Hungary win gold in the men's kayak double 1,000m.

Hungary have won gold in the men's kayak double 1,000m.

The pair of Rudolf Dombi and Roland Kokeny had been second for the majority of the race, but they edged in front at the 750m mark to win gold. A fast-finishing Portugal won silver and Germany the bronze.

Sweden held the advantage from Hungary and Portugal at the halfway mark, and those positions remained the same with just a quarter of the race to go.

However, Hungary took the lead from a tiring Sweden and they just held off Portgual for the victory, with Sweden missing out on a medal.
