Golden jump-off for Team GB riders
Nick Skelton, riding Big Star, formed the gold medal-winning team alongside Ben Maher, Scott Brash and Peter Charles
The British showjumping team has leapt to a glorious gold in a nail-biting jump-off.
The victory for Nick Skelton, Ben Maher, Scott Brash and Peter Charles was Britain's first team gold in the event for 60 years.
Team GB cyclist Jason Kenny also won gold in the men's sprint.
And earlier, Britain's first medal of the day was secured by gymnast Beth Tweddle, who won her first Olympic medal, a bronze in the final of the uneven bars.
Team GB is rapidly closing in on its best-ever post-war Olympic Games. It remains third in the medal table with 39 - 17 gold, 11 silver and 11 bronze.
By the end of the hugely-successful Beijing Games, Britain had won 47 medals, 19 of which were gold.
Veteran rider Skelton said winning the gold in front of a packed crowd in Greenwich was "a dream come true".
"Its great for the country and great for our sport," he said.
Tweddle, 27, from Liverpool, was delighted with bronze despite not claiming the title.
She said: "It means everything. I just wanted to win a medal, it didn't matter what colour. It's the best feeling in the world."
