South Africa’s Cameron van der Burgh has won the gold medal in the men’s 100 metre breaststroke in world record time.

Exhausted van der Burgh lay down on the lane ropes to celebrate his win. His 58.46-second final time sets a new world record. Australia’s Christian Sprenger was second and Brendan Hansen of the United States came third. Japan’s Kosuke Kitajima was fifth.

The champion at both Athens in 2004 and the Beijing Olympics four years ago missed his chance to become the first man to win the same individual swimming title at three successive Olympics.
