Tokyo Olympics LIVE - Team GB seek further medals as rowers go for glory

We have reached day five of the Tokyo Olympics and there will be plenty to keep an eye on with 23 medal events taking place.

Team GB will take to the water for the first time for the rowing, with Sholto Carnegie, Oliver Cook, Rory Gibbs and Matthew Rossiter looking to do their nation proud in the men's coxless four.

And with the women also in action in the coxless pair, coxless four, quadruple sculls and more, it is certainly a day to turn your attentions towards the Sea Forest Waterway.

Elsewhere, road cycling returns for the men's and women's time trials, with Geraint Thomas hoping to recover from the crash he suffered on Saturday.

And Charlotte Dujardin will hope for more glory in the dressage as she attempts to become the first British woman to win gold at three Olympics.

With all that plus much more, follow all the action from Japan right here...

Gymnast Simone Biles opens up on having therapy

Simone Biles tearfully described how she pulled out of the USA team because "doing what I love has been kind of taken away from me".

Biles, the world's best gymnast of her generation, suffered a crisis of confidence after misjudging her opening vault, scoring 13.766.

Although the 24-year-old returned, she put on her tracksuit and did not compete again as the Americans finished second, with Team GB taking a surprise bronze.

Speaking afterwards, Biles told how she had been having therapy amid struggles over the last year, but everything had come to a head in Tokyo.

"With the year that it's been, I'm really not surprised that it played out," she said.

"I just don't trust myself as much as I used to, and I don't know if it's age - I'm a little bit more nervous when I do gymnastics.

"I feel like I'm also not having as much fun and I know that this Olympic Games, I wanted it to be for myself.

"I came in and I felt like I was still doing it for other people, so that just hurts my heart." She added that "doing what I love has been kind of taken away from me."
