South Korea’s Yung Hwan Kim produced a stunning performance to edge out local favourite Aron Szilagyi and claim the 12th edition of the Budapest Grand Prix on Sunday.

The experienced fencer was made to battle hard throughout the contest and went behind in the early stages before stepping it up a gear, eventually winning through 15-13, his first major win since taking gold at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

The bronze medals were won by Italy’s Diego Occhiuzzi and fellow countryman Luigi Samele while World champion Venyamin Reshetnikov endured a disappointing day as he was knocked out in the quarterfinals.
