David Weir has won his second gold medal of the London games in the T54 1500m race.

The wheelchair racer successfully defended his Paralympic title that he picked up in Beijing.

The 33-year-old said, "I'm overwhelmed really, I'm lost for words tonight".

Weir scooped up his first gold of the competition in the 5,000m race on Sunday night.

The four-time gold medal winner will be back in action on Wednesday morning in the heats of the 800m competition.
