London: Sharif Sharifov of Azerbaijan won an Olympic wrestling gold medal in men's 84-kilogram freestyle, beating Jaime Yusept Espinal of Puerto Rico 6-1, 2-0 on Saturday.

Sharifov, the defending world champion, beat American Jake Herbert in a quarterfinal that led to a post-match dispute between U.S. coach Zeke Jones and officials.

Sharifov bounced back with wins over three-time Asian champion Ehsan Naser Lashgari in the semifinals and Espinal in the final.

Toghrul Asgarov of Azerbaijan won the 60-kilogram gold earlier on Saturday.
