Britain’s Sally Conway added to her collection of bronze medals at the World Judo Championships in Tokyo.

The 32-year-old beat Austria’s Michaela Polleres in the Repechage in the -70kg category.

Conway previously won bronze at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2016 Rio Olympics.

Her hopes of gold ended with a semi-final defeat to France's Marie-Eve Gahie, but she quickly bounced back to floor Polleres and emerge with another medal. Gahie went on to win gold.

Conway was GB’s flag bearer at the opening ceremony.
