British dressage star Charlotte Dujardin won her second gold medal of London 2012 when she was crowned Olympic individual freestyle champion at Greenwich Park today.

The 27-year-old is only the fourth British female athlete to win double gold at one Games after Dame Kelly Holmes, Rebecca Adlington and Laura Trott.

Enfield-born Dujardin was the last rider to go, and she broke her third Olympic record in three separate London disciplines by scoring 90.089%.

It eclipsed Dutch rider Adelinde Cornelissen and Parzival's score of 88.196%, while Britain's Laura Bechtolsheimer and Mistral Hojris won bronze.
