For Rajiv Ouseph, his European Men’s Singles gold - won with a 21-19, 21-19 victory of Anders Antonsen on Sunday in Denmark – marks the start of a big week in which he will also get married to former GB Badminton star Kate Robertshaw.
He becomes only the third Englishman in the 49 year history of the Championships to be crowned European champion and the first for 27 years.
It was also second time lucky for England’s number one, having been runner up three years ago and today’s gold – his fourth from a career at the European Championships – completes a set that also includes silver and two bronze.
Here he talks to BADMINTON Europe's Mark Phelan after being crowned European champion.
