Adams later posted a video to Twitter, thanking fans for their support.

Her triumph came shortly after Tom Daley was denied a chance at a second medal at the Games after crashing out during the semifinal of the men's individual diving.

Team GB now has 65 medals - 27 gold, 22 silver, and 16 bronze.

Adams is now a double Olympic boxing champion, and the first female British athlete to successfully defend the boxing title.
