Greg Rutherford has landed a bronze in the long jump with a distance of 8.29m.

The London 2012 gold medalist was beaten by Jeff Henderson of the USA who took gold with a jump of 8.38m, and Luvo Manyonga of South Africa who jumped 8.37m to take bronze.

Ultimately I didn't jump long enough today which is very difficult for me to take.

But it is what it is I guess. I've just got to make do and move on from that but I'm pretty gutted.

Things don't go always go smoothly. I've won a lot and today I haven't won. That's something I'm not used to and something I have to deal with and figure out.
