Poplar’s Emran Hussain struck gold at the National Table Tennis Championships after triumphing in the men’s team event at the competition.

The 24-year-old was representing Fusion alongside Mike O’Driscoll and Lorestas Trumpauskas, with the trio combining to become the inaugural winners of the category.

Despite Hussain losing his match in the final against London Academy, a pair of wins for O’Driscoll and success for Trumpauskas saw Fusion home.

“It’s good to win the first team event and it’s my first gold medal at a Nationals, so it feels really good,” said Hussain.

“It wasn’t easy, we had some long matches, but that’s not a surprise because we played them twice in the British League this year and I think they both finished 4-4, so we know each other pretty well.”
