Japan's Murata wins middleweight gold

Ryota Murata beats Brazil's Esquiva Falcao to win Japan's first Olympic boxing gold medal since Tokyo 1964.

A two-point penalty in the final round for the Brazilian helped Murata secure Japan's second boxing gold of the games.

Falcao and his brother, Yamaguchi, who won the bronze medal as a light heavyweight, both fell short of winning Brazil's first Olympic boxing gold medals.
