CAO Yuan and Zhang Yanquan have dominated the men's synchronised 10 metre platform to win gold for China at the London Olympics.

The Chinese pair were far too good for their opponents, scoring a combined total of 486.78 to finish clear winners from Mexico's German Sanchez and Ivan Garcia.

The United States' pairing of Nick McCrory and David Boudia finished third.
