Team GB have won their fourth medal of the London 2012 Olympics after the equestrian team celebrated silver in the three-day eventing competition.

The British quintet, which includes Zara Phillips, came second behind the Germans, with New Zealand completing the podium places.

Tina Cook entered the final showjumping round knowing a run consisting of less than seven points would earn Team GB silver and she responded with just one time penalty to the delight of the home crowd.
