Kyron Duke of Great Britain finishes fifth in the F40 shot put final after throwing a personal best of 11.24m.

Great Britain's Paralympic athlete Kyron Duke has failed to clinch a medal for the host nation in the men's F40 shot put final.

The British hopeful, who competed in the event classified for competitors with dwarfism, secured a personal best of 11.24m.

Despite a strong performance from Duke, it was not enough to rival the top three positions, which was led by Wang Zhiming of China, who grabbed the gold with a world-record throw of 14.46m.

Algeria's Hocine Gherzouli clinched the silver medal, while Paschalis Stathelakos of Greece snatches the bronze.
