Farewell five-a-siders

Well, the 57 hours plus Fergie Time™ of fussball have come to an end. It's been a pleasure and a joy and a mammoth ordeal. But utterly worth it for the huge sums you have helped raise for Sport Relief 2016. Thank you.

And thanks for all your comments - we're glad you enjoyed it as much as we did. Who knew that watching ordinary men, women and children hoof a ball around for three days could be such compelling viewing...

If you haven't donated yet, you can still top up the £370,592 raised thus far. Here's how to do it.

Live now: 606

Robbie is hotfooting it back to the 606 studio. You can listen live at the top of this page. As the losing captain, you won't have to hear him gloat either. You may have to listen to disgruntled Newcastle and Everton fans though.

£370,592 raised

Kevin Cahill, CEO of Comic Relief - who scored a few lovely goals earlier today - has revealed the total raised over the last three days.

Given the terrible weather and the incredible spirit players encountered throughout the challenge, the Premier League is now turning every pound donated by the public into a crisp fiver. 

They have also donated thirty thousand pounds on behalf of the winners Team Shearer and twenty thousand pounds on behalf of Team Savage. 

The total so far stands at a magnificent £370,592 and rising. You can still donate so if you haven't, it's not too late to make a difference.

The presentation ceremony

Jason Mohammad is the master of ceremonies, Gary Lineker is down there too, and he hands Rachel Riley her trophy for completing her 12 hour marathon. He's sounding a bit croaky, we hope he recovers in time for MOTD later this evening.

"Shearer, Shearer, Shearer" chants the 'capacity' crowd as Alan is officially crowned the winner of the Sport Relief Battle of the Five-A-Sides.

My back, my thighs, my knees - they're all in bits but it was all worth it

Blimey O'Riley, it's all over

Shearer 5s 547-529 Savage 5s

The full time whistle (and it really is the final whistle this time) hands victory to Team Shearer by 18 goals. It also means that Rachel Riley finishes her monster shift. She joins Alan, Robbie, McFly's Danny Jones and Union J's Josh Cuthbert in the elite group to play 12 hours straight over the three days. Congratulations to all of them. Amazing effort.

Shearer scores

Shearer 5s 547-528 Savage 5s

Inevitable. The gimlet eye. The deadly finish. The hand in the air.

We have no idea when this will end. We are deep deep deep into Fergie time. My chewing gum is completely tasteless.

And the band played on

We have an encore. Savage, Shearer, Riley et al are carrying on.

Another 57 hours anyone?

They think it's all over!

The final whistle sounds. Team Shearer win... or do they... we're being told that there WILL be some Fergie time.

The final countdown

Oh come on, how could we resist? With 30 seconds of normal time left (not sure if the term 'normal' can be applied to a 57-hour football match?) here's something to keep Rachel Riley motivated right to the very end of her 12-hour stint.

Last knockings and the heavyweights are back on. Ralf Little hobbles off injured. Will there be any time added on?

Sport Relief 'Hell on High Seas'

Starts this coming Monday

No sooner does one challenge end then another begins. 

Alex Jones, Hal Cruttenden, Ore Oduba, Angellica Bell, Doon Mackichan and Suzi Perry are attempting to sail from Belfast, 1,000 miles around a section of the UK. Casting off on Monday 7 March, and with five days to complete the journey, the days will be long, the work will be hard and the water will be freezing. Will they be able to cope? 

You'll be able to follow their progress live at BBC Sport Relief from midday this Monday.

And there's running man Eddie Izzard who's still truckin' in South Africa as he attempts 27 marathons in 27 days.

#beardwatch update

The Bearded Wonder has been in touch! He's glued to the screen, as are we. Sadly we'll have to wait to see him on the pitch once more.

Score update

Shearer 5s 539 Savage 5s 518

The latest merry bands strutting their stuff in the piazza are a team from Liverpool (Shearer/Riley) - featuring legendary 70s and 80s defender Alan Kennedy - and a team from Grimsby (Savage). It's 1-1 right now which means the gap is still 21 goals with just over half an hour left. As I type, an old fashioned centre-forward in the Micky Quinn mould has just shown great feet for a big lad to put the Scousers 2-1 ahead. Lead back out to 22.

Building a score

Robbie's representatives have been chipping away at the lead, winning that last match 8-2, bringing the overall difference between the teams to 21.

Credit must also be given to Team Shearer whose dogged determination has impressed many of those watching in the virtual crowd.

Good question

We imagine the answer is zero minutes but Savage might well be lobbying for some extra time if the scores are tight.

Yes he will Mark, for the last 5 minutes or so.

27 goals down - can they do it?

Team Savage are on the march - an 11-1 rout has seen them end the last match with a mere (!) 27 goals to score to make them equal on aggregate. 


Hats off to Rachel Riley

"Shearer's gonna have it!"

Robbie should be concentrating on today's Premier League games ahead of his appearance on 606, but he can't take his eyes off the action outside in the MediaCity piazza where the gap to Team Shearer is now only 28 goals. Dramarama.

Robbie Savage believes his five-a-side team can overhaul Team Shearer at the last
