reaction

Great Britain’s Lutalo Muhammad suffered an agonising last-second defeat in the men’s -80kg taekwondo final – losing 8-6 to Cheick Sallah Cisse of the Ivory Coast.

World number four Muhammad, 25, led 6-4 but was hit by a reverse turning kick with the last action of the final.

GB were aiming for their second taekwondo gold of the Games after Jade Jones’ -57kg triumph on Friday.

“I’m so distraught,” said a tearful Muhammad after his defeat.
