Have your say

COLIN Oates will not get to fight for the men’s under-66kg Olympic gold medal after defeat to Georgia’s Lasha Shavdatuashvili.

The 29-year-old from North Lopham, near Diss, was caught by a hold in the additional sudden death period at the end of the usual five-minute contest.

Oates could still win bronze by coming through the repechage to set up a bronze medal match against a losing semi-finalist.
