Tokyo Olympics 2020 Day 5 LIVE RESULTS: Simone Biles latest, rowing SILVER for Team GB in quadruple sculls – latest

TEAM GB will be hoping the medal rush continues tonight, with the potential for plenty more golds on Day 5.

In the rowing, Great Britain have picked up a silver in the men’s quadruple sculls taking their total to 14!

But it was devastation for the Brits in the men’s coxless four, finishing in fourth place as they failed to win it for the first time since 1996.

And the rugby sevens team then take on New Zealand in a mouthwatering semi-final.

We then head to the pool with Tom Dean looking to make it two golds in two days as he takes part in the 4x200m freestyle relay.

Come 6am, Geraint Thomas will look to bounce back from a wretched road race to win gold in the time trial.

And we will have live coverage of the Olympic men’s football with some big names set to bow out in the group stage.

    Just one medal in the bag for Britain today on a painful session.

    The swimming freestyle relay is up at around 4.26am BST with Tom Dean and Duncan Scott set to feature with GB the favourite.

  • HOCKEY LATEST

    Defending champions GB struck when it mattered to beat India and take a huge step towards the hockey last eight.

    The Rio heroines lost their opener against Germany before bouncing back to beat South Africa.

    But after making a lightning start with a goal inside 75 seconds, GB were indebted to keeper Maddie Hinch before late strikes secured a 4-1 win.

    Hannah Martin was on the spot to prod over the line after Sarah Rayer diverted goalwards.

    And when Martin’s reverse stick effort went through the keeper to double the advantage it looked as if it might be a comfortable task.

    But India pulled one back through Sharmila Devi through a well-worked corner routine and Hinch made five clutch saves as the Indians pushed hard.

    Lily Owsley, though, lifted the ball into the net from Shona McCallum’s cross – India’s protests were in vain – before Grace Balsdon coolly converted a late penalty flick after Owsley’s shot was blocked on the line by an Indian body.    

    GB’s next task is 100 per cent group leaders Holland tomorrow.

  • SWIMMING – WOMEN’S 200m INDIVIDUAL MEDLEY UP NEXT

    Team GB will play for rugby sevens bronze after being outpowered and outplayed by New Zealand.

    The Rio silver medal winners could barely mount an attack as the Kiwis dominated to win 29-7 and now face Argentina (or Fiji) in the third-place match at 7.30am.

    GB were without crocked skipper Tom Mitchell for the defeat.
