Rowing: Dark Blues continue their dominance

Oxford University beat Cambridge by 11 lengths in the biggest victory since 1973 to win the 160th BNY Mellon Boat Race, the Dark Blues' fifth triumph in seven years.

The toss once again proved decisive, with the race won for the fourth successive year by the crew taking the Surrey Station.

Cambridge protested against the result, after the two crews clashed near the Harrods Depositary, but umpire Richard Phelps threw out the complaint from cox Ian Middleton.
