The superconducting-gap of [Formula presented] has been studied by high-resolution angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. The results show that superconducting gaps with values of 5.5 and 2.2 meV open on the [Formula presented] band and the [Formula presented] band, respectively, but both the gaps close at the bulk transition temperature, providing a definitive experimental evidence for the two-band superconductivity with strong interband pairing interaction in [Formula presented]. The experiments validate the role of [Formula presented]-dependent electron-phonon coupling as the origin of multiple-gap superconductivity as well as the high transition temperature of [Formula presented].
