Judoka Sally Conway wins bronze for Team GB

Sally Conway adds another bronze to Team GB's medal haul at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Judoka Sally Conway has added another bronze to Team GB's medal haul at the Olympics in Rio.

The martial artist defeated Austria's Bernadette Graf 1-0 in a playoff contest to secure a podium finish.

Conway, who won a bronze medal for Scotland at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, was denied the right to compete for gold after losing to Colombia's Yuri Alvear.

The 29-year-old defeated world champion Gevrise Emane of France en route to the podium, but was overcome by the hard-hitting South American in the 70kg semi-final.

Conway's bronze marks Team GB's ninth medal in Rio.
