Wales have beaten Argentina 19-12 in the final of the men's rugby sevens World Cup in Dubai.

Wales knocked New Zealand out in the Cup quarter final by one point, winning 15-14.

It was a day of upsets as fellow heavyweights South Africa, England and Fiji all also exited at the quarter final stage.

The New Zealand women's sevens team fared better in Dubai but were also eventually beaten in the first ever women's World Cup final.

Playing Australia, New Zealand came back to level the match at 10-all at the end of regular time - but Australia scored first in extra time to win the title.
