Canoeist David Florence wins on C1 Lee Valley return

Two-time Olympic silver medallist David Florence wins the C1 slalom at Lee Valley in the first World Cup event of the season.

It is the first time the venue has hosted international competition since London 2012 and Florence enjoyed home advantage, edging out Slovakia's Michal Martikan with a total time of 99.87.

Florence, who won double gold at last year's World Championships, will compete alongside fellow Olympic silver medallist Richard Hounslow in the C2 event on Sunday.
