England players, headed by Chris Tremlett, celebrate the wicket of Mitchell Johnson on day four of the fifth and final Ashes Test against Australia in Sydney.

England closed the day requiring three wickets to seal a 3-1 series win, which would be their first series win in Australia since the 1986/7 Ashes campaign.

It would also see them retain the Ashes, having won them back with a 2-1 win on home soil in 2009.
