Tadesse Abraham struck half-marathon gold for Switzerland despite taking a wrong turn near the finish in Amsterdam on Sunday.
The 33-year-old veered off course with about 300 metres to go before quickly being redirected back on track as he sped to the finish to clock 62:03.
Abraham had surged away from Kaan Kigen Özbilen of Turkey in the closing stages to win by 24 seconds as Daniele Meucci took bronze for Italy a further 11 seconds behind.
