Rio 2016 Olympics: Brazil beat Germany on penalties in men's football final

Neymar was the hero as Brazil won a first-ever Olympic football gold after a dramatic penalty shootout.
Barcelona superstar Neymar put the hosts ahead in stunning fashion with a 25-yard free-kick before the break.
However, Germany hauled themselves level in the second-half when Schalke's Max Meyer fired home into the bottom corner.
Neither side could find a winner in normal time as the game went into the added 30.
Nils Petersen saw his spot kick saved leaving Neymar to sweep home to spark stunning scenes of celebration.
