Michael Phelps now has 19 Olympic gold medals to his name after helping the United States clinch the men’s 4x100m freestyle relay title on day two in Rio.
The 31-year-old came to Brazil as the most decorated Olympian in history and has now won 23 medals at five Games.
A selected all-time medal table shows Phelps in joint 35th position, ahead of the likes of India, which has a population of over 1.2 billion.
Great Britain’s own leading Olympic gold medal-winner, cyclist Sir Chris Hoy, has six to his name, which leaves him joint 50th in the table along with Indonesia, Croatia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Morocco and Lithuania.
There are 206 countries with delegates competing in the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Phelps has more gold medals than 170 of those countries – more than 65%.
Greenland and Western Sahara are both grey on this map as they are not currently Olympic countries.
