What is product of cyclohexene react with bromine?

When cyclohexene(C6H10) reacts with bromine (Br2), trans-1,2-cyclohexane.This stereochemistry is obtained because bromine acts as both an electrophile and a nucleophile creating a cyclic bromonium ion intermediate. This means the second bromine, which acts as a nucleophile, can only attack the partially positive carbon from the opposite side of the side that is a part of the cyclic bromonium ring.
