Cho nets GB gold in Manchester

Mahama Cho claimed a gold medal for GB at the World Grand Prix in Manchester with a sudden-death overtime win over Guilherme Cezario Feliz.

The Ivory Coast-born fighter, who represented France earlier this year before returning to the British programme, pulled back from behind in the final round to clinch victory in the men's 80kg category.

Liverpool's Bianca Walkden saw her medal hopes ended in the women's 67kg category when she was beaten 9-5 by Russia's reigning world champion Olga Ivanova at the second-round stage.

Team-mate Stephanie Allen went down 7-2 to Briseida Acosta of Italy while Georgia Barnes won her first match in the 49kg category before falling to China's Zhao Yi Li in sudden death.
