Great Britain lost 3-1 to Spain in Davis Cup following Cameron Norrie's singles defeat to Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

The Spaniard, ranked number 21 in the world, needed three hours and 43 minutes to overcome an opponent ranked only 114.

Cameron Norrie's fearless effort was not enough to prevent Great Britain's defeat in the Davis Cup at the hands of Spain on Sunday.

Had Norrie been able to win it was expected that Kyle Edmund, fresh from his Australian Open semi-final run, would play the deciding match for GB.

Britain now face a play-off in September which they need to win to stay in the World Group in 2019.

"I can't speak highly enough of what Cam has done all weekend", he said.

"People might have thought it was a one-off what he produced on Friday, but he did it again today against another really high quality player". He pushed him really close and I'm really proud of him.

Ramos-Vinolas struggled early on but eventually prevailed against Norrie.

Yet he brilliantly took the second set, and was only denied the third set by another tie-break which had the Spanish fans relieved when Ramos-Vinolas edged ahead.

The Cup rookie, who had yet to play a professional match on clay, played for NZ up until 2013 after he and his family moved her from South Africa.
