Kayak gold for GB
Ed McKeever earned Team GB a 26th gold medal of the Olympic Games with a superb performance in the men's 200m Kayak event.
It was a dominant display from McKeever in the final and, though there were spirited efforts from Spain's Saul Craviotto Rivero, who took silver, and Canada's Mark de Jonge, who took bronze, it was clear from an early stage in the competition that the pair would be battling for second spot.
The 28-year-old Brit recorded a time of 36.246 seconds to secure Team GB's second ever Canoe Sprint gold medal, four years after Tim Brabants secured an historic first Olympic title in Beijing.
McKeever's hopes of winning a medal were given a significant boost when favourite Piotr Siemionowski crashed out at the qualifying stage, with gold in London completing a notable hat-trick for the Brit, following World and European titles in 2010.
"I'm so happy, but I am more relieved than anything else. It sounds stupid but it's not elation, more relief, and I'm so happy to do it front of a home crowd," said McKeever, who competes for the Bradford on Avon Canoe Club.
"I was like a kid at Christmas this morning, waiting to open his presents. I get to open those presents soon."
