France stunned an all-star American line-up 83-76 to make a winning start in the men’s basketball at the Olympics.

The United States arrived in Tokyo boasting an all-star roster of some of the NBA’s finest, including Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Damian Lillard.

The bookies made them odds-on favourites to leave with gold and they remain odds-on at 2/5 with bet365 despite the loss.

However, France have a couple of NBA stars of their own and they came up big in a huge win that makes them 10/1 dark horses for the Olympic title.

Boston Celtics’ Evan Fournier racked up 28 points that included a crucial three-pointer late on that all but sealed the win.

Utah Jazz centre Rudy Gobert chipped in with 14 and was a dominant force in the paint for them.

The pair helped erase a seven-point deficit with just 210 seconds to go, as France embarked on a 16-2 run to seal the victory.
