As the 2010s come to a close, the PA news agency takes a statistical look back at the decade.

2010-2019: By the numbers

65 - medals for Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics: 29 gold, 17 silver and 19 bronze. Another 120 followed at the Paralympics as the hosts placed third in both medal tables.

3 - gold medals inside an hour on 'Super Saturday' as Jessica Ennis-Hill, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farah won the heptathlon, long jump and 10,000 metres respectively.

4 - clubs to have won the Premier League this decade: Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Leicester.

100 - City's 2017-18 Premier League win saw them become the first club to rack up a century of points in the top flight.

3 - successive major titles for Spain's football team as they won the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 to add to their 2008 success.

600 - Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo each passed 600 career goals as they won nine of the decade's 10 Ballons d'Or, a run interrupted only by Luka Modric in 2018.

£200.6million - world-record fee paid by Paris St Germain to sign Neymar from Barcelona in 2017.

£1billion - figure broken for the last four summers by Premier League clubs' combined transfer window spending, peaking at £1.43bn in 2017.

53 - England goals for Wayne Rooney, a national record.

1,000 - England's men's cricket team played their 1,000th Test match, while their football counterparts also reached four figures for international games.

77 - Andy Murray ended a 77-year wait for a British winner of the men's singles at Wimbledon in 2013, the second of his three grand slam titles.

6 - Tour de France titles for British riders - four for Chris Froome and one apiece for Sir Bradley Wiggins and Geraint Thomas. No British rider had ever previously won the event.

7 - yellow jerseys forfeited by Lance Armstrong after the American was convicted in 2012 of historical doping offences.

10-4 - Europe's deficit on the Saturday before fighting back in their 'Miracle of Medinah' 2012 Ryder Cup win.

5 - Francesco Molinari became the first European player to win all five of his matches in a Ryder Cup in 2018's contest in France - four in partnership with Tommy Fleetwood, and then his singles rubber.

15 - Tiger Woods won his 15th major title, over a decade after his 14th, when he won the 2019 Masters.

12,472 - Sir Alastair Cook retired with a record number of Test runs for England, over 3,500 clear of second-placed Graham Gooch.

3 - successive Champions League titles won by Real Madrid from 2015-16 to 2017-18, becoming the first team in the Champions League era to defend the title as they won four altogether in the decade.

481 - England made a record one-day international total of 481 for six against Australia in 2018, breaking their own mark of 444 for three set almost two years earlier against Pakistan.

6 - Lewis Hamilton took his tally of Formula One world titles to within one of Michael Schumacher's record of seven, winning five this decade to add to 2008's maiden win.

2 - Lizzy Yarnold became Britain's most successful winter Olympian by winning gold at back-to-back Games in 2014 and 2018, making it three skeleton golds in a row for GB after Amy Williams' win in 2010.

50 - Floyd Mayweather retired unbeaten in a half-century of fights, breaking Rocky Marciano's long-standing record.

148 - Richie McCaw retired in 2015 with a world-record number of international rugby union caps, having led New Zealand to two World Cup titles in the decade.
