MICHAEL Phelps became the most decorated Olympian of all time after winning his 19th medal with a gold in the men's 4x200 metres freestyle final at the Aquatics Centre in London.

Phelps helped United States to a comfortable victory in 6:59.70, giving him his 15th gold to add to his two silver and two bronze medals.

One of those silvers came earlier in the morning (AEST) when he finished runner-up to South Africa's Chad Le Clos in the 200m butterfly final.

Australia was fifth in the 4x200m freestyle final in 7:07.00.

Four years after he climbed to the top of Olympic achievement, Phelps took the last step he needed to reach the absolute peak.
