Bayley, 28, was clearly happy with his gold in the class seven men's singles, giving a brilliant celebration by standing on the table, hugging his coach - and even embracing a rather unimpressed referee, who had showed him a yellow card.

"My coach said two years ago that if I won I would have to have a good celebration," Bayley told the BBC, "but I got to match point and then thought 'oh no, I haven't planned anything!'

"When I won, 'climb on the table' just came into my head - I don't know where from and once I was up there I was kinda worried it might break. It may look silly, but it was just pure emotion."

Bayley had every reason to be pleased with his 3-1 victory, as he had previously lost to his opponent, Israel's Pereira Stroh, in the group stages.

He also had some famous support, as comedian Jonny Vegas came out of the crowd to embrace him.

Meanwhile, on the athletics field, another medal was won by Britain's Aled Davies in the F42 shot put.

Davies beat the competition with a huge throw of 15.97m - a whole metre ahead of anyone else. Despite his huge win, Davies seemed slightly disappointed with the distance he achieved.

"I could have done further, the shape I'm in. I'm still not quite where I want to be but I just want to win medals," he told the BBC.

Expect big things from both Davies and Bayley in the future - and more golds for Britain later of course.
