The win was also the ultimate send off for coach Mike Krzyzewski, or ‘Coach K’, who steps down today. He told Yahoo Sport: “It has been the ultimate honour of my life in coaching and I’ve coached for 41 years. There’s no greater honour than to coach your country’s team, and to coach the US team with not just their level of talent but commitment that these guys have shown.”
Inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2001, Coach K became the first to lead three Olympic teams to titles after being brought in to correct the diaster that was a bronze medal in Athens.
