London Eye: A touch of Keegan sees off Briton
Wednesday 01 August 2012
In the badminton, Guatemalan rising star Kevin Cordon took on Great Britain's Rajiv Ouseph yesterday. Cordon is named after the football legend and former England manager that is Kevin Keegan, of whom his father is such a big fan that he named his child after him.
The 25-year-old Cordon played a blinder at Wembley Arena yesterday – just like his famous namesake did at the main stadium alongside the Arena on so many occasions – defeating the British No 1 2-1 to progress to the last 16.
In doing so, he ended Britain's participation in the event at this Olympics.
