Great Britain book their place in the first ever final of the rugby sevens at the Rio Olympics courtesy of victory over South Africa.

Great Britain have booked their place in the gold medal match of the rugby sevens at the Rio Olympics.

Team GB came up against the heavily-fancied South Africa in the semi-final and edged a tight contest 7-5 courtesy of Dan Norton's second-half try.

A late kick to touch just missed the buzzer, handing South Africa possession with the clock red, but they failed to get the crucial score as England turned the ball back over and kicked it into the stands for the win.

England will now face Fiji in the final after the Pacific Islanders beat Argentina 21-14 in the other semi-final.

The winners of that match, which takes place later this evening, will become the first ever Olympic gold medallists in the sport.
