Rio Olympics quarter-finalist shuttler K Srikanth has been ruled out of the upcoming European circuit due to an ankle injury that he sustained during the Japan Super Series last month.

“I don’t be taking part in the European circuit as I injured my right ankle during the Japan Open,” Srikanth wrote in his Instagram account along with a picture of his injured leg.

“Hope to recover very fast and comeback for China Open,” he added.

The European circuit includes two major tournaments — Denmark Open and French Open.

Srikanth had clinched the China Open in 2014 defeating legendary Lin Dan.
