Tokyo 2020: Pat McCormack wins boxing silver at Olympics
Great Britain has another silver medal to add to the table after Pat McCormack lost a hard-fought men’s welterweight contest to Cuba’s Roniel Iglesias.
McCormack was ranked as the top seed in the category but lost on points.
Earlier, fellow Briton Galal Yafai guaranteed himself a medal by winning his men’s flyweight quarter-final.
In the women’s lightweight quarter-final, GB’s Caroline Dubios missed out on the podium after a narrow loss on points.
McCormack’s silver was Britain’s seventh medal of an excellent day which saw them climb up to fifth in the Tokyo 2020 medal table.
