Flying moustache' leads Norway to Olympic ski jump gold

Robert Johansson and his magnificent moustache anchored Norway to a stunning Olympic ski jumping gold in the men's team event Monday to deny Poland's Kamil Stoch a Pyeongchang double.

The 27-year-old, who has lit up social media with his bushy ginger whiskers, produced a final jump of 136 metres to edge Germany into silver and leave large hill champion Stoch with a team bronze.

Norway finished with a winning total of 1,098.5 points to Germany's 1,075.7 to snatch top spot in the Olympic gold medal table with 11, one more than the second-placed Germans.

Andre Daniel Tande set the tone for Norway by unleashing a monster jump of 140.5 metres before Andreas Stjernen's effort of 135.5 put their rivals under serious pressure.

Germany's normal hill gold medallist Andreas Wellinger pulled out a leap of 134.5 metres, which was good enough to earn him a second silver of the Games after finishing behind Stoch in the large hill at the weekend.
Stoch had it all to do on his final jump but came up short as Poland's men in chocolate brown suits finished with a total of 1,072.4 points.
