Glasgow-based Gilmour, the second seed, was unable to impose herself on the third seed at the Emirates Arena and had to settle for silver as she went down 21-14 21-6.

The match, between the players ranked 17th and 19th in the world, was expected to be evenly contested but it proved anything but as Gilmour was outplayed.

The 20-year-old Scot slumped to the ground after losing the final point - handing Canada a first gold in women's singles - after 38 minutes.
