Leeds’s own Kadeena Cox is celebrating more Rio Paralmypics medal success - this time as part of the women’s 4x100m relay team.

The 25-year-old has added a silver medal to her already impressive medals haul of two golds and a bronze.

She was part of the T35-38 4x100m relay team which finished second behind China.

Earlier this week she stormed her way to victory with a record-breaking 400m run to win her second gold of the 2016 Rio Paralympic games.

Cox had already become the first Briton to win medals in two sports at the same Paralympics since 1988, after bagging bronze in the T38 100 metres.

Kadeena races in her first road race on Saturday to fulfil entry requirements in cycling.

“It’s been a crazy Games for me and I can now try and take it all in and appreciate what I have achieved,” Cox said.
