Pyeongchang Winter Olympics: Lizzy Yarnold wins Team GB’s first gold medal

Lizzy Yarnold has won a gold medal in the women’s skeleton at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

She has become the first Briton to defend a Winter Olympics title.

British team-mate Laura Deas won bronze as Britain won two medals in the same event for the first time in Winter Olympics history.

With Izzy Atkin winning a bronze earlier, it is the first time ever that Britain have won three Winter Olympic medals in the same day. It had won two in Chamonix in 1924.

Yarnold is now Britain’s most decorated Winter Olympian.
