Great Britain's Graeme Ballard has won the silver medal in the T36 100m final after leading for much of the race.

Ballard got off to a very quick start but was just overhauled in the final 20m by Evgenii Schvetkov, whose 12.08 was a new Paralympic record.

Then Ballard led the rest of the pack, claiming silver with his 12.24, just 0.02s ahead of the bronze medal winner Roman Pavlyk of Ukraine.
