Ainslie closes in on leaders

Great Britain's Ben Ainslie moves up the field of the Finn classification as the triple Olympic champion employs tactics to disrupt Danish rival Jonas Hogh-Christensen.

The 35-year-old used the opportunity of a considerable lead in Friday's final race to sail across the clean wind powering the Dane that allowed Pieter-Jan Postma of the Netherlands to take second place.

Ainslie now needs only to finish ahead of Hogh-Christensen, and no worse than seventh if Pieter-Jan Postma wins Sunday's finale, to become the most decorated Olympic sailor ever.
