Gary O'Reilly just missed out on another medal at the 2020 Paralympics as he finished fourth in cycling's H5 Road Race.

Fresh from picking up a bronze medal on Tuesday in the Time Trial final, the Laois man put in another big performance to finish in a time of 2:24:57.

It left him 27 seconds off winner Mitch Alize of the Netherlands, who took the gold by the slenderest of margins ahead of Loic Vergnaud, with another Dutch rider de Tim Vries taking the final medal.

O'Reilly was another 17 seconds back up the road and he had to push hard in the closing stages to hold off the USA's Alfredo de los Santos.

"I’m chuffed about the Games as a whole," he said afterwards.

"I think fourth today was the best result I could have hoped for to be honest. With the medal yesterday, I’m still struggling to believe that happened, so I think all in all it’s job done.

"I couldn’t be happier."
