Rio Olympics 2016: GB's Nick Skelton wins show jumping gold

British show jumper Nick Skelton has become Britain's second-oldest Olympic gold medallist in his seventh Games. The 58-year-old, who initially retired 16 years ago after breaking his neck in two places, claimed individual gold after a six-way jump-off. It is Britain's first individual show jumping medal since Anne Moore's silver in 1972, and adds to Skelton's gold in the team event at London 2012.
