David Rudisha sealed a historic Olympic 800m double as Shaunae Miller's audacious dive and Thiago Braz's pole vault gold for Brazil lit up a wet Monday night in Rio.

Unheralded Brazilian Thiago Braz Da Silva sent the home crowd wild on Monday as he trumped France's defending Olympic champion Renaud Lavillenie to win the men's pole vault title.

Meanwhile, Omar McLeod overcame treacherous heavy rain to successfully launch his quest for Jamaica's maiden Olympic men's 110m hurdles title.

Italy's Elia Viviani recovered from a crash before breaking down in floods of tears in his parents' arms after winning the Olympic cycling men's omnium gold on Monday.

Also on Monday, Kenyan-born Ruth Jebet won Bahrain's first ever Olympic gold when she claimed the women's 3000m steeplechase, and Poland's Anita Wlodarczyk broke her own world record en route to the women's hammer title.
