Rio Olympics 2016: Teddy Riner and Emilie Andeol win heavyweight judo gold

France's Teddy Riner retained the Olympic men's +100kg title just minutes after compatriot Emilie Andeol won gold in the women's +78kg.

Riner, 27, an eight-time world champion and unbeaten since 2010, beat Japan's world number two Hisayoshi Harasawa.

Earlier, two-time European champion Andeol, 28, overcame Cuba's Idalys Ortiz by ippon to win her first Olympic medal.

France have now won 15 medals, putting them eighth in the overall table.

Brazilian Rafael Silva and Israel's Or Sasson won their respective medal matches to take bronze in the men's +100kg.

Sasson was earlier refused a handshake by Egyptian opponent Islam El Shehaby.

The International Olympic Committee said it was looking into the incident.

Japan's Kanae Yamabe and China's Song Yu won bronze in the women's +78kg.
