America's Bob and Mike Bryan won their first Olympic gold medal with a 6-4, 7-6 (7/2) victory over French second seeds Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Michael Llodra in the men's doubles final at Wimbledon on Saturday.
The Bryan brothers had taken the bronze medal in the men's doubles in Beijing four years ago.
They are the world's top ranked men's doubles pair, a position they have held for 297 weeks, and together they have won a record 78 doubles titles including 11 Grand Slams.
They also have an 18-2 record playing for America in the Davis Cup but, after losing in the semi-finals in Beijing and the quarter-finals in Athens in 2004, an Olympics gold was the missing prize.
Now the American duo have the doubles Golden Slam -- all four major doubles titles and Olympic doubles gold -- and they celebrated in style with an on-court dance routine.
The Bryans broke in the first game of the match and that was all they needed to take the first set.
