Rio de Janeiro: Michael Phelps captured his 21st Olympic gold in devastating fashion, sealing victory with a kiss.

The American crushed rival Chad le Clos to regain his 200 metres butterfly title, celebrating victory in a race bristling with tension by pointing to the sky and gesturing to the Rio crowd to “bring the noise” — an order they duly obeyed.

World record holder Phelps, the most decorated athlete in Olympic history, also won his 19th Olympic gold at the weekend and if he feels greedy, there is more potential gold for him in the 100m fly and the 200m individual medley events he has incredibly won at the past three Olympics.
