Oxford claimed their fourth win in five years in a supreme show of strength in the 161st men's Boat Race.

President Constantine Louloudis claimed a fourth and final boat race victory for the Dark Blues.

After Oxford's women breezed past Cambridge on their historic first battle on The Tideway course, their male counterparts made it a Dark Blue double with victory by six-and-a-half lengths.

Oxford extended their dominance over Cambridge with a 12th victory in 16 years on a landmark day for the women's boat race.

For the first time in 88 years the women's race was staged on the famous Tideway course that for so long had been the sole preserve of the men.

Hot favourites Oxford romped to a comfortable victory by six and a half lengths, as the women struck a telling blow for sporting equality, racing the same championship course and on the same day as the men.
