Galal Yafai reflects on flyweight boxing gold


Galal Yafai claimed flyweight boxing gold for Great Britain after a split decision win over Carlo Paalam of the Philippines. The 28-year-old floored his opponent in the opening round with a straight left and edged a high-octane contest to secure the verdict. It concluded a stunning run of form for the Birmingham boxer, who was competing in his second Olympics having lost his second bout at Rio 2016.
