Brazil suffer defeat in Olympics final

LONDON – Juan Jesus tasted Olympic disappointment in the final today. The Nerazzurri defender’s Brazil team was beaten 2-1 by Mexico at Wembley. Peralta grabbed a brace for the Mexicans – the first after just 27 seconds, the second in the 75th minute – before Hulk scored a consolation goal for the Seleção in added time.

Juan, who played the full 90 minutes, can be proud of his achievement all the same: he leaves London with an Olympic silver medal.
