Olive Loughnane has finally received her World Championship gold medal - seven years after she completed the 20k race walk.

Loughnane finished in runners up spot back in 2009 but the winner, Russia's Olga Kaniskina, was since disqualified after being implicated in a doping scandal.

Tonight (Wednesday), Loughnane finally got her hands on the Gold when she was honoured at the European Championships in Amsterdam.
