British Olympic champion - Andrew Simpson - has died in a sailing accident. He was killed when the catamaran he was sailing in capsized during training for the America's Cup in the San Francisco Bay.
It may have been four years in the making, but the America's Cup looks destined to go to the team that missed out back in 2013. New Zealand can clinch the oldest trophy in sports when the contest resumes on Monday.
New Zealand have reclaimed the America's Cup by almost white-washing the US holders 7-1 in a first-to-seven final. New Zealand's win means Peter Burling has become the youngest ever helmsman to secure the prize.
Emirates Team New Zealand remain in control at the 35th America's Cup, but Oracle Team USA have hope after a first win. The Kiwis have a commanding 4-1 lead going into the next two races on Sunday.
