Great Britain's dressage bronze medal winner Lee Pearson is unimpressed by British judge Sarah Rodger's low mark.

Great Britain's Lee Pearson, who won bronze in this afternoon's grade IB dressage competition, has revealed that he was unimpressed by British judge Sarah Rodger.

Rodger gave Pearson a score of 65.250 compared to his highest of 78.250, which meant he missed out on the silver medal by just 0.050.

"I'm aware of that judge and I'm not sure what the politically correct answer would be other than it's happened before with that judge, and it will probably happen again," the Guardian quotes Pearson as saying.

"She saw whatever she saw, and if that makes her happy then I am happy for her."

Had Person taken gold he would have equalled Tanni Grey-Thompson's record of 11.
