Greg Rutherford has become the first British long jumper in nearly 50 years to take a gold medal at the Olympics.
Milton Keynes resident Rutherford delighted crowds with an 8.31 metre jump at the Olympic Stadium.
His win came just moments after Jessica Ennis took gold in the heptathlon, which sent the stadium erupting once again.
The 25-year-old and world number one was clearly awestruck and beamed for the cameras as he ran to his support staff and coaches in the stand and hugged them.
Greg was confident ahead of the competition, but the statistics were stacked against him, with Britain not winning gold in the men's long jump since Lynn Davies's in 1964.
