Britain's Rajiv Ouseph won his second pool game to progress to the last 16 of the Rio men's badminton.

Ouseph, 29, beat Japan's Sho Sasaki 21-15 21-9, dominating throughout in a promising display.

Compatriot Kirsty Gilmour failed to progress in the women's draw however, losing 21-12 17-21 16-21 to Linda Zetchiri of Bulgaria.

"I hope I'm only at the start of my career and I've got many more lessons to learn on the way," she said.
