London 2012: Olympics day 10 in pictures
Team GB added two more golds to its medal haul on day 10 of the Olympic Games.
The British showjumping team won gold after a jump-off with the team from the Netherlands, while cyclist Jason Kenny won the top spot in the men’s sprint.
The showjumping victory, by Nick Skelton, Ben Maher, Scott Brash and Peter Charles, was Britain’s first team gold in the event for 60 years.
Skelton, 54, had a hip replacement last year, and both he and Charles, 52, have suffered broken necks in the past.
Kenny’s victory in the Velodrome was his second gold of the Games - his first came in the men’s team sprint last week.
The 24-year-old was picked for the individual event over Sir Chris Hoy.
The medal was Britain’s fifth cycling gold of this Games.
