The 24-year-old won 18-16 11-5 11-6 10-12 13-11 as Wang suffered a third successive defeat in an Olympic final.

Zhang dominated as China took their second table tennis gold at London 2012 after Li Xiaoxia's win over team-mate Ding Ning in the women's final.

Germany's Dimitrij Ovtcharov beat Chih-Yuan Chuang of Chinese Taepei to win bronze at the ExCeL.
