Padraig Harrington is up to 3-under overall after his third round at the Turkish Airlines Open.

The Dubliner carded a 2-under 69 to match his score from his second round.

Picking up two shots has seen him rise from 1-under to 3-under overall, with one more round of action to go.

The three-time major winner managed five birdies, although he bogeyed the 2nd, 10th and 16th holes.

Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen is the runaway leader at the Regnum Carya Golf and Spa resort course.

He sits on 18-under, a full seven shots clear of the chasing pack.

A 3-under for his second round maintained his steady progress after a 62 on Friday put him well in control.

He is now odds on to win the tournament.

There is a five-way tie for second which includes Italy's Matteo Manassero.

Masters champion Danny Willett continues to struggle as he aims to become European number one.

He is joint-48th after carding a third round 68.
