Tokyo 2020 Olympics: Kenya’s Jepchirchir wins marathon, plus diving, boxing and more – live!

Diving: the semi-finals of the men’s 10m platform event have been concluded and it’s China who again hold the whip hand at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre.

Coa Yuan, the synchronised 10m platform silver medalist, and Yang Jian were the top two qualifiers and are the men to beat. But the Chinese will not want for competition, with Team GB’s Tom Daley (fourth in qualifying), Australia’s Cassiel Rousseau (sixth) and Team USA’s Jordan Windle (ninth) and Brandon Loschiavo (10th) all hoping to be medal chances.

Canoe sprint: the aforementioned women’s K4 500m final – did I mention Lisa Carrington could win a fourth Tokyo 2020 gold medal today? – is just one of four deciders to be staged on the Sea Forest Waterway today.

Australia will be one of New Zealand’s opponents in the women’s kayak event and the Australians are also paddling for gold in the men’s K4 500m final.
