Peebles showjumper Scott Brash has added a European gold to his Olympic gold he won in London last year.

Once again on board Hello Sanctos, Brash had the pressure role as the final competitor in the team competition last night, with Great Britain having only one fence in hand.

However, Brash saw Britain home in front of Germany and Sweden in the European Championships at Denmark.

Alongside Brash in the British team was Michael Whitaker, William Funnell and Ben Mather, the latter having lined up beside Brash in the Olympic gold-winning GB team of a year ago.
