Result: Brazil ease into volleyball final

Brazil comfortably defeat Italy in the second volleyball semi-final to face Russia in the final.

Brazil have made light work of Italy in the second volleyball semi-final, winning the match in straight sets.

The first set was a tight affair, with neither side ever really gaining an advantage, but with the scores at 22-20 it was Brazil who pushed on to take the last few points and take the set.

The second set was one-way traffic; Brazil raced into a 5-1 lead and never looked back, winning most points on their way to a 25-12 win.

It left the Italians with a big ask to win the remaining three sets.

They started well, controlling the set but without ever being more than a couple of points ahead. However, once Brazil levelled at 12-12 they pushed on to claim the third set 25-21 for a 3-0 win.

Brazil will face Russia in the final on Sunday.
