Olympic champion Jade Jones began the defence of her overall World Taekwondo Grand Prix title with sudden death defeat in the -57kg final in Moscow.

The Welsh fighter lost to Iran's Kimia Alizadeh Zenoorin on golden point after the pair were tied on three apiece.

The 22-year-old, ranked two in the world, continues on course to qualify in her weight category for next year's Rio Olympics after the season-opener.

Three further Grand Prix events will be held over the next five months.
