OLYMPICS : Mexico shock Brazil to win football gold medal

Mexico stunned favourites Brazil 2-1 to win the men's Olympic football gold medal at Wembley Stadium.

Oribe Peralta opened the scoring for Mexico after just 32 seconds, scoring from the edge of the 18-yard box, and midway through the second half Fabian Marco hit the Brazil crossbar to come close before a completely unmarked Peralta headed his second goal from a free-kick with just 15 minutes left.

Brazil who were aiming to win the football gold medal for the first time, pulled a goal back through Hulk in injury-time, before Oscar headed wide when well positioned.
