Dame Sarah Storey continues her incredible run at the Paralympics by winning another gold medal, taking Britain's tally at Rio 2016 to 39 - five more than London 2012.

Dame Sarah Storey was back among the gold medals on day seven of Rio 2016 to help ParalympicsGB surpass their total from four years ago.

The 38-year-old took her own personal tally to 13 medals on Wednesday, having already overtaken Tanni Grey-Thompson as Britain's most successful female Paralympian ever with victory in the C5 3000m individual pursuit last week.

Storey joined Karen Darke and Steve Bate - the latter winning his second gold of the Games - in winning her respective classification road cycling time trial, while Kadeena Cox set a new world record on her way to claiming victory in the T38 400m and Sophie Wells came out on top in the championship test dressage.

GB now have 39 golds at the 2016 Games, taking them clear of the 34 won on home soil in London four years ago.
