Watch: Leicester's Adcock helps England to badminton silver

Leicester badminton star Chris Adcock has helped Team England to silver in the mixed team event at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The team lost out to Malaysia in the final, losing 3 rubbers to 1.

Adcock played in the first rubber against Malaysia alongside his wife Gabby, winning that match 2-0.

Team England then lost the second rubber - the men's singles - meaning Adcock and his men's doubles partner Andrew Ellis were under pressure to win the third.

But the underdogs lost out to the Malaysian men's doubles 2-0.

That left Team England needing to win the final two rubbers, but the Malaysian team managed to claim gold in the fourth match-up, taking the tie 3-1.
