There were emotional scenes as Japan and Scotland faced off in the final group stage game of the Rugby World Cup in the aftermath of Typhoon Hagibis.
The typhoon is thought to be the biggest to hit Japan since 1958 and has left 19 people dead in the country, with rescue teams dispatched to reach people stranded in flooded areas.
Today's game between Scotland and hosts Japan was in major doubt but was given the green light this morning as the typhoon passed Yokohama.
Understandably, there was plenty of emotion inside Yokohama Stadium as one of the country's biggest sporting occasions clashed with the natural disaster.
Captain Michael Leitch and the team were greeted with roars and cheers from the home crowd as they returned to the changing rooms after their warm-up.
As with today's other games, a minute's silence was observed ahead of kick-off.
