Benson wins triathlon gold for GB

Triathlete Gordon Benson becomes the first member of Team GB to win a gold medal at the European Games in Baku.

The 21-year-old - who trains alongside the Brownlee brothers in Leeds - finishes 11 seconds ahead of Portugal's Joao Silva, with Rostyslav Pevtsov of Azerbaijan in third.

Fellow team-mates Tom Bishop (16th) and Philip Graves (46th) each led the pack for a time, paving the way for Benson to try to take gold.
