Jonas Mueller clinched a first Luge World Championship title of his career with victory in the men's sprint in Winterberg.

The 21-year-old Austrian held off the challenge of German Felix Loch to fly across the line in 35.835 and take a momentous gold in his fledgling career.

Mueller was the quickest out the blocks in the competition and it worked to his advantage as he sealed the win by just 0.024s to edge three-time Olympic champion Loch into silver.
