We compute the Euclidean correlators of the energy-momentum tensor in Yang-Mills theory at finite temperature at zero and finite spatial momenta with lattice simulations. We perform continuum extrapolations of these quantities using Nτ = 10;12;16 lattices. We use these correlators to estimate the shear viscosity of the gluon plasma in the deconfined phase.
