Michael McKillop has won gold at the IPC World Championships in Lyon and set a new championship record in the process.
Michael McKillop won his second gold of the championships, with victory in the T38 1500m final.
McKillop took gold with a championship record of 4:10.17 just three days after his success in the T37 800m.
McKillop was more than two seconds ahead of Tunisia's Abbes Saidi, with Australia's Deon Kenzie third.
The 23-year-old said: "I was plodding along early on and the plan was to go at about the halfway mark.
"Thankfully I got away early with the spurt I put in. I was able to relax after that and then I kicked on again.
"I'm very happy because I set out to win the double."
