ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (Reuters) - Russian Alexander Zubkov secured a golden finale for the Sochi Games hosts on Sunday by adding the Olympic four-man bobsleigh crown to his two-man title.

Zubkov held on to his slim overnight lead to take gold by nine hundredths of a second ahead of Latvia's Oskars Melbardis.

American Steve Holcomb, the 2010 champion, won bronze, three hundredths of a second ahead of Russian Alexander Kasjanov in the RUS-2 sled.

The last man to win the Games bobsleigh double was now-retired German Andre Lange in Turin in 2006.
