Guernsey's Miles Munro has become the first Channel Islander ever to win a medal at the Youth Olympic Games after taking gold in the 4x100m relay.

The 18-year-old was part of the British team which beat Italy by over a second, with Germany finishing third.

Munro has also made the final of the 50m freestyle at the event in Nanjing.

He qualified sixth-fastest in a time of 22.80 secs, 0.02 behind team-mate Scott Duncan, another member of the golden relay squad.

Munro holds the British junior record for the event in a time of 22.58 and is the current national junior champion.

He reached the semi-finals of the 50m freestyle and 50m butterfly at last month's Commonwealth Games.
