British sisters Becky Downie and Ellie Downie have secured gold and silver respectively at the European Gymnastics Championships.

Becky, 24, took gold on the uneven bars, pipping Russian world champion Daria Spiridonova to the title by scoring 15.5 points.

Meanwhile, 16-year-old Ellie competed in the vault and floor, and came second to home favourite Giulia Steingruber with a score of 14.933.

Becky's uneven bars success means that she reclaims the title she won in 2014, while Ellie's vault and floor silvers take the GB women's tally to four medals in Switzerland, following Saturday's team silver.
