Dosho wins Japan's third wrestling gold

Sara Dosho made it three Olympic women's freestyle wrestling golds from three for Japan at Rio 2016 as she beat defending champion Nataliya Vorobyova in the -69kg final.

Dosho, 21, drew with Russia's Vorobyova in the final, but won on countback.

That wrapped up a fantastic night for Japan, after Kaori Icho became the first woman to win individual gold medals at four consecutive Olympics.

Elmira Syzdykova of Kazakhstan and Swede Jenny Fransson won -69kg bronzes.
