Claudia de Luca, meanwhile, managed a world record score of 131 to seal the Italian double in the women's event.

She won by a mammoth 12 points over Zuzana Rehak Stefecekova of Czech Republic, who scored 119.

Sofia Maglio also sealed Italian bronze after winning a shoot-off against Mopsi Veromaa of Finland.

The men's double trap has been controversially removed from the Olympic programme for Tokyo 2020 to make way for mixed team events.
