Live Blog

LET THE GAMES BEGIN

WE'RE underway on another enthralling day at Tokyo 2020 - and Team GB are back on the medal hunt.

Jonny Brownlee is currently going for glory in the triathlon before Adam Peaty defends his gold medal in the 100m breaststroke.

Yesterday Andy Murray and Jade Jones' gold medal defences came to an end on a tough Day 2 for the Brits.

Murray dropped a bombshell by withdrawing from his tennis singles title defence just hours before he was set to face Felix Auger Aliassime.

Jones meanwhile fell at the first hurdle to Kimia Alizadeh of the Refugee team.

And Team GB women's hockey went down to Germany 2-1 in a close fought opening match of their title defence.

  • SWIMMING UPDATE

    The competitors have reached the first turn.

    As it stands, Diego Moya of Chile is currently in the lead.

    Team GB's Jonny Brownlee has started well whereas Alex Yee is further back

  • TRIATHLON UNDERWAY!

    Team GB'S Jonny Brownlee and Alex Yee are set for action in the Tokyo 2020's triathlon.

    There was a false start after one of the boats filming was in the way while the divers went in.

    That was very dangerous as the boat nearly reversed into the competitors that had begun swimming.

    But the swimming then kicks off properly!

  • WEATHER CONDITIONS

    There is a chance the triathletes will be hit hard by the effects of Storm Nepartak and its 55mph winds.

    This would effect them most in the 1.5km swim in Tokyo Bay and the 40km bike leg.

    Organising committee spokesperson Takaya Masa said: “Unlike an earthquake, we’re able to predict the path of a typhoon so we’re able to prepare in advance.

    “In the case of rowing, as a preventative measure, we have decided to change the event schedule. Changing the schedule is not a rare event and we understand the burden it’ll have on athletes.

    “We’re looking closely at the path of the typhoon to make decisions as preventative measures.

    “Should it make land, there could be damage and if that’s going to be the case, we will take responsible measures.

    “At this point in time I cannot offer you exactly what will happen, but we will be paying a close eye to it”

  • JON THE CLUB

    Alistair Brownlee admits he will be very nervous watching his younger brother Jonny compete in the Tokyo Olympics' triathlon.

    The elder Brownlee is not in Japan having failed to qualify for a third straight Olympic Games and had left ankle surgery five weeks ago.

    Alistair said: “I’ll be really nervous — but also looking forward to watching him.

    “Jonny has a really good chance. He is fit, in great shape, done all the prep he can to the best of his abilities.

    “It’s fair to say he is not going in as a favourite like the last two Games but the race is wide open.

    “There are no favourites this time. I know Jonny has prepared for it very diligently and couldn’t have done anymore than he has”

  • DOMINO EFFECT

    Indian weightlifter Mirabai Chanu has earned free Domino's pizzas FOR LIFE after her 2020 Olympics heroics.

    Chanu came second in the 49kg women’s weightlifting category and marked an end to India’s nearly two-decade-long wait for a medal in the division.

    After her impressive achievement, the 26-year-old expressed her desire to eat pizza following her strict diet in preparation for the Tokyo Olympics.

    Domino’s India caught wind of Chanu's statement and found a special way to express their gratitude to the popular athlete.

    They took to social media and promised the Olympian free pizzas indefinitely.

  • AMAZING DUET

    Manchester United duo Eric Bailly and Amad Diallo helped the Ivory Coast snatch a point against Brazil.

    The match ended with a goalless draw that saw Aston Villa ace Douglas Luiz getting sent off.

    The Africans then lost Eboue Kouassi to a red card close to full-time.

    Both Luiz and Kouassi won’t be able to play in their teams’ final group matches
