From Manchester United being stunned by Watford to lose their third consecutive Premier League match to Nico Rosberg taking the World Championship lead from Mercedes teammate and rival Lewis Hamilton by clinching the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday.

Also, the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games were brought to a close inside a packed Maracana Stadium on Sunday evening, not before we witnessed some enthralling action.

Spain, led by Rafael Nadal, capped their return to the Davis Cup World Group by completing a 5-0 whitewash against India in New Delhi on Sunday.
