Zara Phillips and Team GB take silver in eventing.

Summary: Great Britain have taken another team silver medal in the equestrian eventing competition at Greenwich Park.

Great Britain have taken another team silver medal in the equestrian eventing competition at Greenwich Park.

Despite a strong performance, Tina Cook's single-fault showjumping round and the efforts of team-mates Zara Phillips, Nicola Wilson, William Fox-Pitt and Mary King was not enough to oust European champions and favourites Germany, who took gold. New Zealand clinched bronze.

The second-place prize means Britain is still seeking an elusive gold.

However, the silver gave Britain its 18th Olympic post-war eventing medal.
