Sophie Wells’ paradressage gold yesterday means Britain retains third place in the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games medal table.

The Netherlands keeps top spot, adding a paradressage gold this morning in grade II to its tally. Germany’s gold in the paradressage grade III — which Britain did not have a rider in — plus its showjumping victory means it has risen from fifth to second behind the Netherlands, with the host nation dropping to fourth.

With more para medals being awarded later today, the medal table is likely to change again by tomorrow morning.
