Team France win first gold medal at Invictus Games The Hague

A win in the Land Rover Challenge was the perfect start for the French team.

Team France won gold in the opening competition at the Invictus Games The Hague.

The Land Rover Challenge is the regular kick start for the tournament and the final saw France beat Romania.

The teams navigate a vehicle they have never driven before around various obstacles and they have nine minutes to complete the course which this year introduced a water feature.

There was no medal for Team UK but Dan Phillips and Lisa Johnston put in a good performance for the British supporters.

Prince Harry awarded Team France their gold medals at the opening ceremony to the Games.
