Great Britain's Paul Blake has won the bronze medal in the final of the T36 800m after leading at the bell.

Blake was leading the two Russians Evgenii Shvetcov and Artem Arefyev until 600m but was unable to catch them after they kicked.

Shvetcov took the gold in a Paralympic record time of 2:05.32, with Arefyev posting a 2:06.13.

Blake was slightly behind the two leaders with his 2:08.24, but more than four seconds ahead of the next athlete.
