Yang Wei extended China's dominance
China's Yang Wei shrugged off years of frustration to win the men's all-round title at the World Championships.

The silver medallist from the 2000 Olympics and 2003 Worlds finally won gold with a total of 94.400.

He edged Japan's 2005 champion Hiroyuki Tomita by 1.225 points, with German Fabian Hambuechen taking bronze.

Yang's victory ensured China maintained their 100% success rate in Denmark after their gold medal run in the men's and women's team competitions.
