Ukraine celebrate the class 6-8 team gold medal ©ITTF

Ukraine followed one of the best performances of the Paralympic Games so far with one of the best celebrations after a 2-0 victory over Sweden in the men's class 6-8 team competition at the Riocentro Pavilion 3 in Rio de Janeiro. 

South Korea and China also claimed titles today on a busy day of team finals.

The Ukrainians provided the best moment for the crowd, however, after Viktor Didukh secured the second of his two victories.

He had first teamed up with Maxym Nikolenko to win the opening doubles rubber 3-2 over Linus Karlsson and Emil Andersson.

Didukh then overcame Karlsson in straight games to seal the crown before being enveloped by his team-mates.

Soon after members of the British team let emotions rip and danced around the arena after Aaron McKibbin had sealed the bronze medal with a 2-1 victory over China.

South Korea had earlier continued the form they showed with a semi-final win over China by beating Taiwan 2-1 in their class 4-5 final.

Kim Junggil and Kim Younggun made the ideal start in beating Cheng Ming-Chieh and Lin Yen-Hung in four games, 3-1.

Cheng then overcame Kim Jung-gil 3-1 to level matters before Choi Ilsang beat Lin Yen-heng 3-0 to ensure South Korea improved upon their London 2012 silver medal.

"Before the match I was nervous, the result rested on my shoulders but Li Yen-Hsing uses long pimpled rubber on the backhand," Choi admitted.

"I [am] happy playing against that style; I kept trying to change the speed of my play in order to force him to make mistakes."

Defending champions China surprisingly lost the bronze medal match 2-1 to Turkey.

China rarely finish out of the medals in Olympic or Paralympic table tennis, however, and they fought back to beat Croatia 2-0 in the women's category 1-3 final. 

Li Qian and Xue Juan won 3-0 over Andela Muzinic and Helena Dretar Karic. 

Li then beat Muzinic 3-1 to seal the win without the need for the second singles.

South Korea beat Italy 2-1 for bronze.

China then won 2-1 over Germany to take men's class 3 gold in the final event of the day before Thailand ended Brazilian hopes of a medal with a 2-0 bronze medal match win.
