Good night

Good night, good morning, whatever it is where you are, that's us signing off for the end of day one.

See you all on Sunday! 

Day one final medal table

No sign of GB yet...

Medal table


Brazil 5-1 Sweden

An emphatic win for the hosts. 


Venus out?

US tennis coach Mary Joe Fernandez reveals that Venus Williams may be struggling to play on in the Olympics because of illness.

"She's not feeling well. She's been ill for quite a few days. Two days prior to coming here she was really sick with a bad virus. You could probably see she was coughing up a lot. She did everything possible to try and win this match. She got dehydrated. She's cramping a bit and is getting sick to her stomach.

"Now it's just a question of trying to recover and see if she can hydrate and feel better for tomorrow. I'd be highly surprised if she didn't play because this has been her goal for the last four years to come back to her fifth Olympics. She wants to win a medal so badly in anything. Knowing Venus she will be out there no matter how bad she is feeling."

Unstoppable object

Adam Peaty is a man on a mission. A mission to win gold.

Repeat today's semi-final win in Sunday's final and it's mission accomplished.


Brazil 5-1 Sweden

Utter silence as Sweden grab a consolation. Clinically put away by Lotta Schelin - who has the look of Jill Scott about her - as she beats the offside trap to bury left-footed.

That's goals in three Olympics for her though. 


Brazil 5-0 Sweden

Five! Beatriz rolls her defender on the edge of the area and just clips in a left-footed curler. Delightful. 

'More in the tank'

GB swimmer Adam Peaty, who won his 100m breaststroke semi-final, told BBC One: "It didn't really feel like an Olympic semi-final. I feel like there's more in the tank but I want to save myself for that and hopefully cash out tomorrow.

"It is great. It is tough Ross Murdoch didn't make it through because it would have been great to have two GB boys through but I will do my best and show what I am all about.

"It is tough coming from the heats with a WR and replicating that tonight so I'll rest ahead of tomorrow."

Adam Peaty


Brazil 4-0 Sweden

Brazil's women are not having any problems tonight, they are 4-0 up against Sweden with just six minutes to go. The unstoppable Marta has a brace. 

Too hot to handle

Katinka Hosszu finally claimed her first Olympic medal - and set a world record for good measure.

All hail the Hungarian.

Five-time Olympic swimmer Mark Foster: On the first day you see some that have not travelled well but you can see the Australians have brought their A-game.

'More than a feeling' by Boston plays out as the pool empties into the Rio night. It's gone half 11 in Brazil, a late finish but a standard one for the duration of these Games. 

World Record - Australia

Women's 4x100m relay

There it is! 3:30.65 for Australia as Cate Campbell anchors it home with a 51.97 leg.

United States have silver and Canada have bronze.


Women's 4x100m relay

It's going to be Australia. And it's going to be a world record...


Women's 4x100m relay

Bronte Campbell to Cate Campbell. The sisters powering Australia into the lead...


Women's 4x100m relay

We are inside world record pace. The United States still ahead, Australia in their wake. Menacing. 

.@adam_peaty untouchable at the moment. Another stunning race. Going for @massivemel for coach of the year @ SPOTY. #early #brave

'Happy and disappointed'

Women's 400m individual medley

Hannah Miley just missed out on a medal in the medley. By a finger-tip. And her history of near misses in Olympic Games continues.

Here's her reaction.


Women's 4x100m relay

We're away! The USA know they need to break Australia early if they are to stand any chance and Simone Manuel has gone out flying.

She hands over in first, Australia five hundredths of a second back...

'A huge fan of Adam Peaty'

Former 100m breaststroke champion Adrian Moorhouse, speaking on BBC One: "It was a great swim, it wasn't perfection but I am impressed. I am a huge fan of Adam Peaty."


Women's 4x100m relay

Australia have four of the best 10 swimmers in the world in their team. All to do to beat them.

Another world record on the cards?

Time to rest up

Rebecca Adlington

Double Olympic gold-medal winning swimmer on BBC One

What a swim from Adam Peaty. Now he'll just want to get back to the village and get nice and rested for tomorrow's final.


The perfect 10?

If Adam Peaty does win gold on Sunday, he would be only the 10th man from Great Britain to win gold at the Olympics.

They are John Jarvis in both the 100m Freestyle and 400m Freestyle in 1900, Henry Taylor in both the 400m and 1500m Freestyle in 1908, Frederick Holman in the 200m Breaststroke in 1908, 4x100m Freestyle Relay in 1908, David Wilkie in the 200m Breaststroke in 1976, Duncan Goodhew in the 100m Breaststroke in 1980, Adrian Moorhouse in the 100m Breaststroke in 1988.


Hottest of favourites

Adam Peaty's 100m breaststroke semi - totally dominant once again - no world record this time, but hottest of favourites for gold tomoz

Coming up

Women's 4x100m relay

The last medal of the night/morning will come in the pool, as the women's 4x100m freestyle relay gets off at 03:24 BST.

No Team GB participation, so will it be gold for world record holders Australia or the United States?

We shall see...

Swimming - Peaty wins

Men's 100m breaststroke

It's just the second fastest time ever as Adam Peaty wins his semi in a time of 57.62 seconds.

Swimming - Peaty away

Men's 100m breaststroke

Men's 100m breaststroke

Five-time Olympic swimmer Mark Foster: "After the turn Ross Murdoch was grabbing and snatching. He just revved it."


Men's 100m breaststroke

Ross Murdoch, speaking to BBC One: "It was pretty rough, that race. I'll need to go back and have a think what went wrong. You start slipping water and it costs you."

Here they come for semi number two. 


Men's 100m breaststroke

Steve Parry

Olympic bronze medal swimmer

I don't understand that at all. Ross Murdoch has gone slower than this morning. He seems to have changed his game plan to me. He looked to be really snatching at the end there.


Men's 100m breaststroke

Ross Murdoch clocked a time of 1:00.05. 

Swimming - Murdoch sixth

Men's 100m breaststroke

That will not be enough for Ross Murdoch to go through. He finishes sixth in the semi as Yasuhiro Kosecki of Japan wins in 59.23 seconds. 


Men's 100m breaststroke

Ross Murdoch's reaction time was the best of the eight, nothing in it after 25m.

Ross Murdoch goes for the final. And they're off!
