Susie Rodgers picks up gold for ParalympicsGB in the women's 50m butterfly.

Susie Rodgers has collected gold for Great Britain in the women's 50m butterfly S7 at the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

GB have now collected three gold medals in the pool in under an hour, following on from top honours for Ellie Simmonds and Sascha Kindred in the 200m individual medley event.

Rodgers, 33, posted a time of 35.07s to top the podium, with the USA's Cortney Jordan 0.39s back for silver and New Zealand's Nikita Howarth claiming bronze.

The medal marks the second of the Rio Games for Rodgers, who took a bronze in the 50m freestyle on Friday.

Rodgers, who decided to take up swimming after watching the GB team compete in Beijing in 2008, also has three bronze medals to her name from London 2012.
