Simmonds wins gold in 400m freestyle

Britain's four-time Paralympic champion Ellie Simmonds eases to gold in the S6 400m freestyle at the IPC World Swimming Championships in Montreal.

Simmonds, 18, wins in five minutes 24.02 seconds, 20 seconds ahead of Mexico's Vianney Trejo Delgadillo. Brazil's Susana Ribeiro is third.

Her rival Victoria Arlen was stopped from competing after the IPC ruled she did not have a "permanent" disability and Simmonds says she wished her "all the luck" for the future.
