Robert Welbourn has admitted that he could not have expected to achieve better than bronze.

Great Britain's S10 400m bronze medal winner Robert Welbourn has admitted that he could not expected to achieve better.

Welbourn was left behind after being level at the half-way point and he was delighted with achieving a medal at his home Paralympics.

"I'm over the moon with that," he said. "I said this morning it would be a tough race and it really was.

"To come away from a home Games with a medal, I can't ask for any more.

"It was difficult to see what was happening. I could hear the crowd cheering as they have all week and it spurred me on."

ParalympicsGB added two more golds to their tally on day seven.
