Laurin was joined on the podium by fellow Frenchwoman Paule Marie Ble who took bronze along with Melika Mirhosseini of Iran.

Russia did not have it all their own way, though, as Britain’s Bianca Walkden overcame Kristina Adebaio in the over-73kg division.

Anastasiia Artamonova was another losing finalist for Russia after coming unstuck against Kang Mi-reu of South Korea in the under-46kg category which saw Soukaina Sahib of Morocco and Michal Zrihen of Morocco earn bronze medals.

Other gold medallists came from Brazil, Turkey and the Ivory Coast.

Caroline Santo struck gold for Brazil with victory over Petra Stolbova of the Czech Republic as Anna-Lena Froemming of Germany and Kosar Asaseh of Iran bagged bronzes.

The final two events were in the under-53kg and under-67kg categories as Merve Dincel of Turkey and Ruth Gbagbi of the Ivory Coast emerged victorious.

Dincel beat Alma Maria Perez Parrado of Spain in the under-53kg class as Russian duo Tatiana Minina and Alieva Margarita also sealed podium spots.

Gbagbi came out on top in an enthralling battle with Magda Wiet Henin of France in the under-67kg division as the bronze medals were awarded to Germany’s Vanessa Koerndl and Britain's Lauren Williams.
