The crowd at Epsom, Surrey, went wild as the horse, ridden by Johnny Murtagh, was pushed all the way to the end of the one-and-a-half-mile course.

Race tragedy

The win is the second in two years for trainer Aidan O'Brien, whose Galileo won last year's Derby, one of the calendar's biggest horse racing events.

Moon Ballad came in third, some way behind the leaders.

The race was marred by the death of Coshocton, who was put down after falling to the ground while crossing the finishing line.
