The sports weekend in pictures

Britain finished the Beijing Winter Olympics with two medals after Eve Muirhead’s women’s curling team won gold on the final day of competition as Bruce Mouat’s men took the money the day before.

Muirhead and teammates Vicky Wright, Jennifer Dodds, Hailey Duff and substitute Mili Smith earned an emphatic 10-3 victory over Japan.

In the Premier League, Harry Kane inspired Tottenham to a 3-2 victory at Manchester City to reinvigorate the title race with Liverpool now just six points behind the champions with a game less, while Manchester United won 4 -2 against Leeds on a rain-soaked Elland Road.

Elsewhere, Kell Brook stopped Amir Khan in the sixth round to win their long-awaited fight at Manchester Arena.
