    Nelly Korda won the Olympics gold medal on Saturday at Kasumigaseki Country Club to make it an American golf clean sweep at Tokyo 2020.

    The world No 1 emulated countryman Xander Schauffele by carding a final-round 69 to finish at 17-under-par 267 and win by one stroke from Lydia Ko of New Zealand and Mone Inami of Japan.

    Ko and Inami had to take part in a sudden-death playoff to decide the destiny of the silver and bronze medals.
