LAMONT JACOBS has created history by claiming gold in the Men’s 100m at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
The Italian, 26, out-sprinted his opponents to the line to record a time of 9.80.
And in doing so he became the first different winner of the event after Usain Bolt’s reign, with the Jamaican winning in 2008, 2012 and 2016.
Team GB’s Zharnell Hughes was set to become the first Brit to race the 100m final since Sydney 2000 but a false start crushed his Olympic dream in cruel fashion.
