Juan Martin del Potro has won the bronze medal in the Olympic men's singles thanks to a straight-sets victory over Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon.

The Argentine, who lost a gruelling semi-final against Roger Federer on Friday, broke once before serving out the opening set 7-5.

He got another break early in the second on his way to closing out the match 6-4. The 23-year-old then fell to his knees in tears on Court 1.

The medal is Argentina's first of the Olympic Games.
