Cindy Ofili  just missed out on a 100m hurdles medal, finishing fourth, with sister Tiffany Porter in seventh place.

Great Britain are through to the Olympic women's hockey final for the first time ever.

They surpassed bronze medal successes, at Barcelona 24 years ago and London 2012, by beating semi-final opponents New Zealand 3-0 thanks to an Alex Danson double and Helen Richardson-Walsh's penalty strike. Holland, looking to seal a hat-trick of Games titles, await in Friday's final.

The 29-year-old got out well and was well ahead on the home straight before easing off and even sharing a chuckle with Andre De Grasse as the pair crossed the line.
