Jordan's Abdel Rahman Almasatfa had to settle for the bronze medal in the Men's Karate Kumite 67kg at the Tokyo Olympics.

The Jordanian karateka lost to Turkey's Eray Samdan in the semi-final ending his hopes of reaching the gold medal match.

This is Jordan's second medal at the current Olympics following Saleh Al-Sharabaty's silver in taekwando 80kg event last week.
