World and Olympic champion Lin Dan of China lost his All England title on Friday night, downed in a major upset 21-16 18-21 21-17 by sixth-seeded compatriot Bao Chunlai in the quarter-finals.

Lin has contested the last six All England Badminton finals, winning four of them, but had no answer to his fellow left-hander.
Seeded two - behind Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia, who now looks clear favourite to land his first All England title after his rival's exit - Lin looked to be on his way to victory in the decider when he led 11-7 but a losing run of six points in succession turned the tables.
A confident Bao raced to 20-15 with some stunning winners and although Lin saved two match points, a smash down the line that was just out handed victory to his opponent.
Lin had been making his seasonal debut in the tournament after missing the first two Super Series of the year but has looked in good shape.
"Bao was playing really well today but I was okay too. I thought I had a chance," he said.

Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei beat Sony Dwi of Indonesia on Thursday to become the first player to book their place in the quarter-finals of the men's singles at the All-England Open.

The world No 1 from Malaysia came through 21-11, 21-17 against the Indonesian, a dangerous former winner of Olympic bronze and world silver medals who made an intriguing fight of the second game.

Lee's athletic and carefully crafted victory took him within two wins of another possible meeting in the final with Lin Dan, whose triumph last year helped China to capture all five titles for the first time.

Lee said he was confident about the rest of the week. "I am getting better and better. The second set shows I have improved from yesterday," he said, referring to his slightly laboured first round win over Chetan Anand of India.
