Great Britain's Andrew Osagie qualifies for Thursday's 800m Olympic final by finishing second in the second semi-final.

Great Britain's Andrew Osagie has finished second in his 800m semi-final at the Olympics, automatically qualifying for the final.

The 24-year-old held his position in fifth until the home straight, when he moved ahead of the men in front of him to finish behind Kenya's David Rudisha.

Osagie looked shocked as he crossed the line in second, meaning that he wouldn't exit the competition at the same stage that he did at last year's World Championships in Daegu.

The final takes place on Thursday at around 8pm.
