Britain's Ashley McKenzie won bronze with victory over Ukraine's Artem Lesyuk at the European Judo Championships in Tel Aviv.

It is the two-time Olympian's second European medal after also winning bronze in 2013.

McKenzie went into the -60kg repechage final after losing to Russia's Islam Yashuev in the quarter-finals.

The 28-year-old Briton then defeated Hungary's Csaba Szabo to set up the medal decider against Lesyuk.
