The Scot expects to be in action for the first time since winning Wimbledon for a second time last month, as he gets the defence of his Olympic men's singles title under way with a first-round encounter against Serbia's Viktor Troicki on Sunday.

He could also play alongside brother Jamie against Brazilian pair Thomaz Bellucci and Andre Sa in the men's doubles.

Lizzie Armitstead

Armitstead claimed Britain's first medal at London 2012 by winning silver and she will hope to put a turbulent week behind her by going one better in Rio in the women's road race, which gets under way at 4:15pm BST.
