Bradly Sinden was visibly disappointed after winning silver in the taekwondo -68kg men’s final, losing a high-scoring match to Uzbekistan’s Ulugbek Rashitov.

'I'm gutted. The only colour I see is gold' - Sinden reacts to Olympic silver
"The only colour I see is gold," he said after picking up his silver medal. "Anything else isn't what you want and what you work for.
"I think I'll look back on it eventually, maybe in a while I'll be proud of myself and what I have achieved in these last five years as a senior - winning the World Championships and being so close to winning the Olympics.

I think I came here to have no regrets, and I think being caught right at the very end will get me, but it's tough, sometimes the loss can be the better learning, you have something to work on, I will be putting that into play, we'll review back after having a break and becoming better than ever.
"It is only three years to Paris, and I'm hopeful that I will go one step further and bring that gold home."
