Tokyo Olympics Day 6 LIVE RESULTS: Simone Biles latest, Rory McIlroy makes flying start in golf, GB narrowly miss out

THE Tokyo Olympics are rolling on at pace as we head into Day 6.

But rower Helen Glover could not add to Team GB's haul in the women's pairs alongside Polly Swann, coming up just short in her quest for a remarkable medal.

Glover, 35, had retired after winning this event for the second time at the 2016 Olympics and had three children with husband TV presenter Steve had.

She has trained for Tokyo on two hours sleep a night while raising her three kids.

And the golf gets underway - with Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood in action for Britain.

  • SECOND SEMI-FINAL

    And now it's time for Team GB's Abbie Wood's semi-final.

    Tatiana Schoenmaker of South Africa is hot favourite for this one.

    Here we go, the Women's 200m breaststroke semi-final is about to begin!

  • THIRD PLACE FINISH

    Molly Renshaw ends the semi-final in third place.

    That's enough to qualify for the final but she might be slightly disappointed after leading at the halfway stage.

    South Africa's Kaylene Corbett finishes first with a time of 2:22:08 from the USA's Lilly King in second who clocks in a time of 2:22:27.

  • BREASTSTROKE SEMI FINAL

    Team GB's Molly Renshaw is currently FIRST place at the halfway stage, leading Lily King.

    This is a brilliant swim so far!

    She's halfway to a favourable lane in the final!

  • MOLLY RENSHAW IN ACTION

    Team GB's Molly Renshaw will be swimming in lane three in this semi-final of the Women's 200m breaststroke.

    Here we go!

  • ROWING HEARTBREAK

    The Rowing events, usually so successful for Team GB, have been a real source of heartbreak so far at Tokyo 2020.

    As reported earlier Emily Craig and Imogen Grant missed out on a medal by 0.01secs in the lightweight women's double sculls, and Helen Glover could make it three Olympic golds in three consecutive games after a fourth placed finish in the Women's doubles with Polly Swann.

    It means Team GB have finished an agonising fourth in five rowing events, with the only medal so far being a silver in the men's quadruple sculls.

    Team GB were the leading rowing nation at Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016 but so far have not enjoyed their usual success on the water.

  • RUGBY SEVENS

    Captain Abbie Brown rescued GB from rugby sevens humiliation as she stole victory over Russia in added time.

    GB were on the brink of plunging to a shock defeat when Kristina seredina blasted through a huge gap and bounced off Emma Uren to put Russia 12-7 up with a minute to go.

    But the Russians were penalised for delaying the restart, giving GB one last chance.

    And with the clock ticking, Brown seized her chance, turning on the afterburners firm 40 yards out to touch down under the posts 15 seconds after the seventh minute had elapsed.

    Holly Aitchison converted to win the game but GB will have to make a huge improvement against New Zealand later.
