Team GB's Jade Jones has progressed through to the women's taekwondo -57kg quarter-finals.

Jones won with six seconds remaining of the opening round bout after she had assembled a 15-1 lead over Serbia's Dragana Gladovic.

The 19-year-old reached last year's World Championship final but she was forced to share an even opening round with her opponent.

However, Jones excelled at the beginning of the second round with six scoring shots to give her a comprehensive lead of 7-1.

Jones was in full control of the bout and she scored with a flurry of shots in the final round to progress into this afternoon's quarter-finals.
