Dujardin commented after her win ‘I knew I wasn’t going to go down without a fight. I wanted to go out and enjoy it, and he gave me absolutely everything.

‘To win medals individually and in the team in the last three Games, I couldn’t be prouder. And to do it with a new dance partner, I couldn’t be prouder.
