Cornish Olympian Ben Ainslie is hoping that one day he can win America's Cup with a British team.

The Restronguet sailor helped Team USA come from eight races to one down, to clinch this year's competition.

The victory over New Zealand is being dubbed one of the greatest ever sporting comebacks.

Dee Caffari was the first woman to have sailed single-handedly around the world.

Praising the four-time Olympic Champion's performance, she said: "No doubt what Ben did when he stepped on board was trained the dynamic of the team, increase the communications and do what he does best, which is fight and get his boat in front to finish ahead.

"You just couldn't write this kind of history."
