Pavey 'thrilled' with European win

Jo Pavey says she is "thrilled" after winning the women's 10,000m at the European Athletics Championships in Zurich.

The 40-year-old becomes the oldest ever female athlete to win a European title after seeing off France's Clemence Calvin and her compatriot Laila Traby.

Pavey led at the bell of the 25-lap race and kicked away on the last bend to win in a time of 32 minutes 22.39 seconds.
