British short track speed skater Elise Christie took 500m silver in the World Cup event in Dresden, Germany.

Italy's Arianna Fontana won gold, with China's Fan Kexin claiming bronze.

The result left Christie, 24, sixth in the overall 500m rankings and meant Fan has secured the overall title with one World Cup event left.

Christie, who won her first European Championship title last month, took two bronzes in the previous World Cup competition in South Korea in December.
