Team GB has a dramatic tumble in the road race and all the important Olympic things you missed while you were sleeping


It's only day one of the competition at the 2016 Olympics, and a medal has already evaded Great Britain.

But it's OK - while the Olympic road race had a brutal finish and poor Geraint Thomas came crashing down, we've had some seriously great moments in the pool.

Here's all the action from across Rio on day one that you might have missed while you were sleeping - and should probably catch up on.

Britain's hopes of road race glory evaporated.

Yep, with just 10 kilometres to go of the 237.5km road race, Geraint Thomas tumbled off his bike and on to the road. Luckily, he didn't have to be taken to hospital but everyone on Twitter just felt really sorry for him - including team mate Chris Froome.

In the end, Greg van Avermaet of Belgium won gold, with Froome having to settle for 12th place. Oh dear.

Adam Peaty smashed his own world record.

Making us feel rather lazy on a Sunday morning, 21-year-old Adam Peaty has not only qualified for the final of the 100 metres breaststroke, but while doing so, he also set the second fastest time in history - 57.62 seconds - in his semi-final. That was after setting a new mark of 57.55 seconds in the heats.

Now we've all got a good feeling about a gold medal from Adam...and if he does win in the breaststroke final, it will be the first Olympic gold for a British male swimmer since Adrian Moorhouse in 1988.

Another swimmer got the closest yet on Team GB to a medal...but all some people could tweet about was Miley Cyrus.

Hannah Miley really was SO CLOSE to a bronze medal - she was edged out by just 0.15s in the 400m individual medley.

But, as we mentioned, when people saw Hannah Miley trending on Twitter it just led to a whole load of Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus jokes. Of course.

Paddy Barnes caused a bit of a Twitter storm.

The Irish boxer cheekily took this snap alongside Rory McIlroy's former fiancee Caroline Wozniacki.

Oh, and ICYMI, you need to check out this Twitter account.

There's a slightly weird rumour that's been doing the rounds in Rio the last couple of days concerning their infamous waters...

It involves a kayak, a submerged sofa and a collision. Yep, apparently, an unknown kayaker capsized during training after crashing into a stray bit of furniture.

And the whole thing has blown up so much that there's now a twitter account for Rio Kayak Sofa.

Only at the Olympics.
