French judoka Teddy Riner, winner of his fight for third place against Japanese Hisayoshi Harasawa after previously being beaten in the quarterfinals, took the bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics tournament on Friday in the +100 kg category. .

Two-time Olympic champion in 2012 and 2016, Riner experienced terrible disillusionment with his quarter-final loss to Russian Tamerlan Bashaev.

But with the bronze, he adds a fourth medal to his Olympic collection after his two golds and his bronze of 2008 in Beijing.
