Lutalo Muhammad suffers late agony in gold medal bid

'I don't want to cry but I am so sorry to the people that stayed up to watch.

Moldova has so far won one medal in Rio, a bronze in the men's canoeing.

"The emotions are very raw right now", said Muhammad.

But it was Cisse, resplendent in his country's bright orange pants, who made the breakthrough in the second with a three-pointer of his own to make it 4-4 going into the last. He next faces Steven Lopez of the United States, a five-time world champion and double Olympic gold medalist, in the quarterfinals later in the day. The African country has only won one other Olympic medal before, a silver in the men's 400m race in 1984. "I'm proud I contributed to GB's record-breaking medal tally but it should've been a gold medal".

Haynes also said it is not too late for a race against a "flawed candidate" such as Clinton when voters want change. But it comes amid another shake-up of the campaign, the second in less than two months.

British number one Muhammad was forlorn at coming so close to the title after taking bronze in London four years ago.

"I am so distraught to be on the losing end here".

"It is a disgusting moment when his score has gone on the board and the time has run out".

In a split second, this decision had cost him gold, as Cisse twisted, turned and connected with a spinning headkick for four points before sprinting straght off the mat and on an impromtu lap of honour.

In the women's under-67kg final South Korea's Oh Hy-Eri upset France's top seed Haby Niare 13-12. There were a few seconds that I was not into the match. Cook narrowly missed out on a bronze at the Beijing Games in 2008.

After a costly appeal - funded in part by his parents - failed to get him reinstated in the team Cook took dramatic action, switching nationalities to fight under the Moldovan flag.

The move was funded by Moldovan billionaire taekwondo federation president Igor Iuzefovici.

"The gold medal for me is the encouragement of two years of hard work".
