Tokyo 2020 Olympics LIVE with Max Whitlock to feature in pommel horse final

Overnight, Duncan Scott became the first British athlete to win four medals at a single Olympics as Team GB took silver in the 4x100m medley.

This accompanies the Scot's gold in the men's 4×200 metres relay and silvers in the 200m freestyle and 200m individual medley.

Elsewhere, Charlotte Worthington won gold for Great Britain in the first Olympic women's BMX freestyle competition, before Declan Brooks followed up with bronze in the men's event moments later.

The double success meant Britain have taken a medal in all four BMX events at these Games after the racing gold and silver for Beth Shriever and Kye Whyte.

And Paul Casey and Rory McIlroy entered a seven-way play-off for the bronze medal as American Xander Schauffele took gold at Kasumigaseki Country Club.

Both, however, narrowly missed out.

Team GB’s Frazer Clark guaranteed a boxing medal

Frazer Clark is guaranteed at least a bronze medal in Tokyo after his quarter-final opponent, Mourad Aliev, was disqualified for excessive use of the head.

Aliev staged a sit-down protest after the referee's verdict before eventually losing his temper, kicking his mouthguard across the ring and gesticulating angrily.

Clarke's guaranteed medal means that Tokyo 2020 will see Team GB match their London 2012 haul of five boxing medals.

Charlotte Worthington wins BMX gold

Team GB’s swim team makes history

Team GB's swim team made history today at their most successful ever Olympic Games.

The medley team won a silver medal in the last swim of Tokyo 2020, beaten by a world record time for the US of 3:26:78 to our 3:27:51. Italy took bronze.

Duncan Scott, 24, became our most decorated athlete at a single Games with a record fourth medal – making it one gold and three silver for the flying Scot.

Full story here.

McIlroy misses out on bronze

All five remaining players parred the short 10th hole, although all had realistic birdie opportunities.

They moved on to the par-four 11th – the third extra hole – with no immediate sign of the bronze medal winner being decided.

Morikawa, though, then made a major move, hitting his second shot to within inches of the pin to pile pressure on his rivals.

And it proved too much for McIlroy, who failed to hole a birdie chance and bowed out, along with Sebastian Munoz and Mito Pereira.

It left Morikawa and CT Pan to tee off at the fourth extra hole with the latter taking the medal.


Hello and welcome to yet another day at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

There were a few more medals overnight and more hopefuls today so don't go anywhere!
