Christian Taylor leapt to the Olympic triple jump title with a jump of 17.81m – the biggest in the world this year.

The American, 22, won the world title in Daegu last year and was in trouble when he fouled his first two efforts before finding the killer distance.

Compatriot Will Claye took silver with 17.62m, while Fabrizio Donato of Italy collected the bronze with 17.48m.

British hope Phillips Idowu failed to qualify for the final after registering just 16.53m in qualifying.

Idowu’s biggest jump this season was 17.31m which would only have been good enough for a fifth-placed finish.

Donato set the early mark with a first-round leap of 17.38m, and Claye then hit the front when he went to 17.54m.

Taylor was red-flagged on his first two attempts and needed a 17.15m effort with his third to keep him in the final, but then crucially pulled out a 17.81m jump with his next visit to the runway.

Claye improved on his next visit but could not connect with his final approach to leave Taylor as the new Olympic champion.
