    Fagbenle’s 28 points was not enough to prevent a second GB defeat in three days

    Britain’s women must beat European champions Spain on the final day of the Olympic qualifying event in Belgrade after losing 82-79 to South Korea.

    Seeking to become the first national squad to qualify by right for Tokyo 2020, GB trailed throughout but rallied with a late 15-0 spurt.

    Temi Fagbenle led GB with 28 points and Johannah Leedham-Warner added 21 but GB lost for the second time in three days.

    GB, Spain and South Korea are now chasing two qualifying spots on Sunday.

    A second defeat leaves Britain bottom of the four-team table and they have to hope that China, who have already qualified, beat South Korea.
