Germany's final individual victory went the way of Johanna Kneer who claimed her first continental gold with a dominant win over Azerbaijan's Farida Aliyeva.

France's Nancy Garcia and Italy's Clio Ferracuti were awarded bronze medals for their efforts.

The Germans then clinched the crucial fourth gold in the women's team kumite ahead of Croatia and bronze medallists Italy and France.
