Nicola Adams was beaten 14-10 by China’s world number one Ren Cancan in the final of the Women's World Boxing Championships.
Flyweight Adams, who lost to the same fighter two years ago, said: “I wanted the gold today and sadly it was not to be, though overall I have to be happy with my week. The Olympics are the big prize, and I hope to go one step further in London.”
It was Adams' third consecutive silver medal at the World Championships.
