So, so close - USA's Dirado narrowly wins 200m backstroke

USA's Maya Dirado denied Katinka Hosszu a fourth gold medal at the Rio Olympics by winning the women's 200m backstroke by six-hundreths of a second.

Hungarian Hosszu, 27, was looking to add to her successes in the 100m backstroke, 200m individual medley and 400m individual medley.

But Dirado, 23, came back strongly on the last length to claim her second gold of the Games, having helped her country win the 4x200m freestyle relay.

Canada's Hilary Caldwell took bronze.
