The sporting weekend in pictures



Manchester City and Premier League title rivals Liverpool drew 2-2 in a thriller at the Etihad Stadium and Scottie Scheffler won the Masters in Augusta.

There was a fairy-tale winner in the Grand National as amateur Sam Waley-Cohen won on long-shot Noble Yeats, owned by his father, and England’s Women maintained their 100 per cent start in rugby’s Six Nations.
