Aaron Cook

Aaron Cook won Dutch Open gold by beating British taekwondo rival Lutalo Muhammad in their long-awaited rematch.

The pair last fought each other in March 2012, but Cook, 23, won the bout in Eindhoven 10-8.

British Olympic champion Jade Jones (-57kg) also took gold, while Bianca Walkden (+73kg) claimed bronze.

Since they last fought, Cook has gone on to claim European gold, while Muhammad has risen to world number two.

The London-born 22-year-old won the inaugural World Taekwondo Grand Prix event in Manchester in December, whilst Cook - who represents the Isle of Man - was third.

"A big thanks to all those who have supported me," said Cook, who leads the head-to-head battle with Muhammad 3-1.

New world number one Jones, 20, defeated Hedaya Malek of Egypt 2-0 in the final.

Walkden, 22, beat team-mate Stephanie Allen, 21, in the quarter-finals but finished third after losing her semi-final against French fighter Gwladys Epangue.

Olympian Martin Stamper, 27, was defeated at the -68kg quarter-final stage by Turkey's London 2012 gold medallist Sevet Tazegul, while GB's Ruebyn Richards, 21, withdrew injured.
