Joe Clarke has won Great Britain’s second gold medal of Rio 2016 by triumphing in the men’s K1 canoe slalom final.

After the agony of David Florence’s last-placed finish on Tuesday, British kayaker Clarke lit up a gloomy Whitewater Stadium with the race of his life.

Clarke not only won Britain’s first Olympic medal in the men’s K1 since Campbell Walsh at Athens 2004 but secured gold in a time of 88.53 seconds.
