Host nation Russia finished on top of the medal table as the 22nd Winter Olympics came to a close in Sochi on Sunday after 17 days of competition.

International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach officially closed the Games during an extravagant 130-minute ceremony.

South Korea were given the Olympic flag as Pyeongchang hosts the 2018 Games.

Britain equalled their best Winter Olympics performance with one gold, one silver and two bronze medals.

The build-up to the Games was overshadowed by concerns over the threat of a terrorist attack and the impact of protests against Russian anti-gay legislation.

But Bach said Russia and the Black Sea resort city of Sochi had “delivered all that it promised” and risen above the concerns to deliver an impressive Olympics.
