Ole Einar Bjoerndalen has become the most decorated Winter Olympian in history with 13 medals by helping Norway win gold in the mixed biathlon relay in Sochi.

It was the 40-year-old's second gold medal in Sochi and his eighth in his sixth Games.

Bjoerndalen, who also claimed the 10km sprint gold in Sochi, started his haul at the Nagano Games in 1998, and has won at least two medals at every Olympics since then.
