Great Britain’s women have won a first Olympic hockey gold medal by beating defending champions the Netherlands in a dramatic penalty shootout. The final finished 3-3 in normal time, with Britain coming from behind twice to equalise with the Dutch team while keeper Maddie Hinch made a string of remarkable saves. And the Dutch, the current world champions, who were looking to win their third Olympic gold in a row, could not beat Hinch in the shootout, which Britain won 2-0. Helen Richardson-Walsh and Hollie Webb scored the decisive penalties to win Britain’s 24th gold at Rio 2016.
