South Korea's Kim Hyeonwoo won his country's first wrestling gold of the London Olympic Games with a powerful victory in the Greco-Roman 66kg final.

Kim beat Hungary's Tamas Lorincz in two rounds without dropping a point.

To huge cheers in a packed wrestling arena, Kim bowed down in the middle of the mat and kissed his country's flag.

The South Korean, who fought the final with a badly swollen right eye, narrowly beat the 2008 Olympic champion Steeve Guenot of France in the semi-finals.
