“We’re empty-handed and we’re gutted,” said team captain Sally Watkins after the play-off for third place. “The team really deserved something out of the whole tournament.

“They played so well today and to stand there in fourth place at the closing ceremony was just so sad.”

England suffered a major setback when they lost both morning foursomes, despite playing excellent golf. “The scoring was fantastic in both matches,” said Sally. “There was something like 11 birdies in each match. It was phenomenal golf.”

In the final, Sweden beat the Netherlands 5-2 to win the gold medal.
