Dan Walker and Sam Quek guide you through a busy morning as British athletes seek to rule the waves in sailing and put the brakes on their rivals in the cycling velodrome.

Laura Muir, Laura Weightman and Eilish McColgan have all registered global top 10 finishes since the previous Olympics, but the athlete to beat – if she opts to compete over the distance – may well be current world 1,500m and 10,000m champion Sifan Hassan.

The men’s badminton singles – won by the Chinese at the last three Olympics – also reaches its climax, along with the showjumping element of the team and individual eventing competitions.

Clare Balding and Alex Scott introduce the stories that made the headlines on a day when 22 Olympic titles were decided across nine sports.
