China's legendary coach Lang Ping admitted that while her team probably wasn't the most skilled or talented at the Games, they had the strongest will to win.

The 55-year-old praised her team for their remarkable effort and admitted they hadn't expected to win the gold after their poor start.

China were defeated in the group phase by the Netherlands and Serbia, but she kept encouraging her girls while they still had a chance: "We will not give up," she would say. "We should make every point count".

Lang didn't confirm whether she would continue as coach for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, but she did say the spirit of Chinese women's volleyball team should continue, whether she's there or not.
