Iran's Golnusch Sebghatollahi took the lead with the penultimate shot of the final of the women's 10-metre air pistol at the Islamic Solidarity Games shooting in Baku on Tuesday and went on to claim the gold medal.

Sebghatollahi, whose previous best result was an eighth place at the 2017 World Cup, edged out Egypt's Afaf Elhodhod by three points in a nail-biting final round.

Home shooter Nigar Nasirova bagged bronze while fellow Azeri Zarifa Gasimova finished fifth.
