Result: Great Britain's Charlotte Dujardin claims gold in dressage event

Defending champion Charlotte Dujardin secures gold in the individual dressage event at the Rio Games, making it 16 gold medals for Great Britain at the Olympics.

Defending champion Charlotte Dujardin has secured gold in the individual dressage event at the Rio Games.

The 31-year-old, who was part of the Great Britain contingent that claimed a silver medal in the team dressage event on Friday, is now a double Olympic champion after her success at London 2012.

Dujardin, alongside her horse Valegro, finished top of the pack with a score of 93.857%. Meanwhile, Germany's Isabell Werth picked up silver, with compatriot Kristina Broring-Sprehe taking the bronze on the Copacabana.

Dujardin has become the first British woman to retain an individual gold medal at any Olympic Games.
