respect his decision.”
Hazard has just a year left on his contract having joined from Lille for £32m in 2012.
Chelsea fans held up a banner before Sunday’s Premier League finale against Leicester, pleading with the Belgian to stay.
After a substitute appearance in Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Leicester the Belgium international revealed he has made the club aware of his decision.
“Yes. A couple of weeks ago. Yes I have made my decision but it is not just about me,” said Hazard. “I have made my decision, that’s it.”
When asked if his future will become clear after the Europa League final against Arsenal on 29 May he added: “I think so. We have a final to play and then I will see.”
Hazard also admitted he wanted his future resolved earlier to avoid it being the season-long saga it has become.
“Yes, I wanted that but that’s not happened. I’m still waiting like you are waiting and like the fans are waiting,” he said.
“When you are on the pitch, you try to be focused on the pitch with the ball. That’s it. When I am on the pitch I just try to do the best.
“I am not thinking about this and this, my situation or the club’s situation. I just try to win games.”
Sunday’s point means the Blues finish the domestic campaign in third place after Tottenham drew 2-2 with Everton.
Next up is the Europa League final in Baku, Azerbaijan.
“The season is good,” added Sarri.
“We were in trouble two or three months ago but third place is a very good result.
“Now we have to go to Baku for the Europa League final and we have the chance for our season to be wonderful.”
A man arrested over the abduction and rape of three women in and around London is being investigated for other attacks involving nine further victims.
Joseph McCann, 34, was arrested in Congleton, Cheshire, after two girls, aged 14, were abducted in the town.
He is being investigated over attacks in Cheshire, Manchester and Lancashire, on victims aged between 11 and 71.
Det Ch Insp Katherine Goodwin, of the Metropolitan Police, said the attacks were “grotesque and horrifying”.
The officer urged other victims to come forward and said police wanted to hear from anyone who had been approached by Mr McCann or in contact with him between February and May.
Mr McCann was found in a tree in Smithy Lane on Sunday evening and arrested after a stand-off with police negotiators.
He had been spotted in the town after two girls were forced into a car that afternoon.
Met detectives are now investigating him in connection with a number of other attacks earlier that day.
These include the false imprisonment of a woman in Haslingden, Lancashire, in which a teenage girl and a boy, 11, were raped and the abduction and rape of a 71-year-old in Bury, Manchester.
The suspect is also being investigated over the abduction of two 13-year-old boys and the abduction and sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl in Heywood, Manchester, at about 15:30 BST on Sunday.
Det Ch Insp Goodwin said the attacks were believed to have taken place between 21 April and 5 May.
“Detectives from the Met continue to lead on this investigation and are working very closely with policing counterparts where he is suspected to have carried out further offences,” she said.
Mr McCann was also wanted for questioning over the abduction and rape of a 21-year-old woman at knifepoint in Watford, Hertfordshire, in the early hours of 21 April.
The Met Police launched an appeal to find Mr McCann after two women in their 20s were snatched off streets in London and raped in a car in London on 25 April.
AFC Wimbledon guaranteed another season of League One football after a goalless draw at bottom side Bradford City.
Bradford’s Kelvin Mellor and Anthony O’Connor had the best chances of a quiet first half as Dons keeper Aaron Ramsdale made some smart saves.
Wimbledon came to life after the break as Joe Pigott had an effort cleared off the line and Mitch Pinnock shot wide from the edge of the box.
The Dons’ run of just one loss in their final 12 games ensured a fourth successive season in the third tier as they avoided relegation by virtue of goal difference from Plymouth Argyle.
It is a remarkable escape for the club who were 10 points from safety fewer than three months ago – but just two defeats in that time saw them climb the table and move out of the bottom four last week after a 2-1 win over Wycombe.
Meanwhile, Bradford’s disastrous season came to an end having gone through three managers and won just 11 of their 46 matches to conclude the campaign nine points from safety.
A boy who flicked a piece of cheese at a teenager with a dairy allergy who later died did not mean to harm him, an inquest has heard.
Karanbir Cheema, 13, who also had other allergies and asthma, suffered from a severe reaction at his school in west London on 28 June 2017.
He was taken to hospital in a life-threatening condition and died two weeks later.
An inquest into Karanbir’s death heard a piece of cheese landed on his neck.
A boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told Poplar Coroner’s Court he did not know why he threw the cheese, describing it as “immature behaviour.”
The court heard he was given it by a friend during break time at William Perkin Church of England High School in Ealing.
He then threw the piece of cheese at Karanbir – but said he was not specifically his target.
“After that he just said ‘I am allergic to cheese’,” the boy said.
“I apologised and went to class after.”
The boy admitted he did not know how serious allergies could be and thought they could simply cause a rash or fever.
“I didn’t mean to hurt him and obviously I feel bad now”, the boy said.
In a statement, Karanbir’s mother Rina said her son was “extremely diligent” at managing his allergies.
Informed that cheese had been put down his neck, she said a consultant at the hospital questioned this because contact through the skin would not cause such a bad reaction.
Giving evidence, Rajvnder Saini who worked at the school, said an Epipen kept in the school for Karanbir had expired in July 2016.
An email was sent to the boy’s mother in February 2017 to inform her, the court heard.
The inquest continues.
Police cars following three teenagers on a moped were told repeatedly to pull back before it crashed and one of the teenagers died, an inquest heard.
Tyereece Johnson, 16, died on 17 July 2017 after being thrown from the moped, which was believed to have been involved in an attempted robbery.
Inner West London Coroner’s Court also heard a pursuit across south London had not been authorised.
A report by the police watchdog will be released at the inquest’s close.
The trio were being tracked by a police helicopter feeding information on their location to cars on the ground in the early hours of 16 July, the inquest heard.
The court was told that on at least two occasions, a female officer could be heard saying over the radio: “Can you try not to follow the vehicle too closely please?”
PC Lee Hunt, a tactical pursuit adviser on the night of the crash, told the court he did not authorise a pursuit, because the trio were not wearing helmets and due to the risk to other road users and pedestrians.
He advised that police cars attempted to position themselves ahead of the moped and lay down a stinger device to bring it to a halt.
He also told the inquest he was unaware there were two police cars following the moped.
Footage presented to the inquest showed the moped and its hooded riders weaving a convoluted route from Clapham Common to Wimbledon in south London, before crashing into the back of the police car and being flung in different directions.
The inquest heard that Tyereece died of his injuries in hospital the following day.
Tyereece’s mother Samantha Cohen described the teenager as a “brilliant” footballer and Chelsea fan, who was scouted by the Royal Ballet, according to a statement read by coroner Dr Shirley Radcliffe.
It added Ms Cohen and her son moved to Croydon from north London after she became concerned he had “fallen into the wrong crowd”.
The inquest is scheduled to last for eight days.
Arsenal will clinch their first Women’s Super League title since 2012 if they beat Brighton on Sunday.
The Gunners – English women’s football’s most decorated club despite that wait – are four points above Manchester City with two games to go.
“We didn’t have the consistency in recent years. This year we’ve had the full package,” defender Leah Williamson told BBC Sport.
A crowd of around 3,000 are set to watch the match at the Amex Stadium.
Williamson said the Gunners “desperately” want to add to their 14 English league crowns, which includes two WSL titles and 12 Women’s Premier League trophies.
“It would be great if we could win it because this football club dominated for so many years,” the 22-year-old said.
“We haven’t been close enough for the past few years. Everybody is relishing the opportunity.
“It’s definitely not haunting us. It’s very exciting and we’ll see what we can do.”
Arsenal’s long wait for silverware
Williamson, who has been with Arsenal since the age of nine, recalls watching on in awe as an academy player as the London club won nine consecutive league titles between 2004 and 2012.
“I watched all those [idols], Rachel Yankey, Faye White, Alex Scott, Kelly Smith, Jayne Ludlow – I could go on and on – lift the trophy so easily. That’s what it looked like for so many years,” said Williamson.
“But now I realise it was true dominance.
“It’s sad that it’s taken this long for us to even be in the position where we might take home that trophy, but hopefully we can do it for Arsenal.”
The Gunners narrowly lost February’s Women’s League Cup final against Man City on penalties, but Williamson says they never felt sorry for themselves.
Rather, that defeat has helped motivate the squad.
“It’s not a sad story. That wasn’t good enough for what we want to achieve,” the England international continued.
“We’re a football club that needs to be winning trophies to meet our standards, so to miss out on that piece of silverware and be so close, it’s not good enough.
“We need that trophy in our cabinet if we want to have a successful season. Once that [the League Cup] was over and that wasn’t coming home, we needed to make sure the league was our priority to bring home silverware this year.”
A bumper crowd at Brighton
Should Arsenal slip up against Brighton, second-placed Manchester City – who face Arsenal on the final day of the season – could capitalise. Nick Cushing’s City side face relegated Yeovil later in the day.
Sunday’s fixture is also a significant one for the Seagulls, playing at the home of their men’s side.
BBC Sport understands the hosts could see a new club-record crowd for a women’s game on Sunday.
Brighton, who were promoted to the WSL last summer, have already secured their safety in the division, but manager Hope Powell still wants to see improvements.
“It would be great if we could try and upset them [Arsenal] or at least make it as difficult as possible,” former England boss Powell told BBC Sussex.
“It’s more about performances now. We’re looking for players to perform at this level.
“Arsenal will be a really big test of us, just to see where we are. We want to strive to be the best and Arsenal are the best.
“So we need to understand how much further away we are from them.”
A climate protest that has disrupted parts of London for nine days is to end on Thursday, organisers say.
Police cleared Extinction Rebellion’s final road block in Marble Arch earlier and arrested 22 people, bringing the total to 1,088 since protests began.
Specialist equipment has been deployed in Parliament Square to remove protesters camping in trees.
Makeshift camps at Oxford Circus and Waterloo Bridge were removed earlier in the week.
One protester told the BBC “This is our last stand”.
Organisers said a closing ceremony would be held at 18:00 BST on Thursday at Speaker’s Corner, Hyde Park.
“We will leave the physical locations but a space for truth-telling has been opened up in the world,” they said in a statement.
“We know we have disrupted your lives. We do not do this lightly. We only do this because this is an emergency.”
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said he welcomed the decision to cease the protests, which had been a “huge challenge for our over-stretched and under-resourced Metropolitan Police”.
So far 69 people have been charged in connection with the protest, the Met Police said.
Police have extended restrictions at the Marble Arch site, preventing protesters congregating on the road, until Saturday afternoon.
A senior Scotland Yard officer has warned that officers will require new powers to deal with demonstrations on a similar scale in the future.
Giving evidence to the parliamentary Human Rights Committee, Commander Adrian Usher, head of the Metropolitan Police’s protection command, said it should not be enough for a protest to be “peaceful” to be considered lawful.
“We will conduct a sober review of our tactics against recent protests, but I think it is likely to say the legislation associated with policing protest is quite dated and that policing and protest has moved on and that legislation should follow suit,” he said.
Earlier, Extinction Rebellion Youth handed a letter addressed to MPs, to Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott.
In response, Ms Abbott said MPs needed to come together to host a “broad conversation” on bringing the country’s greenhouse gas emissions down.
Campaigners have issued three core demands to the government: to “tell the truth about climate change”; to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2025; and to create a citizens’ assembly to oversee progress.
Elliott Cuciurean, 20, believed to be the first climate activist successfully prosecuted over the fresh wave of protests, was spared a fine at a court hearing on Tuesday.
More actions are expected in the future.
A teenage climate change activist has told Extinction Rebellion protesters in London they are “making a difference”.
Greta Thunberg, 16, was greeted with chants of “we love you” as she took to the stage in front of thousands of people at the rally in Marble Arch.
A protest organiser said they planned “a week of activities” including a bid to prevent MPs entering Parliament.
More than 950 people have been arrested during the climate change protests and 40 people have been charged.
Ms Thunberg, a Swedish teenager who is credited with inspiring an international movement to fight climate change, told the crowd “humanity is standing at a crossroads” and that protesters “will never stop fighting for this planet”.
Addressing the crowd at about 19:30 BST, she said: “For way too long the politicians and people in power have got away with not doing anything at all to fight the climate crisis and ecological crisis.
“But we will make sure they will not get away with it any longer.”
As of 19:00 on Sunday, a total of 963 people had been arrested during the climate change protests.
The Met Police said 40 people, aged 19 to 77, have been charged for “various offences including breach of Section 14 Notice of the Public Order Act 1986, obstructing a highway and obstructing police”.
Extinction Rebellion said it hoped to negotiate with the Mayor of London and the Met over continuing its demonstrations at Old Palace Yard in Westminster and leaving other sites.
Organisers said there would be a “people’s assembly” at Marble Arch on Monday afternoon to decide what will happen in the coming week.
At the scene
By Dan Coles, BBC News
For much of the day there had been several hundred people at Extinction Rebellion’s Marble Arch site.
But the chance to hear from Greta Thunberg – something of a celebrity in the climate protest world – saw the numbers swell into the thousands. The crowd was bolstered by an influx from the Parliament Square location and their banners filled the air.
Greta Thunberg’s two-day journey to London by train was eagerly followed on social media and she got a huge cheer as she finally took to the stage.
Her speech was short and sweet, but the message was exactly what the crowd wanted to hear: “Keep going. You are making a difference.”
Earlier, Extinction Rebellion member Farhana Yamin said the group had offered to “pause” protests and begin “a new phase of rebellion” to achieve “political aims”.
She said the move would show the group was an “organised and a long-term political force to be reckoned with”.
However, another Extinction Rebellion organiser Larch Maxey told the BBC there “certainly won’t be a pause in our activities”.
He said: “On Tuesday we’ve got a series of strategic points around the city which we will be targeting to cause maximum economic disruption while simultaneously focusing on Parliament and inviting MPs to pause.”
Asked if MPs would be able to get into Parliament, he added: “Not if we are successful, we’re going to prevent them getting in so they have time to separate themselves from the politicking and concentrate on what’s at stake here.”
Police have been trying to confine the protests to Marble Arch but demonstrators have ignored the threat of arrest and continued to block roads across the capital.
Areas around Oxford Circus and Parliament Square have reopened to traffic after officers cleared protesters.
On Sunday afternoon, police removed the skate ramp, cooking tents and other infrastructure from the activists’ camp on Waterloo Bridge.
Some protesters began removing their collection of trees and plants, and officers removed the last activist from the bridge at about 22:00.
Met Commissioner Cressida Dick said that during her 36-year career she had never known a single police operation to result in so many arrests.
She said she was grateful for the help from hundreds of police officers drafted in from several forces, including the neighbouring City of London Police.
Officers from Kent, Sussex, Essex, Hampshire and Greater Manchester have also been sent.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said “more than 9,000 officers” had been responding to the demonstrations and he was “extremely concerned” about their impact on tackling issues such as violent crime.
What is Extinction Rebellion?
Since the group was set up last year, members have shut bridges, poured buckets of fake blood outside Downing Street, blockaded the BBC and stripped semi-naked in Parliament.
It has three core demands: for the government to “tell the truth about climate change”; to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2025; and to create a citizens’ assembly to oversee progress.
Controversially, the group is trying to get as many people arrested as possible.
But critics say they cause unnecessary disruption and waste police time when forces are already overstretched.
