That's all we had from the Kokugikan Arena in Tokyo today. While the day started on a bright note for India with Satish Kumar winning his first bout of the Olympics, it ends in a completely contrasting manner.
This was probably the last of Mary Kom we saw at the Olympics as per the AIBA rules. But, you never know. She has surprised each one of us with her determination and longevity and I will not be surprised if we see her once again in Paris, though it is highly unlikely.
Thank you for joining in for the live coverage. I will now go and sombre alone to come to terms with this loss.
And as I type this, I hear swimmer Sajan Prakash is doing well at the Tokyo aquatics centre. Click here for the LIVE updates.
