Kate cheers on hockey team's bronze

The Duchess of Cambridge joined in a standing ovation as the British women's hockey team won a bronze medal.

Wearing a white Team GB T-shirt and white skirt, Kate applauded the team as they beat New Zealand 3-1 at the Olympic Park.

The stands of the Riverside Arena were awash with red, white and blue as the home crowd cheered and clapped along to pop music played by a brass band, while the outdoor setting meant they were able to bask in the bright sunshine.

After an emotional group hug, the team carried out a victory lap of the pitch, clapping to show their appreciation to supporters and waving Union flags over their heads.

It was only the second bronze medal in the British women's hockey team's history.

The duchess, a keen hockey player during her school days, had also cheered on the team on Thursday, when they lost 2-1 to Argentina in the semi-final.

She also visited the team during pre-Games training at the park back in March when she had a go on the bright blue pitch herself.

She was captain of the first XI at Marlborough College.
