    Controversy at the badminton tonight as accusations were levelled at various teams for deliberately losing to get easier draws in the first knockout rounds.

    8 Badminton players disqualified from the Olympic competition.
    From Paul Kelso, Telegraph reporter on twitter
    Paul Kelso ‏@pkelso BREAKING: All eight badminton players have been disqualified from the Olympics
    Christopher Clarey ‏@christophclarey @paulkelso reporting that all 8 badminton players disqualified. Right move but the fault is also with round robin. Bad system
    Seb Coe's comments last night on the situation.

    The right decision though. Sporting integrity is this summer's byword!
