Also, Paddy Power has announced they are preemptively paying off bets for Ben Stokes as the Sports Personality of the year 

At least it wont be Lewis Hamilton again.

England's remarkable win in numbers:

This is England's highest fourth-innings total to win a Test; the previous highest was 332-7 against Australia at Melbourne in 1928-29.

It is the 10th highest successful chase in Test history.

This is the third time a team has been bowled out for under 70 in their first innings and gone on to win the Test - the other two instances also occurred in the Ashes, but in 1882 (Australia 63 all out) and 1887 (England 45 all out).

Ben Stokes and Jack Leach's stand of 76 is the third-highest 10th wicket partnership in the fourth innings to win a first-class match.

This is only England's fourth Test victory by one wicket and first since against South Africa at Cape Town in 1923.

Headingley is the first venue to see four fourth-innings totals over 300 to win a Test.

Aussies need two wickets to win the Ashes. England trying to survive and draw the fourth test. If England do, it's all down to the fifth and final test.

It's over, England are all out. Australia retain the Ashes.
