Jade Jones suffers defeat

Jade Jones' first bout back after Olympic glory did not go to plan as she was beaten in the first round of the Swedish Open in Trelleborg.

But Jones insisted her defeat to Croatia's Martina Zubcic - a bronze medallist at the 2008 Beijing Olympics - could help regain her focus after her Olympic exploits.

Jones has admitted struggling for motivation since her London triumph and it showed as she was edged to a narrow 5-4 defeat on Saturday.

Jones said: "Losing this could be a blessing in disguise. It's brought all that hunger rushing back so now I can't wait to get back in the gym and sort myself out for the Worlds.

"Even coming into the competition I knew I wasn't at my best but I just wanted to have a go and get back in the ring.

"Obviously it wasn't the best day but just watching the competition through the day has made me want to get back in there. I've rediscovered the buzz and I can't wait to get fighting fit."

There was success elsewhere for the Great Britain team with both Michael Harvey and George Lee winning bronze medals in the men's -68kg category.
