Niccolo Campriani, silver medalist in London 2012, went one better on Monday when claiming gold in the men's 10m air rifle at the Rio Olympics.

The Italian got the better of Ukraine's Serhiy Kulish, with Vladimir Maslennikov of Russia in bronze at the Deodoro shooting range.

Abhinav Bindra, who captured India's first and so far only individual Olympic gold medal in the event in Beijing in 2008, just missed out on a podium finish in fourth.
