Good afternoon, David Cooper here giving you a bitesize look at what’s going on today in the world of sport.

TOP STORY 

Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard both scored braces as Belgium made light work of Tunisia, securing a 5-2 win in their World Cup Group G clash on Saturday.

Hazard won and converted a penalty to open the scoring in the sixth minute before Lukaku doubled their advantage 10 minutes later.

Tunisia pulled one back through Dylan Bronn within the next two minutes but their two-goal cushion was restored on the stroke of half-time when the Manchester United striker scored his second.

Hazard then struck again six minutes into the second period while substitute Michy Batshuayi added a fifth at the death for the Red Devils.
