Di Francisca wins fencing gold

Italy's Elisa Di Francisca wins the individual foil Olympic gold at the ExCel Centre after defeating compatriot Arianna Errigo in extra time.

The pair were level at 11-11 before Di Francisca scored the vital point early into the extra minute to seal victory.

Earlier three-time Olympic champion Valentina Vezzali needed extra time to beat Korean Nam Hyun-hee for bronze.

It meant Italy completed a clean sweep in the foil, winning all three medals on Saturday.
