TOKYO,  – Germany’s Alexander Zverev brushed aside Karen Khachanov in straight sets on Sunday to seal the Olympic men’s singles title.

The fourth seed, who ended Novak Djokovic’s Golden Grand Slam bid in the semi-finals, produced a dominant display to win 6-3, 6-1 after just 79 minutes on court.

Zverev becomes only the second German to win an Olympic singles gold after Steffi Graf in 1988.
