Golf gets underway in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics with Tommy Fleetwood, Rory McIlroy and Bryson DeChambeau all competing for gold in Japan.

Taking place at the Kasumigaseki Country Club, the format - containing sixty golfers - will copy that used at Rio 2016, when Justin Rose won gold. Four days of stroke play will conclude on Saturday.

Elsewhere, the men's swimming 100m freestyle final is set to take place as well as the women's all-round individual in gymnastics.

Simone Biles was due to be the event's main attraction but the American withdrew to focus on her mental health. She will potentially return for the individual events next week.

Good morning!

Welcome to Mirror Sport's coverage from day six of the Tokyo Olympics.

There are 17 gold medals up for grabs today and Team GB's Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood are in action on the golf course.

Casey finished four under par to leave him joint-sixth, while Fleetwood is further down at two under with five holes remaining of his first round.

Stay tuned for all the latest updates from day six.

Helen Glover misses out on third straight gold

Despite just missing out on a third successive gold medal, Helen Glover made history as the first mother to compete in rowing for Great Britain at an Olympics.

She came in fourth in the women's pair with partner Polly Swann, and claimed after the race that "Had it been on flat water as we expected then we might have come through for that last place on the podium."

"I think for both of us this was about the journey here more than anything we have ever done before.

"When I think of the day to day grind and the urgency of the past year in getting here - I think how did we do that?"

Simone Biles not in action today

The legendary gymnast won't be in action today after withdrawing to "focus on my mental health."

Biles will hopefully return for the individual events next week.

Fleetwood excited

"I'm excited, just bubbling to get going with the Olympic experience," Fleetwood said.

"There's tonnes of different sports and a bunch of different athletes. Even though we all do something different, I'm guessing we all have a lot of things in common.

"There's no trepidation at all. I'm just really, really excited to get going and experience it and compete."


It's another day at the Tokyo Olympics and there's plenty in store.

We have the remainder of the canoe slalom women's final, Team GB in action in the hockey and the women's all-round individual in the gymnastics.

Oh...and the golf is back!
