England’s Paul Drinkhall and Jo Parker are worthy, happy and popular winners of the bronze in the mixed doubles table tennis. They beat the Aussie pair 3-1 (11-5, 5-11, 13-11, 11-6) in a fast-paced, nail-biting game that the crowd loved. Perhaps not as satisfying as beating the all-conquering Singaporeans, I’ll warrant, but another fantastic result for England’s table tennis contingent – who were all cheering their team-mates on from the stands.

Perhaps another medal on Wednesday as Baggaley and Pitchford appear in the men’s doubles semis. Parker and Drinkhall are now being mobbed by the Indian crowd after the most entertaining match of the day.
