Montano wins men's sabre
Italy's Aldo Montano
Montano is the first fencing champion of the Games
Italy's Aldo Montano landed gold in the men's individual sabre, beating Hungarian Zsolt Nemcsik 15-14 in a thrilling final.

Ukraine's Vladislav Tretiak, a rank outsider, took bronze with a 15-11 win over Dmitri Lapkes of Belarus.

Montano, 25, had to fight back from an early 5-1 deficit to take the bout which went to the last possible point.

Montano, who beat Lapkes in the semi-finals, took bronze in the world championships in Havana last year.
