David Rudisha became the first athlete to set a new world record on the track at London 2012 as he won 800m gold.

The 23-year-old Kenyan stormed to victory in his debut Olympic final to become the first man inside one minute 41 seconds, clocking 1:40.91.
Botswana 18-year-old Nijel Amos took silver, with another teenager, Kenya's Timothy Kitum, in bronze.

Britain's Andrew Osagie was in eighth place but still recorded a personal best of 1:43.77.

Reigning world champion Rudisha led from the off, running an opening lap of 49.28 seconds and storming further clear down the back straight to beat his own world record.
