Result: Rajiv Ouseph wins badminton bronze for England

Team England's Rajiv Ouseph comes from behind to beat HS Prannoy of India in the men's badminton singles bronze-medal match at the Commonwealth Games.

Team England's Rajiv Ouseph has come from behind to beat India's HS Prannoy in the men's badminton singles bronze-medal match at the Commonwealth Games.

Ouseph - who was beaten by Prannoy's compatriot Srikanth Kidambi in the semi-final - looked on course to miss out on the medals when he lost the opening set 21-17.

A thrilling second set followed as Ouseph battled to take his Games campaign into a decider, and after almost half an hour he eventually levelled things up with a 25-23 victory - at one stage coming from five points down.

Having lost such a closely-fought encounter, Prannoy struggled to recover going into the final set and it proved to be Ouseph's easiest of the match, taking it 21-9 in just 16 minutes.

The result sees Ouseph win his second bronze of the Games following the same outcome in the team event, adding to the two silvers and one bronze he had picked up from the past two Commonwealth competitions.
