Hanyu defends Olympic title, Uno takes silver

Sunday 06:05 GMT

Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu took gold in the men’s singles competition on Saturday despite several mistakes in an otherwise mesmerising programme, becoming the first man in 66 years to defend his Olympic title and giving Japan its first Pyeongchang gold.

Skating last, Uno fell on his opening quad loop but fought his way back to silver, earning a combined total of 306.90 points. Javier Fernandez, a six-time European champion competing in his last Olympics, made a wobbly landing on his quad Salchow early in his programme but regrouped to earn 197.66 points for his free skate and 305.24 overall.
