Great Britain won the Olympic title in the men’s coxless four for the fourth successive Games, edging out Australia in a thrilling race at Eton Dorney.
Pete Reed, Andy Triggs Hodge, Tom James and Alex Gregory clocked six minutes 3.97 seconds, with USA taking bronze.
It was British rowing’s third gold medal of the regatta to match their record haul in London 1908.
And it took the team’s medal total to seven to make London 2012 their most successful Olympics in the modern era.
