Russia's Roman Vlasov has won a gold medal in the 74kg Greco Roman wrestling final.

Vlasov, 22, overcame Armenia's Arsen Julfalakyan 2-0 in the best-of-three-rounds contest to add an Olympic gold to his growing collection, having won gold at the World Championships last year.

Julfalakyan, on the other hand, failed to follow in the footsteps of his father, who won gold in the same event back in 1988.

Meanwhile, Lithuania's Aleksandr Kazakevic and Emin Ahmadov of Azerbaijan both picked up bronze medals.
