Callum Sheedy kicked an 85th-minute drop goal to deny Lyon an incredible comeback victory in the Investec Champions Cup.

Bristol appeared to cruise to a bonus-point victory after a fifth try by Gabriel Oghre to take a 33-10 lead.

But two tries from Thaakir Abrahams alongside a Semi Radradra score set up a grandstand finish.

Alfred Parisien's solo try looked to have won the game with three minutes to go before Sheedy struck.

More to follow.
