Team GB's women's hockey side snatch a bronze medal with a 3-1 win over New Zealand.

Great Britain have added another bronze medal to their tally courtesy of a 3-1 win over New Zealand in the women's hockey.

The British side dominated the first half but neither side could find a breakthrough due to some strong defending and vital saves from both goalkeepers.

It took 44 minutes of play for Great Britain to take the lead through Alex Danson from a penalty corner.

The Brits continued their dominance by snatching two late goals in quick succession, with Crista Cullen and Sarah Thomas getting on the score sheet.

New Zealand scored a consolation goal through Stacey Michelsen but there wasn't enough time for her side to launch a comeback.
