Let us see couple of Narrations from Saheeh Bukhari

First one is,

حدثنا أبو نعيم قال حدثنا شيبان عن يحيى قال سمعت أبا سلمة يقول أخبرنا جابر بن عبد الله أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم جاءه عمر بن الخطاب يوم الخندق فقال يا رسول الله والله ما كدت أن أصلي حتى كادت الشمس تغرب وذلك بعد ما أفطر الصائم فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم والله ما صليتها فنزل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم إلى بطحان وأنا معه فتوضأ ثم صلى يعني العصر بعد ما غربت الشمس ثم صلى بعدها المغرب

Volume 1, Book 11, Number 614 :
Narrated by Jabir bin ‘Abdullah

    On the day of Al-Khandaq (the trench), ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab went to the Prophet and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! By Allah, I could not pray (the ‘Asr) till the sun had set.” ‘Umar told this to the Prophet at the time when a fasting person had done Iftar (taken his meals). The Prophet then went to Buthan and I was with him. He performed ablution and offered the ‘Asr prayer after the sun had set and then the Maghrib prayer.

Another Narration states

حَدَّثَنَا مُعَاذُ بْنُ فَضَالَةَ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامٌ، عَنْ يَحْيَى، عَنْ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، أَنَّ عُمَرَ بْنَ الْخَطَّابِ، جَاءَ يَوْمَ الْخَنْدَقِ بَعْدَ مَا غَرَبَتِ الشَّمْسُ، فَجَعَلَ يَسُبُّ كُفَّارَ قُرَيْشٍ قَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مَا كِدْتُ أُصَلِّي الْعَصْرَ حَتَّى كَادَتِ الشَّمْسُ تَغْرُبُ‏.‏ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ وَاللَّهِ مَا صَلَّيْتُهَا ‏”‏‏.‏ فَقُمْنَا إِلَى بُطْحَانَ، فَتَوَضَّأَ لِلصَّلاَةِ، وَتَوَضَّأْنَا لَهَا فَصَلَّى الْعَصْرَ بَعْدَ مَا غَرَبَتِ الشَّمْسُ، ثُمَّ صَلَّى بَعْدَهَا الْمَغْرِبَ‏.

Online Translation:-

Volume 1, Book 10, Number 570 :
Narrated by Jabir bin ‘Abdullah

    On the day of Al-Khandaq (the battle of trench.) ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab came cursing the disbelievers of Quraish after the sun had set and said, “O Allah’s Apostle I could not offer the ‘Asr prayer till the sun had set.” The Prophet said, “By Allah! I, too, have not prayed.” So we turned towards Buthan, and the Prophet performed ablution and we too performed ablution and offered the ‘Asr prayer after the sun had set, and then he offered the Maghrib prayer.
