Carlo Molfetta of Italy wins gold in the +80kg taekwondo at London 2012, thanks to a judges decision after the bout ends 9-9.
The Rome policeman was awarded the gold medal following a 9-9 draw with Anthony Obame of Gabon, who won his country's first ever Olympic medal.
Obame was just 15 seconds away from a historic victory before a head kick by Molfetta rescued the Italian, who was subsequently awarded victory by the judges at the ExCeL.
