JADE JONES is targeting a third Olympic gold medal after finally ending her long wait for a world taekwondo title at the Manchester Arena.

The 26-year-old from Flint beat defending -57kg champion Lee ah-Reum 14-7 to claim her elusive world crown at the fifth attempt, having lost to the South Korean in the semi-finals in Muju two years ago.

Despite previously admitting to motivational issues after reaching the top of her sport at such a young age, Jones said winning the world title will focus her mind on making more history in the sport.

Jones said: "I'm buzzing because I know I can retire happy now, but I want to become a legend and no-one has ever won three Olympic golds.

"I always felt I'd never truly be happy even if I became a three-time Olympic champion. The worlds is one of the most prestigious events in our sport and I'm so happy to be able to say I'm world champion."
