Result: Great Britain finish fifth in team eventing at Olympics in Rio de Janeiro

Great Britain finish fifth in team eventing at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Great Britain have finished fifth in team eventing at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, while France have won their first gold medal since 2004.

It is the first time since 2000 that the Brits have not taken home a medal in this event, but the damage was already done on Monday in the cross-country round.

William Fox-Pitt picked up 20 penalties yesterday on board Chilli Morning, which all but put Britain out of medal contention ahead of the final day.

In the show jumping, Team GB improved, sealing three clear rounds which meant that they would not be able to finish lower than sixth.

France took the top spot on the podium, while Germany earned silver and Australia nabbed bronze.
