China is topping the medal tally at the Paralympic Games in Rio, collecting 7 gold, 8 silver and 4 bronze so far.

Shooter Dong Chao has earned China's first gold medal of the games in the men's 10-meter air rifle event.

Meanwhile, Russia is staging an alternative Games for its paralympians who have been excluded from the Paralympics because of Russia's doping scandal.

Events are being held across Moscow, with disabled athletes competing in the same events being held in Rio.
