Nigeria’s Lauritta Onye gave a masterclass at the Rio Paralympics, first in the shotput, where she won her country’s first athletics gold of the games, and then with her barnstorming celebrations afterwards.

She’s been telling the BBC’s Ade Adedoyin what lessons she thinks others could take from her victory:

“Nothing should demoralise you from moving on… there’s nothing like having determination, have confidence that you can do it.”

There’s a great series of photos from her performance in the women’s shot put F40 (for athletes with short stature).
