Donegal's Mark English has won a bronze medal at the European Indoor Athletics Championships in Glasgow.

The Letterkenny athlete ran 1:47.39 in the 800 metres final.

It's been a dramatic weekend for English who qualified for the final after an appeal as he was tripped in the semi-final.

English, a former Letterkenny AC member who now runs with UCD AC, was behind the winner Alvaro de Arriba of Spain (1:46.83) and Britain's Jamie Webb 1:47.13.

English (25) won a silver in this event four years ago.
