South Korea's Hyejin Chang beat German Lisa Unruh to win Olympic gold in the women's individual archery in Rio.

Chang, who was part of the women's team who won gold on Sunday, beat Unruh 6-2 to win her second gold of these Games.

Her compatriot and defending champion Ki Bo-bae took bronze after beating Mexico's Alejandra Valencia.

Great Britain's Naomi Folkard, appearing in her fourth Olympics, secured her best ever finish as she came seventh.

"I'm not planning on continuing. I've been a full-time archer for 11 years now and I need a life," Folkard said.

"I want to get into coaching and bring the next lot up to become Olympic champions."
