Fionnuala Britton has finished just outside the medals at the European Cross-Country Championships in Belgrade.

The Wicklow athlete was bidding for an unprecedented third successive triumph in the race but it wasn't to be as she finished fourth.

France's Sophie Duarte was a convincing winner of the race while Great Britain's Gemma Steele out-fought Portugal's Ana Dulce Felix for the second spot on the podium.

Ireland finished sixth overall in the team event.

Paul Robinson finished ninth in the under-23 event for men while Sean Tobin finished in the same position in the junior event.
