Hungary's Gergely Siklósi and Nathalie Moellhausen of Brazil have clinched the respective men's and women's gold medals at the International Fencing Federation (FIE) Épée Grand Prix in Qatar.

In the men's tournament, Olympic silver medallist Siklósi overcame Belgium's Neisser Loyola 15-10 in the deciding match.

The world bronze medallist Loyola had taken the lead but Siklósi's resolve ensured he surged to the gold medal in Doha.

The Hungarian defeated Akira Komata of Japan in the semi-final while Loyola pulled off an upset victory.

He got the better of Olympic team gold medallist Yannick Borel 15-14 after a thrilling encounter.

As a result of their losses, both Borel and Komata had to settle for the bronze medal.

Moellhausen secured a convincing 15-8 triumph in the women's final as she downed Marie-Florence Candassamy of France.

The 2019 individual world champion defeated Kenya's Alexandra Ndolo and Italian Alessandra Bozza en route to the title before eliminating Eszter Muhari of Hungary 9-8 in a tense semi-final fixture.

Muhari shared the third step of the podium with Vivian Kong Man Wait of Hong Kong, who also won bronze in the latest World Championships in Cairo.

The FIE Grand Prix is set to continue next month with the Turin event scheduled to take place from February 10 to 12.
