RIO DE JANEIRO (AP):
PV Sindhu went down fighting to Spain's Carolina Marin in the gold medal match of the badminton women's singles at the Rio Olympics on Friday, clinching silver for India's second medal at the Games.

Sindhu won the first game 21-19, recovering from a 16-19 deficit to win five points on the trot and take the game. But two-time world champion Marin jumped out to a quick lead in the second game and held on to it, using her favourite combination of a drop shot followed by a smash at the net to win quick points.

In the deciding game, Sindhu fought hard to erase Marin's initial lead to trail 11-10 at the break. But she lost her momentum after the break and couldn't catch up in the end.
