Hungary’s Hosszu, sixth in Shanghai and a bronze medalist in Rome in 2009, led on all four legs and touched in a time of 2 minutes, 7.92 seconds.

Coutts finished in 2:09.39, repeating her second place from 2011, and Spain’s Mireia Belmonte Garcia held off Ye and delighted the home support with bronze in 2:09.45, before dedicating her medal to the victims of last week’s train crash in Galicia.
