Ed Ling won Great Britain's third medal of the Rio Olympics with bronze in the men's trap shooting.

Englishman Ling, 33, beat Czech David Kostelecky 13-9 in an assured display to secure his first Olympic medal.

The Taunton farmer finished joint fourth in the semi-final, leading to a shoot-off with Egypt's Ahmed Kamar.

Competing in his third Games, Ling beat Kamar with ease to move into the bronze medal match, where he missed just two of his 15 shots.

"It was third time lucky for me, but shooting is a funny sport," said Ling.

"Sometimes you can go out there and things can go really well and other times you can't hit a barn door. It is a great sport and I really love it."

Croatia's Josip Glasnovic won his country's first medal of the Games as he secured gold, beating Italy's Giovanni Pellielo 4-3 in a shoot-off.13-13.
