So, Kei Nishikori wins the bronze medal in the men's singles tennis tournament for this 2016 Rio Olympic games! Thank you so much for joining me! They were both so so tired, as am I but I'll be up to do the podcast later! I'm @TimBonvilleGinn, see you later!!

Absolutely excellent match by Rafael Nadal, he gave it a good old go but Kei Nishikori wins Japan's first medal in tennis since 1920 I think! Absolutely excellent, nearly 3 hours for this! Glad my battery held! Incredible

GAME SET AND MATCH!! KEI NISHIKORI WINS THE BRONZE MEDAL!!! INCREDIBLE!!!
