Great Britain's women continued their 100% start at Rio 2016 with a comfortable 3-0 win against India.

After a goalless first quarter, Giselle Ansley converted the first penalty corner of GB's second Group B game.

Nicola White bundled in from close range to give the London 2012 bronze medallists a 2-0 half-time lead.

Alex Danson hammered in the third, following good work from Lily Owsley, as Britain followed up the opening win against Australia.

Danny Kerry's side have slipped to seventh in the world rankings after a disappointing Champions Trophy in June.

But they have made an impressive start in Brazil against both the third-ranked Australians and India, who are the lowest-ranked team in the group at 13th in the world.

Team GB top Group B with six points, ahead of the United States on goal difference.

With the introduction of a quarter-final stage, they only need to finish in the top four of their six-team group to qualify.

Britain meet Argentina, ranked second in the world and the current Champions Trophy holders, on Wednesday.

Great Britain goalscorer Giselle Ansley:

"It wasn't our most polished performance but three points are three points. And six from the first two games, you can't ask for more than that.

"It was my first Olympic goal so I'm over the moon."
