Dan Bibby’s sudden death try sends GB through to rugby sevens semis

Sevens rugby is new to the Olympics but already it feels like a glorious adornment. Even a rainy night in Rio could not dilute the sudden death drama, with Team GB now facing a semi-final against South Africa after a scarcely believable “golden point” extra-time win over Argentina. A tournament which has also seen Japan reach the last four and New Zealand bow out prematurely is proving to be utterly compelling.
