Dame Sarah Storey has won her third Paralympic gold medal in Rio after clinching victory in the women's C4-5 road race.

Her latest triumph takes Great Britain's gold medal haul this summer to 60 having already surpassed the total taken four years ago at London 2012.

Storey, 38, had already become GB's most successful female Paralympian after winning the 12th gold medal of her career on the opening day in Rio in the C5 3,000m individual pursuit final.

She added her second in the C5 road time trial on day six of competition before crowning her superb summer on Saturday with a finishing time of two hours, 15 minutes and 42 seconds.

Storey has 14 medals in swimming and cycling events and is now just two short of Mike Kenny, Great Britain's most successful Paralympian of all-time.

Team GB's Crystal Lane also picked up a medal in the C4-5 event after finishing in third place.

There was more success for Great Britain in the W1 archery event with the trio of Jess Stretton, Jo Frith and Vicky Jones claiming gold, silver and bronze respectively.
