Check out the highlights below.

Most of us would dream of taking to the field against Real Madrid at 15-years-old but Romero did it with swagger last night.
It comes as no surprise that he has been linked with some of the biggest clubs in the world, such as Barcelona and Manchester United.
He couldn't help his side to victory however as Zinedine Zidane's side emerged 2-0 winners.
Vinicius Junior opened the scoring in the first half before Sergio Ramos' free-kick sealed all three points.
The result puts Real Madrid top of La Liga on goal difference ahead of bitter rivals Barcelona.
Following the game, Ramos fired back at Barca defender Gerard Pique who had harsh words for decisions going Madrid's way.
There's a lot of noise in the media because we're leaders again," he said.
"They didn't talk so much before. They talk about VAR, but I don't think anyone has an advantage over the season."

The Real Madrid captain added: "We don't pay attention to this noise. I don't think they [the referees] take any predetermined decisions. It seems like we should be thanking the refs for being leaders! People shouldn't be imagining things.
"We've been working hard and since the lockdown, we've been united, and we deserve to be where we are."
