Vorobieva wins 72kg wrestling gold

Russia's Natalia Vorobieva defeats Bulgaria's Stanka Zlateva Hristova to win gold in the women's 72kg freestyle wrestling.

Five-times world champion Hristova was aiming to improve on a silver medal from the Beijing Games four years ago.

But the speed of her 21-year-old opponent to engineer a fall in the second round proved decisive as the Bulgarian again missed out.
