The USA men's basketball team retained their Olympic title with a 107-100 win over Spain at the North Greenwich Arena in London.

They led 35-27 at the end of the first quarter, but Spain pulled to within a point at the half time break with the USA leading 59-58.

The Americans have now won five of six golds since the start of the "Dream Team" era when NBA players first played in the Olympics in 1992.
