Olympics catch-up: Adam Peaty's gold glory and all the important things you missed from day two at Rio


There was a lot of excitement on day two of the 2016 Olympics as Great Britain claimed its first two medals in the space of 10 minutes - thanks to a gold for Adam Peaty and silver for Jazz Carlin in the pool.

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

Adam Peaty broke his own world record to win Team GB's first gold.

The swimmer broke the record in the heats of the 100m breaststroke with a time of 57.55 seconds and was just 0.07 seconds slower in the semi-final.

Then the 21-year-old from Uttoxeter lowered his own record to 57.13s to clinch the first Olympic gold for a British male swimmer since Adrian Moorhouse in 1988.

His nan Mavis Williams had the best reaction ever and went on to become the internet's new hero:

That's one proud grandma.

Jazz Carlin picked up a silver in the 400m freestyle in the pool.

Carlin was the second-fastest qualifier in the women's 400m freestyle, albeit more than four seconds adrift of American Katie Ledecky - who set a new Olympic record in winning her heat and broke her own world record with a time of three minutes 56.46 seconds in the final.

Carlin took silver ahead of Ledecky's team-mate Leah Smith and did everyone proud:

Let's hope the medal-winning streak continues for Team GB.

Richard Kruse's hopes of securing a medal were dashed by a Russian fencer.

The British fencer earlier saw his bid to become Britain's first medallist dashed by Russia's Timur Safin in their bronze medal play-off in the men's foil.

Kruse did his best as he staged a spectacular comeback from 12-5 down to move within two points of victory, only for Safin to complete a 15-13 win just seconds into the final period.

Although it seems the internet appeared to be more obsessed with what Kruse was wearing than his fencing skills:

The Murray brothers crashed out of the doubles, but Andy's medal hopes still live on.

Andy Murray launched the defence of his Olympic title with a 6-3 6-2 win over Viktor Troicki.

But unfortunately the Wimbledon champion and brother Jamie later crashed out of the doubles in the first round, the second seeds losing two tie-breaks - the second 16-14 - to Brazil's Andre Sa and Thomaz Bellucci.

Shortly after, Judy Murray posted this cryptic tweet (we aren't sure why):

And if you're feeling a bit gutted about the doubles, maybe this throwback photo will cheer you up a little:

Other tennis shocks included the Williams sisters' and Novak Djokovic's defeats.

In a rather unexpected turn of events, Serena and Venus lost for the first time in an Olympics doubles match to Czech Republic's Lucie Safarova and Barbora Strycova 6-3 6-4, while Djokovic admitted his shock first-round defeat, 7-6 (7/4) 7-6 (7/2) to Juan Martin Del Potro, was "one of the toughest losses in my life".

Things were a bit disappointing in the women's road race for Team GB.

Lizzie Armitstead's week of turmoil ended in disappointment as she could only finish fifth in a dramatic women's road race which saw the Netherlands' Annemiek van Vleuten suffer a nasty crash when leading with less than 11km to go.

Van Vleuten spent Sunday evening in intensive care in hospital with concussion and three fractures to her lower back.

And finally, Kosovo won its first ever Olympic medal (and a gold one at that).

Majlinda Kelmendi made history for her country as she became Kosovo's first ever Olympic medallist.

With the nation making its Olympic debut in Rio, it was a tearful Kelmendi who took to the podium after beating Italian Odette Giuffrida to gold in the 52kg judo division.

It was also an emotional moment for fans:

The 25-year-old's victory was the culmination of a long struggle to represent her country - which declared independence from Serbia in 2008.
