Irish lightweight boxer Kellie Harrington won gold in Tokyo after beating Brazil's Beatriz Ferreira on the final day of the Olympics.

The St Mary's boxer came back from a 3-2 decision against her in the first round to take the second two rounds and ultimately win her lightweight final by unanimous decision.

While the Brazilian boxer came out firing, Harrington was composed under pressure and controlled the tempo of the fight, winning by unanimous decision at the end of round three.
