The 26-year-old lightweight, who is considered a national hero in Ireland  after winning four world and five European titles, beat the Russian 10-8.

Taylor, who was Ireland’s flag-bearer at the opening ceremony, was behind after two rounds but dominated the rest of the fight to take the Olympic title.
