Paralympics GB's Will Bayley has won silver in the Men's Singles table tennis - Class 7.

The 24-year-old from Poole in Dorset lost to 47-year-old Jochen Wollmert from Germany at the ExCel in London by three games to one.

Whilst recovering from cancer aged seven, Will discovered he could play a good game of Table Tennis.

Thanks to his Grandma, who bought him his first table, Will continued to progress in the sport.

At the age of 12 he joined Byng Hall Table Tennis Club in Tunbridge Wells where he continued to improve before moving on to represent Kent men’s team of non-disabled players.

Will was born with arthrogryposis, a rare congenital disorder that affected all four of his limbs.**
