Team GB’s Charlotte Worthington has won the gold medal in the women’s BMX freestyle at the Tokyo Olympics.

It is Great Britain’s ninth gold medal of the Games.

The 25-year-old from Manchester nailed the first ever 360 backflip to be performed in women’s competition in a huge second run – having crashed attempting the move in her first.

It was just one of several highlights in a second effort that earned her an unbeatable score of 97.5.
