KATIE LEDECKY!!!!!!!!!!! BOOM AMERICA!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 THATS HOW WE DO IT!! @TeamUSA #Olympic CHAMPS

Gold Medal - United States

Women's 4x200m relay

Katie Ledecky has her third gold of the Games, and her fourth medal in total. United States win it, Australia second and Canada delighted with third!


Women's 4x200m relay

The nations have all mixed up their batting orders which has made this an interesting race. Katie Ledecky was 10m back but now she comes through...


Women's 4x200m relay

Australia, China, USA, Canada, Sweden. Katie Ledecky on the anchor leg could be the difference maker here...

Colombia up next for Brazil

Here's the quarter-final line-up after the conclusion of the group games in Olympics men's football:

Brazil v Colombia; Portugal v Germany; South Korea v Honduras; Nigeria v Denmark


Women's 4x200m freestyle

Sweden still lead at the conclusion of the first 200m leg, just outside world record pace now. But here come China and Australia...


Women's 4x200m freestyle

Michelle Coleman of Sweden leads the first leg, she is under the world record split after 50m. And 100m too...


Women's 4x200m freestyle

Katie Ledecky and Katinka Hosszu among the swimmers going for yet another medal here. Missy Franklin, 200m freestyle specialist, has been dropped. She's out of touch, out of time. 


Denmark 0-4 Brazil

It's all over in Salvador and Brazil are into the quarter-finals after a very impressive display against Denmark. 

Hard to believe, but Brazil have never won an Olympic gold. Could this be their year?

Wallace gets his reward

Men's 200m individual medley

Mark Foster

Former freestyle world swimming champion on BBC One

Dan Wallace is still only 23, he has another Olympic cycle in him, and it's great to hear that his love for swimming is back again because you need that to put the effort in.

Wallace enjoying his swimming again

Men's 200m individual medley

Dan Wallace after qualifying for the final tells BBC One: "Two months ago I didn't think this was possible but I knew I had it in there somewhere and it was nice to step up when it counts.

I've started to enjoy swimming again and days like last night and this night made it clear to me that I want to keep doing this as long as I can."

'I don't follow swimming'

Naivety, arrogance, just plain youth. Kyle Chalmers just blew the world away to win the 100m freestyle and he comes out with this:

"I'm someone who does not follow swimming too much. I follow basketball, football and soccer."

Adrian Moorhouse

1988 Olympic 100m breaststroke champion on BBC One

Lochte was working hard. I think he's going to struggle in the final. Pereira will have the support of the crowd to push him but Phelps goes in as the quickest.

'So stoked!'

Women's 200m buttterfly

She may have finished fourth to miss out on a medal, but there was no lacking in confidence for Cammile Adams:

"I looked into the mirror as I was putting on my make-up and said 'Cam you're amazing.

"My goggles broke just before the race but I'm so frigging stoked at doing that time."

Wallace in the final

Men's 200m IM

Dan Wallace is in the final - the fifth fastest qualifier. 


Denmark 0-4 Brazil

And we have a fourth for Brazil - Gabriel Barbosa bagging his second with a deflected finish. Neymar, by the way, has been superb. What a turnaround.

Phelps takes it

Men's 200m individual medley

Class proves permanent. Michael Phelps cruises home to win from Ryan Lochte, with Brazilian Thiago Pereira fourth and GB's Dan Wallace fourth! that should put him in the final.



Men's 200m individual medley

Thiago Pereira still leads as the crowd break out into a football chant! Tremendous noise. But here comes Michael Phelps.


Men's 200m individual medley

After 50m it's Brazilian Thiago Pereira ahead of the two big guns. Fast time too.


Men's 200m individual medley

Away they go, two legends of the pool side by side. 


Men's 200m individual medley

Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte have their headphones pulled hard over their heads. No chat. No engagement. 


Men's 200m individual medley

A time in the 1:58/59 bracket could get Brits Dan Wallace and Ieuan Lloyd into the final. possible?

Tutton through to final

Men's 200m IM

TOP swim from Kosuke Hagino, who wins it easily from Shun Wang and Philip Henitz. The second semi is stacked so how many of these will qualify? 


A majestic third

That is more the Brazil we know. Beautiful football, superstar Neymar lifts a clever ball into Douglas Santos' path who picks out Luan to smash home Brazil's third. Denmark 0-3 Brazil.

Brazil make it 3-0


Men's 200m IM

Kosuke Hagino ahead after 50m as the crowd get behind home man Henrique Rodrigues. Hagino supreme on the backstroke, leading by nearly a second. 

Fast time pleases Renshaw

Women's 200m breaststroke

Molly Renshaw after setting a British record in reaching the final: "My training has been going so well and it's nice to get a good time. 

"It's been a few years since we had British female breaststrokers at the top so to have two is amazing."

Men's 200m individual medley

So 50m butterfly, 50m backstroke, 50m breaststroke and 50m free.

A week's workout for you or I. A sub two-minute swim for these chaps...

Taylor McKeown belted that out from the beginning but you couldn't ask any more from Molly Renshaw. It was a wonderful swim from the Briton.
