Estelle Mossely punched her way into the history books as she became the first Frenchwoman to win Olympic boxing gold on Friday at the Rio Games, according to AFP.

She edged a nervy split-points decision 2-1 over China's Yin Junhua in their lightweight clash, with Mira Potkonen of Finland and the Russian Anastasiia Beliakova taking home a bronze medal each.
