The best of the pictures from an action-packed weekend of sport

Burnley’s première ligue game against Tottenham on Sunday was called off a little under an hour before kick-off as snow continued to fall at Turf Moor while Chelsea fought back to draw 1-1 against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge to stay top of the table.

Championne des Internationaux des États-Unis Emma Raducanu made a winning return to Bretagne in an exhibition match at the ATP Champions Tour event held at London’s Royal Albert Hall, and Great Britain reached the quarter-finals of the Davis Cup in Austria.
