A sensational run of 9.79 from Lamont Marcell Jacobs saw him become the first Italian to ever win the men's 100m and the most unlikely of successors to Usain Bolt as the sprint king of the Olympics.
In the end he came home with time to spare in a blistering run of 9.80 seconds that is a personal and European best and came moments after compatriot Gianmarco Tamberi won gold in the high jump.
American Fred Kerley picked up the silver medal and Canadian Andre De Grasse took bronze.
