Result: Great Britain's men clinch wheelchair basketball European title

Great Britain's men clinch their third consecutive wheelchair basketball European title with an 87-66 victory over Turkey.

Great Britain's men have won the wheelchair basketball European title following an 87-66 victory over Turkey in Worcester.

The team, which have now clinched their third consecutive European crown, had a comfortable 34-25 lead at the half-time break.

"These are exciting times for this team," Terry Bywater, who was named Most Valuable Player after scoring 29 points in the final, told BBC Sport.

"We have some new talented players coming through combined with veterans like myself and Simon Munn and we play with pride and passion. I think our start surprised Turkey. They beat us in last year's World Championship quarter-finals in Korea so revenge is sweet."

Meanwhile, Britain's women grabbed bronze in a 69-39 victory over France.
