Dubliner Scott Evans is out of the Olympic badminton competition after a heavy defeat by China's reigning World and Olympic Champion Lin Dan.

Evans managed to take just 22 points off the Chinese superstar, losing the first set 21-8 and the second 21-14.

In the new round-robin format Evans was unlucky to end up in a group of just two so has only got one game in this his second Olympic Games.
