    During the presentation, there was a note of congratulations for Heather Watson - Britain's fifth team member - who has been absent through illness all week and wasn't able to play any of the rubbers. She would have been one of the first selections for the doubles matches you'd have thought.

  3. Post update

    Britain will now play in April's World Group II play-offs for a third successive year. The winner of that play-off will then progress to the second tier of women's team tennis.

  4. 'Konta pushed through barriers'

    Katie Boulter speaking to BT Sport: "Honestly, I am so proud of this girl [Konta] to get the job done. She worked so hard and pushed through barriers I'm sure she didn't want to go through today."

    Harriet Dart on whether she prepared to play the doubles: "Always ready!"

    On making her Fed Cup debut: "I have loved every minute of it. Thank you to everyone who has come. I can't wait for the next one."

    Team-mate Katie Swan: "I don't think we could have asked for anything more. I am so proud of the team for coming through tough matches this week. Hopefully we get a home tie in April!"

    Johanna Konta is awarded her medal first, closely followed by Katie Boulter, Harriet Dart and Katie Swan.

    They looked surprised to have a medal!

    Anne Keothavong is also handed one. She's been a brilliant captain this week - calm and as cool as a cucumber. Good job team!

  6. Post update

    The British team, including the coaches and the support staff, all gather in the centre of the court to huddle around and celebrate.

    The presentation is underway and each member of the team are being called up.

  7. 'I'm just so proud'

    British team captain Anne Keothavong speaking to BT Sport: "It has just been an unforgettable week. Everyone has made it so special for the team.

    "The guts, the courage by Jo and Katie today... Physically, if I could tell you what's going on behind the scenes!

    "These girls are so strong. I don't know what to say. I'm just so proud."

  8. Post update

    Johanna Konta speaking to BT Sport: "I'm feeling pretty rubbish but it's okay. I didn't get a chance to say thank you. It means a lot to everyone. Here's to hoping for a home tie in April.

    "Honestly, the only thought that I had was that if it was me out here than it would be another obstacle.

    "I had to make sure she had to win it. I had to understand my limitations quickly and try to bring the most out of myself with what I had.

    "I zoned in on looking on the ball which enabled me to strike the ball and place it where I wanted to."

    An exhausted Konta sinks to the floor. She has given so, so much to the GB cause this week. How she found the strength to steady herself and win that match, it's hard to know.

    Its yet another gutsy performance that has made this crowd extremely proud.

    Konta
  10. Post update

    Clare Balding is currently telling the crowd that Konta collapsed after the second set.

  11. Post update

    Konta's spent more than 10 hours on court in the last four days. Her mum and dad race down to comfort her. She's given absolutely everything!

  12. Post update

    Konta falls to the ground and is clearly exhausted. Anne Keothavong runs over to her to make sure she's okay and summons over the medical staff. She's helped to her feet and is escorted off the court. Hopefully she's going to be okay! She's crying at the moment but can you blame her?

  13. Game, set and match

    Konta 7-6 (7-1) 3-6 6-2 Krunic

    The first is lost. Krunic blasts a forehand into the corner...

    But Konta slams a backhand cross-court to win it! SHE'S DONE IT!!!!

  14. Two match points

    Konta 7-6 (7-1) 3-6 5-2 Krunic*

    Krunic hooks her backhand wide and Konta slams a forehand down the line. 30-0 up! The Serb reacts with a one-two punch but then skews a forehand!

    Two match points for Konta! This is extraodinary!

  15. Post update

    I'm exhausted just watching Krunic! She's a little pocket rocket. She slides everywhere and has agility only Novak Djokovic can match.

  16. Konta holds

    Konta 7-6 (7-1) 3-6 5-2 Krunic*

    Krunic attacks the serve and smashes a winner. Konta responds with a whipping backhand and the Serb's return then drops inches out of the line.

    Krunic somehow manages to keep the ball in play in a stunning rally but eventually Konta beats her with a forehand. How is the Serb getting to these!?

    She gets to another one and lobs Konta! The Brit finishes it off with a slam. Phew!

    If Konta can get herself to within one service hold of victory, this crowd would become so loud, it would be hard to see Krunic fighting back.

    But this game and these points, at 4-2, are simply huge.

  18. Krunic holds

    *Konta 7-6 (7-1) 3-6 4-2 Krunic

    The Brit's forehand return flies long and Krunic crawls up the court before Konta's backhand falls short.

  19. 'Very brave'

    Russell Fuller

    BBC tennis correspondent at University of Bath

    This is very brave from Konta. She has hit some colossal backhands in this third set.

    And we have seen her work through situations like this in the past. There are not many similarities between Bath in February and New York in early September, but in the US Open of 2016 Konta battled back to beat Tsvetana Pironkova after collapsing on court.

    On that occasion, she reported shaking and an increased heart rate. “My whole body felt in shock,” she said, after recovering to win the match.
