Show jumper Nick Skelton, who became Britain’s second-oldest Olympic gold medallist with victory at Rio 2016, has retired from the sport.

The Warwickshire rider, 59, will appear for a final time at May’s Royal Windsor Horse Show, to parade Big Star, the horse on which he won Olympic gold.

Skelton was competing at his seventh Games – 16 years after a broken neck forced his initial retirement.
