Hannah Cockcroft produced a thrilling to win gold in the T34 800 meters

“I’m really happy Kare could get the bronze and it was really nice to work together as a team. That’s 14 gold medals now. I keep them all in socks around my house.”

Cockroft was joined on the top of the podium by Sophie Kamlish. She blitzed the field in the T44 100m after setting a world record in the heats.

The Londoner said: “I said I’d do a cartwheel if I won but I forgot.”

Yet veteran blade runner Richard Whitehead had to settle for bronze in the T42 100m two days after winning gold in the 200m.

He admitted: “That was rubbish. I suppose a bronze medal is better than nothing but I’m very disappointed.”

The double amputee quashed talk that this was his last race, saying he will be at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.
