China win a gold medal in the men's table tennis Class 3 team final after defeating Germany 3-2.

China have recorded a 3-2 win over Germany in the men's team table tennis Class 3 Paralympics final to add to their nation's gold-medal tally.

Germany got off to a strong start in the team contest through Thomas Schmidberger, who took on China's Zhao Ping and managed to put his team 1-0 up on games after defeating the Chinese Paralympian 3-1 on sets.

Feng Panfeng was able to launch China back into the game with a 3-0 win over Thomas Bruechle and then gave his country the lead by defeating Schmidber 3-1.

China had the chance to wrap up the final but Zhao stumbled to defeat against Bruechle, which forced through a doubles contest, where China came out on top to grab the gold.
