Our sincere thanks go not only to the Italian organisers for a 'Fantastico' Championships, but also to the Italian crowds for making them such a friendly one... Grazie Italia

England Joint Manager Mark Downes final interview after the presentation ceremoney:

England's new World Champion, William Raison:



The final day is now underway with the traditional 'fill it in session'... quite impressive if you're not familiar with it and it makes a spectacular view from the overlooking bridge!

The Romanian, Szolt Benzar, next to William on peg 37, had great fun with this particular fish and it must have been something of a relief for him... and the crowd, when he finally netted it. It contributed to his overall 4.480kg on the day.

We captured Hungary's Tamas Walter 'filling' it in on the inside line with sweetcorn... and like the fish he was trying to catch, started to nibble his nibblets!

With some 'big guns' around him, Tamas Walter sets the pace in the section with two fish within the first 10 minutes.

Unlike the previous day, Will Raison got off a quicker start here. He didn't let up all day and finished with  superb 10kg+ weight, completely destroying all opposition around him.
