Olivia Breen helped GB to win Paralympic relay bronze at London 2012

Great Britain's Olivia Breen won gold in the women's T38 long jump at the World Para-athletics Championships in London.

Breen, 20, was triumphant with a personal best of 4.81 metres.

Erin Cleaver of Australia was second with a best of 4.61m and Anna Trener-Wierciak of Poland third with 4.60m.

The gold and silver medallists from Rio 2016 were absent, but Breen's leap would have been good enough for Paralympic gold last September.

Aled Davies and Jonnie Peacock had taken Britain's tally to eight golds on Sunday's third day.
