Post-competition verdict:

Serevi is a player synonymous with sevens but for the second successive Games he has had to make do with silver.

He is undoubtedly the most skilful player to have graced the world stage in rugby's shortened version and was again on song in Manchester.

The Fijian orchestrated his teams bid for gold from a sweeping position at full-back and finished as the competition's top scorer.

Despite recently celebrating his 34th birthday Serevi still bewitched opponents with his speed, skill and one of the best swerving side-steps the game has ever seen.
