Greg Rutherford just couldn't hide his disappointment after having to settle for bronze in the long jump


ICYMI, it was a rather dramatic long jump final in Rio.

We saw Greg Rutherford's run of four straight major championship victories come to an end as a best leap of 8.29m earned him bronze.

American Jeff Henderson took gold with a final-round effort of 8.38m, denying South Africa's Luvo Manyonga by a centimetre, and the Briton was down in fourth until producing his best attempt with his last jump too.

Even that looked like if would not be enough when another American, Jarrion Lawson, pulled out what looked like a huge effort with the final leap of the competition, but he was ruled to have brushed his hand in the sand as he landed, and the mark was given only as 7.78m.

Rutherford seemed pretty disappointed talking after the event. TBH, he looked on the verge of tears. And we were on the verge of tears with him.

"I never thought in my career I would be disappointed with bronze, but I'm gutted," said Rutherford before breaking down for a moment.

"I feel like I'm in shape to jump far, and it's frustrating when you come out of something and you don't feel you've done yourself justice.

But Twitter wants Rutherford to know just how proud we are.

And this tweet shows just how proud his family are.

Super Saturday has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster really, hasn't it?
