The 24-year-old Zhang, in his first Olympics Games, stormed into a 3-0 lead before Wang, the singles silver medallist in Beijing four years ago, hit back.

But Zhang held his nerve for an 18-16, 11-5, 11-6, 10-12, 13-11 win.

Germany's Dimitrij Ovtcharov took bronze after a 4-2 win over Chuang Chih-Yuan of Chinese Taipei.

Zhang's victory gave China their second table tennis gold of the Games after Li Xiaoxia defeated Ding Ning in another all-Chinese clash in the women's singles final.
