The triumph in the men's eight rounded off a successful day for GB, who also secured gold with a dominant performance from the men's four in Switzerland.

South Africa were their nearest rivals, taking silver in 05:57.21, while Romania completed the podium in 05:58.1, but neither was troublesome enough for the reigning European champions.

The pairing pulled away from the rest of the field with a storming third 500m to secure victory, with Romania finishing second (07:02.09) and France taking third (07:03.29).
