...
And that is the end of the day for India in wrestling. No medal on the day for India but that isn't especially surprising although Harpreet did his best to ensure India at least got a bronze but even fell just short. Join us again tomorrow for more live updates. Until then, goodbye.
...
No he can't. Kazakhstan's Azamat Kustubayev beats India's Harpreet Singh 6-3 to claim the Bronze medal in the Men's Greco-Roman 87kg bout.
...
But the Indian wrestler bounces back in the second period as he scores three points but he concedes one as well. Time is ticking. Can he pull off a miracle right at the end?
...
At the end of the first period, Kustubayev leads 5-0 and Harpreet is in danger of losing by virtue of a technical superiority.
...
It won't be easy, especially against Kazakhstan's Azamat Kustubayev as he races into a lead.
...
And the bout is underway. Can Harpreet Singh end India's day in wrestling with a bronze? 
...
ICYMI: India's Rahi Sarnobat won GOLD in the women's 25m Pistol and also broke the Asian Games record in the process.
...
The medal matches will start at 5.00 PM IST. But Harpreet Singh's Bronze medal game will be the penultimate set of medal games, which is likely to be at around 6.30 PM IST.
...
That defeat now means that Harpreet Singh is now India's only hope of a medal in wrestling on day 4. He will face Kazakhstan's Azamat Kustubayev in the bronze medal bout in the 87kg category.
...
It is all over. Uzbekistan's Jahongir Turdiev defeats Hardeep 6-1. Hardeep crashes out.
...
Hardeep finally gets on the board but he needs more than that to advance through to the bronze medal bout.
...
At the end of the first period, Uzbekistan leads 3-0 and Hardeep will now have to pull something out of the bag to win this one.
...
No he cannot as the Uzbekistan wrestler races off to a 3-0 lead.
...
Hardeep now faces Uzbekistan's Jahongir Turdiev. Can he get off to a good start?
...
Gurpreet Singh's hopes of a medal have been dashed after he lost to Yang Bin via a technical superiority. 9-1 was the final score and the game was all over in 4 and a half minutes.
...
Xiao Di is through to the final and that means that Hardeep Singh will have a chance of a bronze through the repechage round. He will now face Uzbekistan's Jahongir Turdiev for a chance to progress to the bronze medal bout.
...
Harpreet Singh will now face Kazakhstan's Azamat Kustubayev in the bronze medal bout in the 87kg category.
...
Gurpreet Singh will now face China's Bin Yang in the repechage round. If he wins that, he will be through to the Bronze medal bout.
...
Iran's Mohammad Geraei is through to the final of the Greco-Roman 77kg and that means India's Gurpreet Singh will have a chance to claim a bronze medal through the repechage round.
...
It's 3-3. But China's Xiao Di advances as he got the first point. Hardeep now has to hope Di advances to the final to have a chance of a bronze courtesy of the repechage round.
...
And now the scores are level. But that won't be enough because China got the lead and they will progress if it stays this way.
...
The lead is down to one and Xiao Di doesn't seem interested in attacking at all.
...
It has been incredibly defensive from China and India pick up another point with just under a minute to go.
...
The lead is down to two but only two minutes remain in the contest.
...
We are underway in the second period and India finally get a point.
