A day after Magic Monday, there was more medal success for Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympics.
Tom Dean and Duncan Scott delivered gold and silver in the men’s 200m freestyle, the first British male one-two in the pool since 1908.
That came after Georgia Taylor-Brown secured a brilliant silver in the early morning triathlon, with the Mancunian looking right at home in the horrible conditions as a tropical storm swept into the Japanese capital.
Bianca Walkden then made sure of taekwondo bronze, before Britain’s women’s team gymnasts did the same.
There was disappointment for the hosts, though, as Naomi Osaka suffered a third-round exit at the hands of Marketa Vondrousova in the women’s tennis singles.
Here the PA news agency takes a look at day four’s action so far, and Britain’s further prospects.
What’s happened today so far?
Taylor-Brown overcame a flat tyre to take silver in the rain-soaked women’s triathlon, with the world champion making up three places in the 10-kilometre run to the finish. But there would be no catching Flora Duffy, who looked like the class of the field as she made made history by winning Bermuda’s first ever Olympic gold medal. Attention then turned to the pool when Dean and Smith finished strongly to celebrate a famous one-two.
Bianca Walkden suffered late heartbreak in the semi-finals of the women’s +67kg taekwondo category, losing with one second remaining, before bouncing back to make sure of bronze later.
Then Britain claimed a first women’s team gymnastics medal since 1928, with Alice Kinsella, Amelie Morgan and 16-year-old twins Jennifer and Jessica Gadirova landing bronze.
Eden Cheng and Lois Toulson finished seventh in the final of the women’s synchronised 10m platform diving, as did Evie Richards in the mountain bike race.
Great Britain suffered a 33-7 defeat to Olympic champions Fiji in their rugby sevens Pool B decider, although their ticket to the quarter-finals was already booked, and they came from 21-0 down to beat the USA 26-21 to reach the semis. Andy Murray and Joe Salisbury made the last eight in the men’s tennis doubles, while Liam Broady produced a stunning upset of seventh seed Hubert Hurkacz to reach the third round of the men’s singles.

What’s coming up?
Charlotte Dujardin will be bidding for a fourth Olympic gold – and fifth medal in total – when the team dressage final gets under way at Tokyo’s Equestrian Park, while GB’s women face Canada in their final group game of the competition, looking to secure top spot in Group E after already claiming a quarter-final place.
