In another incredible all-round performance the British team reached an impressive total of 126 medals.

Hannah Cockroft won the T34 800m to achieve a third gold at the Games, saying afterwards that she was “stunned”.

“I honestly didn’t believe I could do it,” said Cockroft, adding: “I just thought Kare’s on the inside and Alexa Halko’s there, I thought I could sit on the back of them. No-one turned up, and I had to do it myself. I just kept going. I’ve never gone that fast on my own.”

Kare Adenegan, 15, who is surely one of ParalympicsGB’s finds of the Games (and one to watch in the future) picked up bronze in the same race said: “It’s amazing. Out of all the events I was nervous about the 800m. It was an amazing race. I worked hard, kept strong and finished strong. I’ve got three medals, I’m so, so happy.”

Paul Blake took gold in the T36 400m and will look to add the 800m title to his victory.

In wheelchair tennis, Wimbledon Champion, Gordon Reid came out on top in an all-British singles final against his doubles partner, Alfie Hewitt and there was more success for ParalympicsGB in the table tennis as Will Bayley, Aaron McKibbin and Ross Wilson won class 6-8 bronze in the team event.

In the pool, Andrew Marron won a silver in the S5 50m Backstoke behind Brazilian favourite and poster-boy of the Games, Daniel Dias, who won his third gold and seventh medal of the Games. The 28-year-old has now amassed 21 Paralympic medals in his career.

The night belonged to Alice Tai, Claire Cashmore, Steph Slater and Steph Millward who between them claimed the 4x100m Medley 34 points title in a World Record time of 4mins 45.23 secs to end a remarkable day.

It has also been another tremendously successful Games for British equestrians and Sophie Christiansen, Lee Pearson and Natasha Baker won another title on day nine in the dressage mixed team event. Team members all won gold in other equestrian events: Baker (Grade II Freestyle), Christiansen (Individual Freestyle Test Grade 1A) and Pearson (Individual Freestyle Test Grade 1B).

Anne Dunham (Individual Freestyle Test Grade 1A) and Sophie Wells (Freestyle Test Event Grade IV) both won silver medals.

John Walker (Individual compound W1) claimed archery gold as did David Smith in the Boccia Mixed Individual BC1event. David Stone achieved a silver medal in the T1-2 Road Cycling and there were bronze medals for Dan Greaves (F44 discus) and Hannah Russell (S13 100m freestyle swimming).
