Serbia won their second Olympic gold in Rio as their men's water polo team beat London 2012 champions Croatia.

The world champions won the final 11-7 to take the title, after winning bronze at the past two Olympics.

Croatia's assistant coach was told to leave the arena midway through the second half after protesting to officials against a decision.

Italy, who were silver medallists in London four years ago, secured bronze with a 12-10 victory over Montenegro.

Davor Stefanek won Serbia's first gold in Rio with victory in the men's 66kg Greco-Roman wrestling.
