RIO DE JANEIRO - Michael Phelps of the United States claimed the 21st Olympic gold medal of his career on Tuesday by winning the 4x200 freestyle relay and the 200 meter butterfly final in a race that made up for a stinging 2012 defeat to South African Chad Le Clos.

Japan's Masato Sakai took the silver medal and Hungary's Tamas Kenderesi the bronze.

Le Clos, whose run-up to the Games was overshadowed by news that both his parents had cancer, finished fourth.
