Result: Portugal claim team table tennis gold

Portugal earn a 3-1 win over France in the final of the men's team table tennis at the European Games to clinch their first gold in Baku.

Portugal have clinched their first gold medal of the European Games with victory in the men's team table tennis.

It looked like a comfortable victory would be secured when Tiago Apolina beat Adrien Mattenet 3-0, before Marcos Freitas edged out Simon Gauzy 3-2 in the second match of the final.

France managed to reduce the deficit by winning game three when Gauzy and Emmanuel Lebesson earned a 3-2 victory over Apolina and Joao Geraldo in the doubles clash.

However, Geraldo bounced back from the setback to beat Mattenet 3-0 as Portugal secured the gold with a match to spare in the final.

After losing to Portugal in yesterday's semi-final, Austria won bronze with a 3-0 overall victory against Germany, who missed out on a place in the final after being beaten by France on Sunday.
