Azerbaijan's Ruslan Lunev is congratulated after winning the gold medal of the 10-m air pistol final event during the Baku 2017.

Ruslan Lunev made the home crowd happy as the Azeri shooter bagged his fourth gold medal at the Islamic Solidarity Games in Baku on Tuesday in the men's 10-metre air pistol final.

The Azeri ace, who had earlier taken gold in the 25-metre centre-fire pistol as well as the 25-metre rapid fire pistol and the 25-metre standard pistol, added another first place to his tally by edging out 2015 European Games silver medallist Yusef Dikec of Turkey.

Pakistan's Muhammad Shehzad Akhtar produced a strong finish to secure the bronze medal in what was his international final debut.
