A peak of 10.3m viewers watched live BBC coverage of the Grand National on Saturday, the highest total since 1998.

The race was won by Amberleigh House, who overhauled co-favourite Clan Royal on the run-in at Aintree.

The FA Cup semi-final between Arsenal and Manchester United earlier the same day attracted a peak of 7.3m viewers.

"We're pleased the BBC was able to offer viewers another super Saturday of sport," said BBC Director of Sport Peter Salmon.
