golang gorm and mysql: how can I retrieve instance of last added item

I'm using github.com/jinzhu/gorm with a mysql backend. I want to retrieve the Id (or the full entity) of the row in the previous Create call.

As in, last-insert-id: (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/information-functions.html#function_last-insert-id)

How can I do this?

Answer
type User struct {
  Id int
  Name string
}

user := User{Name: "jinzhu"}
db.Save(&user)
user.Id -> last insert id
