Cornish Olympic champion Ben Ainslie has helped to pull off what is being dubbed as one of the greatest sporting comebacks.

The Restronguet sailor is tactician for Team USA who clinched a winner takes all race against New Zealand to claim the America's Cup.

They came from eight races to one down.

Ben Ainslie has paid tribute to Team USA's skipper James Spithill and Team Artemis's Andrew Simpson, who died in training.
