Sprint-king Pistorius bags three golds

South Africa's Oscar Pistorius won three golds on the track at the Paralympics.

The 22-year-old was made to work hard to win gold in the 100m, putting in a late burst to snatch victory from Jerome Singleton.

He set a Paralympic record in the 200m to claim his second gold before setting a world-record time of 47.49 seconds to make it a hat-trick of titles at one Games.

Pistorius has now won four Paralympic gold medals.
