The International Olympic Committee has confirmed golf will definitely take place at both the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo and 2024 Olympics when it takes place in either Paris or Los Angeles.

Golf had been guaranteed its century-long return in Rio last year and also in Tokyo in 2020, but there had been concerns it was going to fall off the radar by 2024 - but the IOC has declared that will not be the case.

Despite initial publicity problems in Rio with many citing the threat of the Zika virus as the reason for their absence, none bigger than Rory McIlroy, golf's return to the Games was a success with Great Britain's Justin Rose edging Sweden's Henrik Stenson in a back-nine tussle for the gold medal.

South Korea's Inbee Park landed the ladies event.
