TEAM GB scooped yet another gold medal at the Olympics this morning as doctor Tim Brabants won the 100m kayak final.

Hospital doctor Brabants, 31, claimed Britain's 18th gold of the games by beating Olympic champion Eirik Larsen from Norway, who took silver, and Australia's Ken Wallace who won bronze.

And there was more good news in the boxing arena, as talented middleweight James DeGale won a convincing 10-3 victory over rival Irish slugger Darren Sutherland to book his place in the final and claim at least a silver medal.

Later today super heavyweight David Price - who has blasted through his competition so far with two stoppages - and light-heavy Tony Jeffries will also fight for places in their respective finals.
