Brazil retained their Olympic men's football title as substitute Malcom struck the winner in a 2-1 victory over Spain after extra time in Yokohama on Saturday.

Mikel Oyarzabal cancelled out Matheus Cunha's opener after Richarlison missed a penalty, but Malcom ensured Brazil took home the gold medal with his goal in the 108th minute.
