Jessica von Bredow-Werndl and Isabell Werth make it gold and silver for Germany while Charlotte Dujardin becomes the most decorated British female Olympian.

For her debut Olympic Games, dressage rider, Jessica von Bredow-Werndl isn't doing too badly. The 35-year-old has won her second gold of Tokyo 2020, in the individual dressage, having won the team gold on Tuesday (27 July). Von Bredow-Werndl's routine with horse, TSF Dalera, was described as "something approaching perfection" from commentators, so the three riders yet to come after her performance had it all to do.

This included Von Bredow-Werndl's hero and icon, compatriot Isabell Werth, a veteran of six Games and a seven-time Olympic gold medallist who also put in a stunning performance to claim silver with 89.657 per cent to Von Bredow-Werndl's 91.732 per cent.

Dujardin meanwhile, by virtue of winning bronze on new horse Gio (88.543%), has now become Britain's most decorated female Olympian with six medals. The 36 year old's Olympic medal collection contains three gold, one silver and now two bronze.
