North Korea's Ri Se-gwang wins men's vault gold

North Korea won a second gold medal of the Rio Olympics as world champion Ri Se-gwang triumphed in the men's vault.

The 31-year-old scored 15.691 points, with Russian Denis Ablyazin taking silver with 15.516 and Kenzo Shirai of Japan securing bronze with 15.449.

Shirai finished with the same score as Romanian Marian Dragulescu but took the medal due to a higher execution score.

South Korea's Hak Seon-yang won gold at London 2012 but missed the Rio Games after tearing his Achilles in March.
