HOT favourite Ben Maher won the individual gold medal in show jumping in spectacular style at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games with Explosion W. The four-time Olympian adds it to his team gold medal from London in 2012 and it is Britain’s second individual gold medal in-a-row following Nick Skelton’s 2016 Rio title.

Just as he was five years ago in Rio, Sweden’s Peder Fredricson was beaten by a Briton into the silver medal position with All In. The 15-year-old Kashmir van Schuttershof gelding became the first horse in almost 100 years to win two individual jumping medals. Bronze went to The Netherlands’ Maikel van der Vleuten, who has a silver team medal from London 2012, with Beauville Z.
