Saturday’s sport pays tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

Tributes were paid to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as sport resumed on Saturday, following the death of the UK’s longest-serving monarch on Thursday. England’s final Test against South Africa was washed out on day one because of rain before day two was called off as a mark of respect to Queen Elizabeth II. On day three, a minute’s silence was observed before the national anthems, with God Save the King followed by sustained applause from the crowd at The Oval. After play was halted on Thursday, the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth resumed on Saturday. The Premiership season got under way in England on Saturday after Friday’s two fixtures were postponed.
