Cook wins controversial taekwondo final

Britain's Aaron Cook wins a controversial -80kg taekwondo final after world number one Ramin Azizov is disqualified in the final second at the European Taekwondo Championships in Manchester.

Dorset-born fighter Cook trailed for much of the final, but Azizov's defensive tactics drew disapproval from the referee who issued numerous penalties, known as 'kwong-go'.

With a second to go the referee runs out of patience and awards a deduction penalty 'gam-jeom' to disqualify the Azerbaijan fighter.

Afterwards, Cook says he feels sorry for his rival but adds the victory felt "so sweet".
