Rio 2016 – day six round-up…
Great Britain won a fourth gold medal at the Rio Olympics as the men’s cycling sprint team successfully defended their title on the day Katherine Grainger became the country’s most decorated female Olympian.
Philip Hindes, Jason Kenny and Callum Skinner defeated New Zealand in a thrilling clash at the Velodrome to move GB to eighth in the medal table.
Earlier, Grainger and Victoria Thornley took double sculls silver as GB picked up where they left off after their six-medal haul on Wednesday.
GB also secured silver in the inaugural men’s rugby sevens competition after losing 43-7 to a brilliant Fiji side, who earned their first ever Olympic medal of any colour.
Day six produced a third silver for GB, in the men’s canoe double C2, as Britain moved on to 16 medals – one ahead of the number won at London 2012 after as many days of competition.
