Murrays, Edmund & Evans for Davis Cup semi-final

Davis Cup semi-final, GB v Argentina, 16-18 September

Great Britain captain Leon Smith has named his four-man team for this weekend's Davis Cup semi-final against Argentina and there is no place for doubles specialist Dom Inglot.

World number two Andy Murray leads the team and is joined by brother Jamie, fresh from winning the men's doubles title at the US Open, plus Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans. 

That makes it all but certain that the Murray brothers will partner each other in the doubles, with Andy playing all three days.

Don't forget, the tie in Glasgow is live across the BBC.

Rio Paralympics 2016

Elizabeth Hudson

BBC Sport's Paralympics reporter in Rio

For someone who only starting doing the 400m again this year and who is better known for her sprint prowess, that was a mightily impressive run in very hot conditions by Kadeena Cox.

Yes, world champion and world record holder Margarita Goncharova from Russia might have been absent, but you can only beat what is in front of you and Cox did it in style in a new world record.

She looked focused on the startline, got a good start and used her strength and power to get past China's Junfei Chen in the home straight.

There are those who had their doubts, but the Leeds woman is now a history-maker after becoming the first British athlete to win two gold medals in two sports at one Games in 32 years.

Cox targets history

Rio Paralympics 2016

Elizabeth Hudson

BBC Sport's Paralympics reporter in Rio

Can Kadeena Cox win her second gold medal in a second sport at Rio 2016? We'll find out shortly as her T38 400m final gets underway at 15:17 BST.

The 25-year-old had a stroke in 2014 which led to her being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and while she has always been a talented athlete, cycling formed part of her recovery.

Already she has won 500m gold in the velodrome and is aiming to become the first Briton to win two golds in two different sports in the same Games since Isabel Barr in 1984.

Barr, later Newstead, achieved the feat in swimming and shooting at the Stoke Mandeville Games.

But Paralympic sport nowadays is a tougher proposition.

American visually-impaired sprinter David Brown goes in the semi-finals of the 200m T11 event in the morning session, hoping to make it a double after his 100m win earlier in the programme.

But the 23-year-old also has another talent - for writing poetry - and wants to put his words to music after he gets home from Rio.

"Some of them are love poems," he said. "They go to special ones. I write about myself, what's going on with me, what I'm doing. Every once in a while I will publish a poem and let other people read it.

"As soon as I get back from Rio, I do music and make beats as well, I'm actually going to invest in getting a microphone and putting my poetry to my music. It's going to be more like raps and songs and stuff like that. I hope people will hear it a lot more."

GB swimmers coast through

Rio Paralympics 2016

Plenty of action in the pool this afternoon - and plenty of GB swimmers into tonight's finals.

Claire Cashmore (SB8 100m breaststroke), Jon Fox and Michael Jones (both S7 400m freestyle) won their heats.

Scott Quinn set a Paralympic record as he beat team-mate and world record holder Aaron Moore in their SB14 100m breaststroke heat - both them are through.

The rivalry between Bethany Firth and Jessica-Jane Applegate continued as Firth won their SB14 100m breatstroke heat. Applegate's fourth place is unlikely to see her through.

And Stephen Clegg came second in his S12 100m backstroke heat to progress.

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson anxiously watched her protege Jade Jones in action in the T54 5000m heats.

"I feel so nervous watching her race because there's nothing I can do," she said as the 20-year-old finished a disappointing seventh and she must wait to see if she gets through as a fastest loser.

American Tatyana McFadden led from gun to tape as she chases her third gold in Rio.
