BREAKING NEWS - Rio 2016: Silver for Phelps as Schooling makes history


Michael Phelps tasted defeat in a final for the first time at Rio 2016 as Singapore's Joseph Schooling produced a superb performance to win gold in the men's 100 metre butterfly on Friday.

Already the most decorated Olympian in history by a distance, Phelps again made history on Thursday when a sensational 200m individual medley triumph saw him become the first swimmer to win the same individual event on four occasions.

However, the 31-year-old was unable to follow up his 2004, 2008 and 2012 triumphs in the 100m fly, instead finishing in a remarkable three-way tie for second with world champion Chad Le Clos and Laszlo Cseh, three-quarters of a second adrift of Schooling's Olympic record time of 50.39 seconds.

Schooling becomes Singapore's first Olympic gold medallist, having surged to victory in style.
