Canadian figure skater Eric Radford has said he "might explode with pride", after becoming the first openly gay Olympic champion at any Winter Games.

Radford took gold at the Pyeongchang Games in the team figure skating event, alongside his partner Meagan Duhamel.

The pair performed a beautiful routine set to Adele's Hometown Glory.

US skater Adam Rippon, the first openly gay athlete to reach the US Winter Olympics team, won bronze in the same event at the Gangneung Ice Arena.

He skated to Coldplay's O, and Arrival of the Birds by Cinematic Orchestra.
