Olympic and European champions Norway defeated France 32-24 on Sunday to win their second world women's handball title.


Norway became only the second nation to hold the three trophies at the same time after Denmark, who were Olympic gold medallists in 1994, European winners in 1996 and world champions in 1997.

Norway won their first world crown in 1999, also beating France in the final.
