Shah Hussain was defeated in the final by Scotland’s own Euwan Burton on Saturday.

 He earlier beat New Zealand’s Tim Slyfield in the semifinal but failed to win a gold in the final.

 However, this was the first medal won by a Pakistani sportsman in the Commonwealth Games 2014.

 Previously, Shah won a bronze medal in the Asian Judo Championship and bronze again at Under-20 JIKJI Cup International Judo Championship held in South Korea.

 He is the son of former Pakistani boxer Hussain Shah, who also received a bronze medal in the 1988 Seoul Summer Olympics in the middle weight category, and was the first Pakistani to win a boxing Olympic medal.
