Great Britain's Charley Hull moves into third position in Rio de Janeiro

Great Britain's Charley Hull reaches the halfway stage of the women's golf tournament in a tie for third place.

Great Britain's Charley Hull has recorded a second-round 66 to move into third position in the women's golf tournament.

Hull began the day inside the top 10 but she soon showed her intent to move higher up the leaderboard with a birdie on the first hole.

She immediately dropped a shot but five more birdies throughout the rest of Thursday left Hull just two shots adrift of leader Park Inbee.

The score of the day came from USA's Stacy Lewis, who hit 11 birdies during an excellent round of 63 to move into second place.

Team GB's Catriona Matthew remains in contention after a 66 ensured that she goes into Friday in a tie for 13th spot.
