Tokyo 2020 Olympics: cycling, diving, women’s 200m final and more – live!

Today promises to be a big day for Team GB, with a possible eight golds on offer and a surge up the medal table in the offing.

Two could come at the velodrome, with Jason and Laura Kenny going for a first double gold bid in the women’s and men’s pursuit finals. If Laura wins she will have five Olympic golds to her name, and this would be her third team pursuit gold in a row; if Jason wins he will have a seventh Olympic gold to pull clear of British great Chris Hoy.

Two medals won just two hours apart – and all on Olympic debut for #TeamGB

A dream day for @TomMcEwen1 with individual silver and team gold alongside @Oliver_Townend and @CollettEventing #Tokyo2020

Women’s long jump final: the cream is rising to the top at the Olympic Stadium. USA’s Brittney Reece is getting better as the session progresses and after three jumps she is showing the way with a jump of 6.97m.

Nigeria’s Ese Brume has also jumped 6.97m but presently sits second on countback. Germany’s Malaika Mihambo, considered Reece’s main threat in this event, is in bronze medal position but Team GB’s Jazmin Sawyers (6.74m), Abigail Irozuru (6.27m), Australia’s Brooke Stratton (6.83m) and USA’s Tara Davis (6.84m) will want to get a wriggle on if they are to push for a medal.
