Defending champion and world number one Serena Williams was sent crashing out of the Olympic Games Tuesday, losing 6-4, 6-3 to Elina Svitolina of Ukraine.

Defeat for the 34-year-old American robbed her of the chance to secure a fifth gold medal and her 2016 Games are now over after she and sister Venus were deposed as doubles champions in the first round.

Svitolina, 21, will face two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova for a place in the semi-finals.
