Great Britain's David Stone successfully defended his Paralympic Games title with victory in the mixed T1-2 road race at Brands Hatch.

The 31-year-old relinquished his time-trial title on Wednesday and was disappointed with bronze.

Stone, who has cerebral palsy and rides a tricycle, bounced back in the 24-kilometre road race to win his third Paralympic gold medal, seven seconds ahead of Italy's Giorgio Farroni.

David Vondracek of the Czech Republic was three minutes 17 seconds behind in third.
