Using OUTPUT with UPDATE

I have the following code that is giving me an error "Incorrect syntax near OUTPUT." I have not found any examples that combine the use of a JOIN and the FROM clause in the UPDATE, so maybe that is the problem, but any assistance would be appreciated.

UPDATE TOP(1) t1
SET	col1 = t2.col3
FROM	Table1 t1
INNER JOIN Table2 t2
ON	t1.ID = t2.ID
OUTPUT	INSERTED.ID INTO @Updated
WHERE	t2.col4 = 10
