Berwickshire's Sammi Kinghorn has won her third gold medal at IPC European Championships in Swansea.

The teenager was taking on Turkey's Hamide Kurt in the final of the women's T53 800 metres. And she turned in another fine performance.

The 800m win adding another Gold to the two she'd already won this week in the 100 and 400.
