Great Britain's men's recurve team sealed a European Archery Championships silver medal, eventually falling to Russia in a tight finale.

The Russian outfit won out in a shoot-off, leaving Britain's Patrick Huston to reflect on a hotly fought battle.

"The whole team shot really well," said Huston.

"We've been very supportive with each other, celebrating victories, and it's shown in the results we've posted."

Huston followed up the team competition by claiming victory in the men's recurve bronze medal match, easing past France's Lucas Daniel.

"I was quite shaky on my shots. My form is not quite where I wanted it today but I knew everyone was behind me," said Huston.

"I shot well, I won the match, it was brilliant, an absolutely amazing feeling."
