Result: Team GB into Rio Rugby 7s semi-final

Team GB reach the semi-final of the women's rugby 7s tournament, brushing aside Fiji 26-7 in Rio de Janeiro.

Team GB's women's rugby sevens side have defeated Fiji 26-7 to advance to the semi-finals of the competition in Rio de Janeiro.

Abbie Brown was the first to illuminate the scoreboard, racing over within seconds of the first whistle after latching on to a loose ball.

Fiji restored parity soon after through Litia Naiqato, but from thereon it was all GB, with Alice Richardson and Joanne Watmore taking advantage of Fijian indecision to put the score at 19-7 by the break.

It was then plain sailing in the second half, with Brown finding her second try of the game to wrap up a comfortable victory.

GB will now face New Zealand in Monday's semi-final.
