  • BILES OUT

    Gymnastics superstar Simone Biles has withdrawn from Monday's floor final at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, writes CHISANGA MALATA.

    The Team USA ace withdrew from the women's team final and all-around final earlier this week after posting her lowest Olympic vault score in the opening rotation.

    Biles, who has been struggling with her mental health during the tournament, then opted not to compete in the vault and uneven finals. 

    And the 24-year-old has decided against taking part in the floor final.

    A USA Gymnastics tweet read: "Simone has withdrawn from the event final for floor and will make a decision on beam later this week.

    "Either way, we’re all behind you, Simone."

    Irozuru produced a season's best of 6.75m.

    And Sawyers progressed with a jump of 6.62m.

    Irozuru said: "It is extra special to be here at this very weird Olympic Games.

    "This has literally been the highlight of my whole Olympic experience so far so I'm loving it.

    "It was a nice confidence boost to get a season's best, to finally jump over 6.70 this season, and to hit the automatic qualifying because that's what I came here to do. 

    "There is more to come, there's things that I've been working on and I'm starting to execute as I'm building through the rounds, so hopefully with six rounds in the final it will come."

  • CLARKE VS ALIEV

    Frenchman Aliev has been warned time and time again to avoid head clashes.

    But he continued to bump heads with Fraser, and the referee has disqualified Aliev!

    The Frenchman is showing his nasty side, throwing fits and kicks, and Fraser tries to calm him down.

    Not the type of behaviour you'd expect at the Olympics.

    Ronald McIntosh ơn BBC commentary: "Aliev is docked a point and he's outraged. The contest has been called off - there's a disqualification. Frazer Clarke is guaranteed a medal.

    "Aliev is incensed. The question is will the GB boxing staff be able to heal the cuts.

    "Those cuts came from head clashes and Aliev had been warned."

  • CLARKE VS ALIEV

    A good opening round by Team GB's Frazer Clarke in this 91kg quarter-final bout.

    His opponent Frenchman Mourad Aliev has, however, managed to catch Clarke and inflict a cut on the Brit's eyebrow.

    In the gold, American Xander Schauffele is leading the pack - he's at 17 under par.

    Team GB's Paul Casey and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama are 14 under par.

    And Ireland's Rory McIlroy is a shot further back on 13 under after eight holes.

    Medals are up for grabs!

  • FINAL FOUR

    Germany are into the semi-finals of the men's hockey after beating reigning Olympic champions Argentina 3-1.

    Revenge is a dish best served cold, and the Germans get revenge after being beaten by the Argentines back at the 2016 Rio Games.

    Great Britain face India in the quarter-finals later today.

  • WHITTAKER SPEAKS

    Olympic finalist Ben Whittaker gave his reaction to BBC Sport.

    He said: "Yesterday and the day before I had so many messages telling me the Russian guy [Imam Khataev] would knock me out. I think I put on a masterclass.

    "I woke up this morning, I prayed to God, I saw all the messages from home - nobody was beating me.

    "Everyone who's getting up early doors, I really appreciate it. When I am fighting I'm doing it all for you, and not myself."

  • RICK TAKER: WHITTAKER WINS

    Team GB’s Ben Whittaker has a chance to win gold in the light heavyweight division!

  • SEVEN HEAVEN

    Australia's Emma McKeon finishes with 7 medals at the Tokyo Olympics! Unbelievable.

  • RISK TAKER

    Team GB's Ben Whittaker is taking on Imam Khataev of the Russian Olympic Committee in the boxing.

    A place in the final is at stake.

    Whittaker as cool as you like, puts in a good first round of boxing - using his lead left hand terrifically.

  • BOOZE BAN

    Tokyo chief Toshiro Muto has confirmed that some athletes have broken the rules, throwing a party involving alcohol inside the Olympic Village in the early hours of Saturday morning.

    Drinking alcohol is banned at the Olympics.

    He said: "incident at the Olympic Village in the early morning of 31 July.

    "Athletes and members of delegation were at the park within the village and they were drinking alcohol - we are aware of this fact. 

    "We are investigating the situation and based on the result, we will take appropriate action”

  • WORTH IT

    Team GB's Charlotte Worthington picked up GOLD in the women’s BMX park freestyle!

    Here's the moment she collected her gold medal.

  • FLYING KYE

    Almost two decades of hard work and sacrifice paid off for Tracey Hill and Nigel Whyte as they watched their son Kye soar through the skies of Tokyo to claim silver in his first Olympic Games, writes JOSHUA MBU.

    Hill, alongside family and friends, cheered BMX star Kye on from his home track in Burgess Park in the early hours of Friday morning.

    Kye got off to a good start flying out of gate four, holding his own in the middle of the pack and keeping pace with eventual winner Niek Kimmann.

    The Brit closed the gap in the third straight setting up a grandstand finish, but was pipped to gold by a bike’s length.

    And as her youngest son crossed the finish line – becoming Great Britain’s first-ever medallist in the sport - Hill recollected all of the sleepless nights of sleeping in cars to make sure her boys Kye, Tre and Daniel could race on the weekends. But insists it was all worth it. 

    Hill told SunSport: “BMX is not a cheap sport, but it's a sport that they wanted to do and it was something that me and Nigel turned around and said 'if this is what you want to do, we will work towards getting you there' and it was not easy.

    "We have slept in cars, having the boys get to a national and we can't afford to get a hotel.

    "So we've asked people to hide them and we've slept in the car, and things like that, you know. 

    "It's sacrifices that parents make for their kids at the end of the day. And it's all been well, well worth it now. Especially now."

  • BILES UPDATE

    American superstar Simone Biles will NOT defend her Olympic gold on the floor this week.

    As a result of Biles dropping out of the final, Team GB's Jennifer Gadirova will replace her in Monday's event.

    It has not yet been confirmed if Biles will perform on the beam, where she is scheduled to go in Tuesday's final.

    The USA team have already confirmed she would missed the vault and uneven bars due to mental health reasons.
