Result: Great Britain's Bianca Walkden claims bronze in women's +67kg taekwondo

Great Britain's Bianca Walkden earns her country's 64th medal at the 2016 Olympics after claiming bronze with a win over Wiam Dislam in the women's +67kg taekwondo event.

Great Britain's Bianca Walkden has claimed her country's 64th medal of the 2016 Olympics in Rio after beating Morocco's Wiam Dislam in the women's +67kg third-place taekwondo event.

Walkden made up for her exit in the semi-finals by producing an aggressive display, which saw the 24-year-old notch impressive scores in rounds two and three to earn a bronze medal.

The contest appeared close after a scoreless first round, but Walkden rose to the occasion by stretching out into a 7-0 lead going into the final stages of the last offering.

Dislam might have made a contest of things late on, but she was unable to score a point despite a close call that saw the Moroccan almost clip Walkden's nose.
