Great Britain finished with silver in the inaugural men's rugby sevens as Fiji beat them 43-7 to claim gold – a historic win as it was the country's first ever Olympic medal.

Pre-tournament favourites Fiji were imperious from the opening whistle.

Britain looked shell-shocked and Fiji added two more tries, with Dan Norton's score little consolation for GB.

The silver was Great Britain's 16th medal at Rio.
