Rio de Janerio: Chinese duo Fu Haifeng and Zhang Nan defeated Malaysia's Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong to win gold in a pulsating men's badminton doubles final in Rio on Friday.

Malaysia won the first game 21-16 before China got back in the match 21-11 in the second. But the Chinese pair clinched the final game 23-21 in a dramatic finish.

The Malaysians were 21-20 up in the decider and had a first ever Olympic gold medal for their country in their sights, but a miss-hit serve put China level.

The Chinese then won the next two points to break Malaysian hearts.

It was the second consecutive Olympic gold medal in men's doubles for 32-year-old Fu. He also claimed silver at Beijing 2008.

Zhang, 26, collected his second medal of Rio 2016 after claiming bronze in the mixed doubles.
