Irish boxer crashes out
Cameroon's Hassan Ndam Njikam and Irish boxer Andy Lee
Irish boxer Andy Lee crashed out of the middleweight division by the narrowest of margins, beaten in his last-16 bout by Cameroon's Hassan Ndam Njikam.

The fight ended 27-27, but 20-year-old Lee - Ireland's sole boxing contender - lost following a countback.

When a bout finishes level, the best and worst total score given among the five judges are deducted.

The winner is the fighter left with the most points from the remaining three judges - in this case Njikam.
