Great Britain take silver in the men's quad doubles after losing to United States.

Great Britain's men's quad doubles wheelchair tennis team of Andy Lapthorne and Peter Norfolk have taken the silver medal despite a credible fightback against the United States.

The US team managed an early break and despite GB holding serve well to bring the scores to 3-2 the US were too strong for the remainder of the set and took it 6-2.

Then in the second set Great Britain were broken straight away before David Wagner held his serve for the Americans to put them 2-0 up.

Despite this setback, Britain battled well and they managed to break at 3-2 down, but were unable to hold serve and were broken straight back, with the US leading 4-3 on their serve.

Norfolk refused to give up and he put GB in with a chance of another break which they took, before holding serve to lead a set for the first time. They broke once more at 6-5 to level the match at a set apiece.

The deciding set was full of breaks of serve as both duos struggled to take control of the game. However, when America broke for 3-2 it left GB with a huge task.

Another break and a hold of serve won gold for the Americans, leaving the British pair with silver.
