15 Aug 2008 13:18 BST

Satoshi Ishii won Japan's fourth gold medal in the judo competition, defeating Uzbekhistan's Abdullo Tangriev in the men's 100kg category.

Ishii, making his Olympic debut, went ahead on points and easily held on as Tangriev stayed on the defensive.

Cuba's Oscar Brayson, who defeated Mohammad Reza Rodaki of Iran, and France's Teddy Riner, who pinned Georgia's Lasha Gujejiani, won bronze.

Ishii's win meant Japan finished ahead of China in the judo medals table.
