THERE were incredible scenes at the Tokyo Olympic Stadium as the two high jump finalists agreed to SHARE the gold medal.
Mutaz Barshim of Qatar and Gianmarco Tamberi of Italy had been battling it out to go higher.

But when neither could manage to nail their final jumps after three attempts, they spoke to the official about their options.
When it was explained that they could both win gold – Barshim and Tamberi looked at each other – then agreed that’s what they would do.
In true Olympic spirit, the pair embraced each other then both ran off celebrating wildly as they achieved their lifetime goals of winning gold at the Games.
Maksim Nedasekau of Belarus took the bronze medal.
Normally there would be a jump off, but neither had any misses through 2.37m which meant they could share the top medal.
