All-time leading Chinese secured the third table tennis gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games on Tuesday, after easily rounding up the team final against Germany in straight three games.

It has been the 27th Olympic gold medal won by China in table tennis since the sport was introduced at the 1988 Seoul Games.

Their opponents, unexpected finalists who outlasted the 2012 London Olympic runners-up Japan in full five games Monday in the semis, however, should be satisfied after settling for a silver, a first ever Olympic medal in history for Germany's women paddlers.

Earlier on Tuesday, long-time icon Ai Fukuhara's Japanese team beat Singapore 3-1 to clinch the bronze medal.
