Donegal's Chloe and Sam Magee will take home the bronze medal, after they were eliminated from the European Badminton Championship today.

The brother and sister pair made history yesterday, when they won their quarter-final match to win the bronze medal, and claim Ireland's first medal at this level.

But there was disappointment today, as they lost out to tournament favourites and number one seeds, Joachim Fischer Nielsen and Christinna Pedersen of Denmark.

The pair lost the semi-final 21-14 and 21-10, but they return to Ireland on the back of a hugely successful campaign.
