England have won the third Ashes Test to complete one of the most famous run chases in the history of cricket.

Needing an improbable 359 for victory, England reached their target with just one wicket remaining as all-rounder Ben Stokes made a stunning unbeaten century.

The win levels the five match series 1-1 with two matches remaining.

The fourth Test gets underway at Old Trafford on September 4.
