A three-time K1 world champion, Fox is yet to stand at the top of an Olympic podium, winning silver in London in 2012 and bronze in Rio four years later.

She entered the competition as a strong favourite after posting a qualifying time of 98.46 seconds, some three seconds faster than her nearest rival, Germany's Ricarda Funk. 

A couple of time penalties proved crucial for Fox, who was visibly shattered moments after the final. 

Germany's Ricarda Funk finished with the gold medal, beating defending champion Maialen Chourraut.
