Sochi: A fall and a stumble could not stop Japan`s Yuzuru Hanyu from becoming the first Asian to win the men`s Olympic figure skating title at the Sochi Games on Friday.

A day after smashing the 100-point barrier in the short programme, the 19-year-old won a men`s competition littered with crash landings and flawed performances with a total of 280.09.

Patrick Chan`s hopes of ending Canada`s wait for a first men`s champion also fell flat after three errors in his free skate left him with a total of 275.62.

Kazakhstan`s Denis Ten proved to be the surprise package of the night as a clean programme allowed him to storm back from ninth place following the short to pick up bronze.
