Johanna Konta’s Olympic singles dream is over after she lost in the quarter-finals to Angelique Kerber.

The British No 1 went down 6-1 6-2 to the German after some uncharacteristic unforced errors.

The Australian Open champion will now face the USA’s Madison Keys, a 6-3 6-1 winner over Russia’s Daria Kasatkina, in the last four.
