Belgian Mourad Laachraoui, the younger brother of one of the Brussels airport bombers has won a gold medal at the European Taekwondo Championships.
Mourad Laachraoui, brother of Najim Laachraoui, beat Spaniard Jesus Tortosa 6-3 in the -54kg final in Montreux, Switzerland on Thursday evening.
A silver medallist at the Summer Universiades in 2015, the 21-year-old has qualified for the Rio Olympics in August.
Najim Laachraoui, 24, was one of two suicide bombers who struck Brussels airport on March 22, while a third attacker blew himself up at on a metro train, with the two attacks killing 32 people.
