Mattias Falck och Kristian Karlsson är världsmästare i bordtennis. Svenskduon säkrade guldet efter att ha besegrat sydkoreanska Jang Woo-Jin och Lim Jong-Hoon med 3–1 i set.

– Det är euforiskt. Det har varit fantastiskt hela turneringen att få spela framför er, säger Mattias Karlsson i SVT:s sändning.

VM-guldet är Sveriges första i dubbel sedan Peter Karlsson och Thomas von Scheele vann 1991.

Falck och Karlsson gick mot en klar seger efter att ha vunnit de två första seten, men Jang och Lim spelade upp sig och vann det tredje.

I ett dramatiskt fjärde set kunde Sverige till slut vinna med 12–10 och säkra guldmedaljen.
