    Team GB Olympic hero Adam Peaty has revealed he will take a break from swimming.

    Peaty has won two gold medals at Tokyo 2020 and is going to take a break for several months to protect his mental health.

    He said: "You’ll see people who are falling off, who go all the way through ISL [International Swimming League] and all the way through World Cups and by the time they get to Paris.

    "You’re seeing it in all sports now. You’re seeing it with Simone Biles, you’re seeing it with Ben Stokes, mental health matters and it is about getting the balance right at that elite level.

    "The amount of time that has been taken away from me with my partner and my boy - he doesn’t know it - but I want to make that time up. I’m going to enjoy it and recover."


    Gymnast Max Whitlock has thanked his supporters after the Team GB star retained his pommel horse crown.

    The 28-year-old now has three golds at the Olympics, boasting six medals in total.

    In terms of Brits, only Bradley Wiggins (eight), Chris Hoy (seven) and Jason Kenny (seven) have more Olympic medals than Whitlock.


    Team GB super-heavyweight Boxer Frazer Clarke is into the semi-finals after his French Mourad Aliev opponent was disqualified for excessive use of his head.

    Multiple head clashes between the fighters saw Clarke bleeding above both eyes, with the 26-year-old Frenchman eventually disqualified.

    Aliev sat inside the ring for half an hour after the bout in protest against the decision.

    He said: "I sat down to protest against the unfairness for me.

    "I prepared for these Games for four years. I really wanted to fight against the injustice, so that was my way to show that I don't agree with that decision."


    Seeing the reaction of some competitors after winning gold at Tokyo 2020 is one of the best parts of the Olympics.


    Team GB's return of EIGHT Swimming medals at Tokyo 2020 is the most Great Britain have ever won at an Olympics.

    Four golds, three silvers and a bronze medal for Team GB in the pool is a sensational achievement considering Great Britain didn't win a single Swimming gold at London 2012.


    Zharnel Hughes reacts after his false start in the 100m final resulted in him being disqualified.

    And this is what Whitlock had to say immediately after winning gold:

    "That's the biggest routine I've competed, the risk was very high and I can't believe it has paid off," he said.

    "The pressure was on as the first man up. I usually have three different options of routines, this time I was just all-in.

    "This was the most nervous I've been for any competition I've ever done.

    "Retaining titles is ten times harder than chasing, today was a million times harder.

    "You know you've done it before, you want that feeling again. You watch all the medals flowing in for Team GB, you can relate to it and know your time is coming up."


    A message from Olympic pommel horse champion Max Whitlock after his gold medal this morning:

    "I can't believe what's just happened, thank you everybody.

    "It's been an incredible journey [for] Team GB [and] everybody.

    "So grateful to have that moment with Scott [his coach] on the floor with me.

    "[I] cannot believe I'm coming home with a gold medal.

    "Thank you so much for everybody's support, it means the world."


    Italian high jumper Gianmarco Tamberi suffered an achilles injury in the build up to Rio 2016 that prevented him from competing.

    He kept the cast from that injury to motivate him in training for Tokyo 2020, and that motivation has paid off.


    Here's a look at the updated medal standings.

    China still lead the way from the USA and Japan, with Australia having an excellent Games to currently lie in fourth place.
