Tokyo Olympics LIVE RESULTS: Dina Asher-Smith in action, Team GB win TWO relay golds in swimming and triathlon – updates

TEAM GB are at it again – and there's another Super Saturday brewing.

Adam Peaty put in another terrific performance as Team GB took gold in the 4x100m mixed medley, smashing the world record in the process.

It was already a golden morning for the Brits in relay events, with the mixed triathlon relay getting things off to the perfect start.

Jess Learmonth, Jonny Brownlee, Georgia Taylor-Brown and Alex Yee were on sublime form to thrash the field in a thrilling race and take gold.

Dina Asher-Smith goes in the 100m semi finals later on, with South Wales boxing sensation Katliss Artinstall also on the medal hunt.

And a third medal of the day has come in the windsurfing, with 22-year-old Emma Wilson taking the bronze.

Britain's rugby sevens women couldn't land a medal though after losing to Fiji in the bronze medal match.

    McCORMACK REACTS

    Team GB boxer Luke McCormack had no complaints after his loss to Cuba's Andy Cruz.

    McCormack said: “I gave everything but he was really tough.

    “I’d have preferred to meet him in a medal fight because he should win.

    “But now I’ll stay and cheer on my brother for gold”

    McCORMACK OUT

    Here's the report on Luke McCormack's elimination by SunSport's Martin Lipton from Tokyo:

    Luke McCormack’s Olympic train ran off the rails as he was out-thought by Cuban Andy Cruz.

    Lightweight McCormack, whose twin brother Pat remains on course for welterweight glory, struggled to get to grips with the two-time world champion.

    McCormack knew he could not afford a headlong charge against “El Matador” in a tough last 16 contest and despite seeming to hold his own he lost the first with all five judges.

    But a lightning jab kept snaking out to tag the Sunderland fighter, and when the Cuban also took the second more comfortably he was on….Cruz control despite the screams of McCormack's GB team-mates in the corner of the Kokugikan Arena.

    It meant McCormack had to find a way to stop the Cuban – and it proved hard enough to even hit him.

    McCormack knew his time was up at the bell and the 5-0 verdict in favour of Cruz was a formality

    YAFAI THROUGH

    Here's SunSport's Martin Lipton reporting Team GB's boxer Galal Yafai's win from Tokyo:

    Galal Yafai continued GB’s winning ring streak to reach the last eight – but admitted he was nowhere near good enough.

    Flyweight Yafai, 28, edged past Patrick Chinyemba of Zambia to set up a showdown with former world champion Yosmany Veitia of cuba on Tuesday.

    Brummie Yafai, the third of three boxing brothers including 2008 Olympian and WBA super-flyweight champion Khalid, squeaked out a 3-2 majority verdict by a single point from the Cuban judge.

    Bizarrely, the Argentine official gave the slippery and elusive Chinyemba, who boxed entirely on the retreat, the second round despite taking a standing count.

    Yafai admitted: “It was a nightmare.

    “I have to step it up on Tuesday, one million per cent. If I box like that again I don't deserve a medal, do I?”

    "COURAGEOUS" BILES

    British Athletes Commission Chair Vicki Aggar praised Team USA's Simone Biles' decision to prioritise her mental health over the Olympics.

    Aggar said: "The phrase ‘defining moment’ – in a sporting context – usually refers to performances which will be remembered for years or even decades, and inspire generations to come. What Simone Biles choose to do at Tokyo’s Ariake Gymnastics Centre this week ticks those boxes and more.

    "For a long time sport, like society, has not treated mental health with the respect and importance that it deserves. Whilst there has been ample focus and investment on getting athletes back to health after a physical injury, for decades, mental wellbeing has been at best misunderstood, and at worst, ignored.

    "There’s no doubt now, that things are changing. While some of the more general reaction to Simone Biles’ withdrawal illustrates the progress still to be made in society’s understanding of mental health issues, it was incredibly heartening to see the universal support that her decision attracted from her fellow athletes.

    "These athletes – for the most part, of Simone’s generation – have grown up surrounded by a more progressive attitude to mental health, and are involved in an elite sport system which, while still being some way short of perfect, has genuinely now begun to invest in its athletes as people, rather than sporting commodities.

    "Like us at the British Athletes Commission, many of Biles’ peers see this as a potentially seminal moment in sport. For one of the highest-profile names at an Olympic Games to, whilst in the running for a fifth career gold medal, put her mental health first is a huge statement.

    "Her courage can now ensure that the conversation can move on even further; that athletes can feel more comfortable speaking out about such issues; that decisionmakers within sport will find it impossible not to factor in mental health considerations when building an environment for training or competition.

    "For all Simone Biles’ countless extraordinary achievements, pushing forward the conversation on mental health and providing a courageous and unprecedented example to current and future athletes around the world, may just turn out to be her most important"
