Egypt’s silver medallist Alaaeldin Abouelkassem apologised to fans after the team lost to Great Britain in the Men’s Team Foul round of 16 on Sunday.
Britain knocked out Egypt with a 45-33 win, denying Abouelkassem the chance to collect a second medal after he won the silver in the men’s individual foil last week.
“I’m sorry guys you were better than me today, I won’t give excuses, but I promise to keep training and working hard to deserve your support,” Abouelkassem said on Twitter.
Abouelkassem is the only Egyptian athlete to have a won medal at the London Games so far.
He clinched the silver after beating China's Sheng Leii 15-13 in the final of the men’s individual foil.
