Tokyo Olympics LIVE: Follow all the latest from 2020 Games


THE medal rush has continued for Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympics!

Tom Dean and Duncan Scott won GOLD and SILVER for GB in the Men’s swimming 200m freestyle final in an incredible race.

While Georgia Taylor-Brown kicked off Day 4 of the Olympics with a stunning silver medal for Britain in the triathlon.

Manchester’s Taylor-Brown suffered a flat tyre on the final lap of the bike and fought back in stunning style to emulate Alex Yee’s heroics from Monday.

Team GB now have 10 medals in the bag after they truly got up and running on Magic Monday, with Adam Peaty storming to gold in the 100m breaststroke, before Tom Daley and Matty Lee followed suit in the 10m diving.

And things weren’t done there, with Tom Pidcock romping to victory in the men’s mountain biking after a dominant performance.

  • SWIMMING – MEN’S 200m FREESTYLE FINAL

    That was the first time since 1908 Britain went 1-2 in an Olympic race!

    What a race, and what a display from Tom Dean and Duncan Scott!

    Gold AND Silver right there. Phenomenal.

  • SWIMMING – MEN’S 200m FREESTYLE FINAL

    Tom Dean with an incredible final lap!

    It’s GOLD and SILVER for Great Britain!

    Incredible, absolutely incredible!

    Dean wins with Duncan Scott in second.

  • SWIMMING – MEN’S 200m FREESTYLE FINAL

    Out come the athletes for the final!

    All eyes on Tom Dean and Duncan Scott as we get underway.

    Here we go!

  • SWIMMING – WOMEN’S 200m FREESTYLE SEMI-FINAL

    Ariarne Titmus finishes first and progresses to the final.

    There was no repeat of this from her coach Dean Boxall just now…but we’re holding our hopes up for the final.

  • WALK IN THE PARK?

    Bianca Walkden goes for gold in the taekwondo later on this morning from 6.30am BST when she has her quarter-final.

  • RUGBY SEVENS

    The result means Team GB now face the runners up in Group C, likely to be USA, in their last eight clash at 10am BST and would then be on collision course with New Zealand in the semis…

  • RUGBY 33-7s

    Shellshocked GB were blitzed again by Rio nemesis Fiji as their 2016 revenge hopes were smashed into bits.

    Skipper Tom Mitchell and Co were looking for a win in their final group match to clinch top spot and an easier quarter-final tomorrow.

    But instead they had no answer to the South Sea islanders, who bounced back to form after a ropey day one with an uncompromising and devastating display as they battered the Brits 33-7.

    And GB must also look at themselves as they paid the price for  a series of painful errors.

  • MURRAY IN ACTION

    And that’s not all over the next thrilling couple of hours, not by a long shot.

    Andy Murray is in doubles action with Joe Salisbury against the German team of Kevin Krawietz and Tim Putz.

    That one gets underway at 3am BST.

  • SWIMMING 200m FREESTYLE FINAL

    In just under one hour’s time at 2.42am BST, Duncan Scott and Tom Dean feature for Britain in the Men’s 200m swimming freestyle final.

    Will GB’s medal flurry continue?

  • TRIATHLON – TAYLOR-BROWN WINS SILVER

    Manchester’s Taylor-Brown poses with her silver medal alongside bronze medallist Katie Zaferes from United States, and Bermuda’s historic gold medallist Flora Duffy.

  • ‘THE FIRST LAP WAS PANIC MODE’

    Georgia Taylor-Brown told BBC Sport after her phenomenal silver: “I got a puncture coming out of the park with about 2k to come and I panicked – I didn’t know what to do so I just rode on the flat.

    “I lost maybe 15 seconds on the group. The first lap of the run was panic mode. I think I definitely paid for it the latter part of the run but it paid off.”

  • TRIATHLON – TAYLOR-BROWN WINS SILVER

    That performance now takes Great Britain’s medal tally so far up to EIGHT on a cracking start to Day 4.

    They are GOLD:

    • Adam Peaty – Men’s 100m breaststroke
    • Tom Daley and Matty Lee – Men’s 10m platform diving
    • Tom Pidcock – Men’s mountain biking

    SILVER:

    • Bradley Sinden – Men’s 68kg Taekwondo
    • Alex Yee – Men’s Triathlon

    BRONZE:

    • Chelsie Giles – Women’s 52kg Judo
  • TRIATHLON – DUFFY WINS

    Flora Duffy of Bermuda crosses the line first.

    Manchester’s Georgia Taylor-Brown comes through in SECOND and Britain win silver!

    Incredible performance after that flat tyre. Remarkable display.

  • TRIATHLON – RUN LAP 4/4

    Taylor-Brown has now pulled clear of Zaferes. This is looking like another silver for Britain!

    And what an incredible silver medal to kick off day 4!

    The Brit fought back after a flat tyre during the final bike lap.

  • TRIATHLON – RUN LAP 4/4

    Duffy just starting her final lap and is way out in front!

    She’s 1min 7sec seconds in front…

    But now Taylor-Brown has overtaken Zaferes into second place!

  • TRIATHLON – RUN LAP 3/4

    Georgia Taylor-Brown has fought back to third place after suffering a flat tyre on the final lap of the bike.

    This will be an absolutely incredible medal if she can pull it off.

  • TRIATHLON – RUN LAP 2/4

    47, yes 47 seconds the lead for Flora Duffy!

    Taylor-Brown chasing down Zaferes in second.

    Duffy is not showing any signs of slowing down…

  • TRIATHLON – RUN LAP 2/4

    Second-placed Katie Zaferes now in Taylor-Brown’s sights!

    This has been an incredible recovery from the Brit.

    But Bermuda’s Flora Duffy is pulling away in front. The gap seemingly widening on every step.

    5km to go…

  • TRIATHLON – RUN FIRST LAP

    But what a run it has been for Taylor-Brown!

    She’s overtaken team-mate Learmonth and is up to THIRD.

    After that flat tyre, can she do it?

  • TRIATHLON – TRANSITION

    The leading pack are off and Learmonth is in fourth.

    Taylor-Brown is in fifth as she finally gets off the damaged bike.

    It will be heroic triumph now if she wins.

  • TRIATHLON – BIKE FINAL LAP

    Heartbreak for Georgia Taylor-Brown!

    She’s got a flat tyre on the final lap and has fallen right back from the leading pack.

  • TRIATHLON – BIKE LAP 6/8

    Two Brits – Taylor-Brown and Learmouth currently 3rd AND 4th in the breakaway group!

    We head into the penultimate lap of the cycling before the transition.

    All eyes on rain-lashed Tokyo…

  • ANOTHER CHANGE AT THE TOP

    Bermuda’s Duffy is now out in front.

    She is closely followed by Germany’s Laura Lindemann.

    Taylor-Brown is third with Learmonth fourth.

    Just two laps left to go on two wheels.

  • BACK IN FRONT

    Learmonth has retaken the lead!

    But she is just in front of Taylor-Brown.

    Both are looking in great shape with just 15km left of the bike ride.
