Result: Great Britain lose in straight sets to Italy in men's volleyball

Great Britain suffer a third successive defeat in the men's volleyball at the hands of Italy, losing in straight sets.

Great Britain have lost their third successive group game to Italy in the men's volleyball tournament.

A strong Italian side dominated from the outset and proved too much for a spirited Team GB.

Italy were never out of sight in any of the three sets played but won the crucial points under pressure, taking the match 25-19, 25-16, 25-20.

Great Britain are now realistically out of contention for a place in the knockout stages and will be playing for pride in their final two group matches against Poland and Argentina.
