Tokyo Olympics LIVE RESULTS: Dina Asher-Smith starring as GB go for gold on the track after cycling & pentathlon wins

TEAM GB have added two stunning golds, a silver and two bronzes so far on a triumphant Day 14 of the Tokyo Games.

Laura Muir took home the silver in the 1500 metres and we've got both men's and women's 4x100m relays coming up.

Laura Kenny bagged her historic FIFTH gold medal in the women's Madison alongside Katie Archibald, while Kate French won in the modern pentathlon.

Kenny's fifth gold sees the cycling star become the first British woman to win five Olympic golds.

It was also the first time a women's Madison race had taken place in the Olympics.

And the cycling medals did not stop there – Jack Carlin added a bronze in the men's sprint.

While in the women's hockey, Great Britain beat India 4-3 in a thrilling match to seal bronze.

GB had been 2-0 up before India fought back to go 3-2 ahead, but the Brits proved they were the best side by winning.

    MUIR LIKE IT

    The years of tough training has finally paid off for Laura Muir, who claimed an impressive silver medal in the 1500m behind double Olympic champion Faith Kipyegon.

    I’m overblown. I’ve worked so hard for so long.

    I’ve been fourth, fifth twice, sixth and seventh. With everything that’s happened in the last year and not knowing if it was going to go ahead, I’ve got a silver – and a British record as well.

    You’ve got to be as best prepared as possible for any situation. I trained as hard as I could and had no doubts that this was going to happen.

    LAURA KEEPS THE FAITH

    A superb performance from Faith Kipyegon, who wins gold for Kenya with a new Olympic record…

    …and a similarly wonderful run by Laura Muir.

    The British athlete showed pace, power and buckets of determination to push past Sifan Hassan on the final bend, going on to set a new national best.

    She is overcome by emotion at the finish line, and falls to the floor in tears of joy. Well done, Laura.

    FAITH KIPYEGON WINS GOLD!
    AND LAURA MUIR TAKES THE SILVER!

  • Sam Dymond

    THEY'RE OFF!

    The rainbow-haired Gabriela Debues-Stafford bursts to the front, quickly joined by Nozomi Tanaka of Japan.

    However, it's not long before the favourites, Faith Kipyegon and Sifan Hassan, move to lead the pack.

    Laura Muir takes note and moves quickly up to join the frontrunners…

    MUIR TO COME

    We move on to the Women's 1500m, and is this the best chance for Great Britain's Laura Muir to win an Olympic medal.

    The 28-year-old from Inverness isn't given much of a chance behind the favourites, Faith Kipyegon of Kenya and the Netherlands'
    Sifan Hassan, but she certainly has a bronze medal within her reach.

    MILLER TIME!

    Shaunae Miller-Uibo is a double Olympic champion!

    There were question marks over the reigning champion after a suspect semi-final run, but she has silenced those critics with a sensational performance here.

    The 27-year-old launched her attack in the third 100m to pull away from the pack, finishing with a new personal best of 48.36.

    Marileidy Paulino came in second to take the silver medal while Allyson Felix defied her 35 years to pick up the bronze; her tenth Olympic medal.

    SHAUNAE STORMS TO GOLD!
    IT'S A NEW PERSONAL BEST FOR MILLER-UIBO!

  • Sam Dymond

    A SHAUN THING?

    Next up is the Women's 400m where the odds-on favourite is Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas.

    Allyson Felix of the USA finished second to Miller-Uibo at Rio in 2016, but a repeat for the 35-year-old may be beyond her.

    Stephanie-Ann McPherson (Jamaica) and Marileidy Paulino (Dominican Republic) are certainly in with a shout of gold, but Jodie Williams of Team GB is a rank outsider.

    JOSHUA GLEE

    Joshua Cheptegei follows up on the disappointment of silver in the 10000m earlier in the week with the glory of gold in the 5000m.

    A brilliant run from the Ugandan saw him pull clear of the field in the final lap to finish first.

    Mohammed Ahmed of Canada came in second while the USA's Paul Chelimo threw himself over the line for bronze.

    GOLD FOR UGANDA!

    FINAL LAP

    Katir makes a move – but is it too late? It really looks like it.

    Cheptegei hits the front and he will take some catching…

  • Sam Dymond

    FOUR LAPS TO GO

    Kenya's Nicholas Kipkorir Kimeli leads the way, but favourite Mohamed Katir finds himself way back in the field and will surely have to make a move soon.

    Milkesa Mengesha is in second while the Ugandans, Joshua Cheptegei and Jacob Kiplimo, find themselves in third and sixth respectively.

    PACE YOURSELVES

    With a blast of the gun, the Men's 5000m final is underway!

    There's no Mo Farah anymore, but Team GB are represented by Andrew Butchart.

    Spain's Mohamed Katir is favourite to win gold, but the Ugandan pair of Joshua Cheptegei and Jacob Kiplimo are also considered strong contenders.

    FINALISTS CONFIRMED

    The second heat of the Men's 4 x 400m relay has just been run, and it saw Poland, Jamaica and Belgium secure their place in this afternoon's final.

    They'll be joined by the automatic qualifiers from the first heat – USA, Botswana and Trinidad and Tobago – as well as the two fastest losers, Italy and the Netherlands.

    All eight finalists ran their heats in under three minutes, and sets up what will be a superb spectacle inside the Olympic Stadium.

    HORSING AROUND

    Earlier today, Annika Schleu's hopes of a medal in the Modern Pentathlon were dashed by a horse more mischievous than Bojack Horseman.

    The German was in first place going into the riding discipline but her dream quickly began to unravel as Saint Boy refused to jump.

    DUTCH DELIGHT

    The Netherlands have won gold in the final of the Women's Hockey after defeating Argentina 3-1.

    Two goals from Caia van Maasakker and another from Margot van Geffen were enough for the dominant Dutch as they regained the title they won in London in 2012.

    HEAT TOO MUCH TO HANDLE

    Team GB will surely miss out on a place in this afternoon's final of the 4 x 400m Relay after finishing sixth in the first heat.

    The quartet of Cameron Chalmers, Lee Thompson, Joseph Brier and Michael Ohioze crossed the line a long way behind the front runners of USA, Botswana, and Trinidad and Tobago, who have all qualified automatically.

    KATE SHOOTS FOR THE STARS

    Kate French has gathered her breath ahead of her moment on the winner's podium, and has managed to say a few words on her startling achievement.

    I actually don’t know what to say, I can’t really believe it right now.

    I knew I could do it if I focused on my shooting and just ran as fast as I could.

    I could hear the team cheering me on in the stands, and I can’t thank everyone back home enough for all their support.

    FANTASTIC FRENCH

    Kate French is an Olympic champion!

    The 30-year-old modern pentathlete considered retirement after a fifth-placed finish at the Games in Rio five years ago, but she persisted, came back stronger, and has been rewarded with the gold medal.

    She absolutely blitzed the laser-run to finish 15 seconds ahead of Lithuania's Laura Asadauskaite in second place; Sarolta Kovacs of Hungary took the bronze.

    "It's the greatest performance of [Kate French's] life by far," remarks Nick Hope for BBC Sport.

    MODERN PENTATHLON

    The Modern Penthathlon compromises fencing, shooting, swimming, show-jumping and running.

    And Katie French comes out on top!

    She went into the final run 15 seconds off the lead but absolutely stormed home to secure Team GB's 18th gold medal of Tokyo 2020.

    GOLD MEDAL!

    HALF TIME IN THE HOCKEY

    It's all going on in the Women's gold medal match.

    Caia van Maasakker scored her second to make it 3-0 to the Netherlands, but Argentina have replied almost instantly through Agustina Gorzelany.

    It's Netherlands 3-1 Argentina at half time.

    STAT ATTACK

    How's this for a stat.

    Albie Morgan (Laura and Jason's son) has quite the number of medals to play with.

    TWO IN TWO MINUTES

    The Netherlands have scored two goals in quick succession in the gold medal match against Argentina in the Women's Hockey final.

    Caia van Maasakker has added to Margot van Geffen's opener.

    WOMEN'S FINAL

    The horn has just sounded for the end of the first quarter in the Women's Hockey gold medal match.

    It's currently 0-0 between the Netherlands and Argentina.

    Team GB bagged the bronze early this morning, beating India 4-3 in dramatic fashion after surrendering a two goal lead to trail 3-2 at half time.
