Turkish world champion sprinter Ramil Guliyev on Thursday captured the gold medal in the 200-meter men's race in the European Athletics Championships in Berlin.

Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.

Guliyev also broke a record with his 19.76-second showing on day three of the tournament, with British athlete Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake coming in second with 20.04 seconds.

In a telephone call, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan congratulated Guliyev on his achievement.
