France's triple Olympic gold medalist Teddy Riner won an eighth Paris Grand Slam title on Sunday after defeating South Korean Kim Minjong by o-uchi-gari in the men's +100kg final, six months ahead of the Paris 2024 Games. 

He had struggled during his semi-final against Uzbek world number three Alisher and almost lost by ippon before the decision was overruled. He then ended up winning the fight by ippon.
