Great Britain’s Bryony Page claimed her second Olympic medal as she won bronze in the women’s trampolining final.

The Rio 2016 silver medallist, 30, qualified with the third-best overall score and took the lead in the final with a score of 55.735.

With two athletes to go, that secured a medal, and the next routine saw China’s Zhu Xueying go clear with 56.635.

And that proved enough for gold as team-mate Liu Lingling had to settle for silver after scoring 56.350.

Zhu is ranked as the world number two behind Liu, while Page is sixth.

Her team-mate Laura Gallagher, 32, failed to reach the final after being unable to finish her second routine in qualifying.
