TEAM GB added two golds, two silvers and three bronzes on a triumphant Day 14 of the Tokyo Games.

Laura Muir took home the silver in the 1500 metres and the women's team featuring Dina Asher-Smith won bronze in the 4x100m relay.

The men's 4x100m relay team missed out on gold by 0.01 SECONDS as Italy charged home on the line.

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

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

Today we're back at the pool as Tom Daley goes for diving gold in the 10m, before the final round of athletic events in the track and field.

    BRIT MARATHON TIMES

    There were no medals for Team GB in the women's marathon, although three athletes did cross the line.

    Steph Davis finished in 39th with a time of 2:36.33, while Steph Twell was the 70th woman to complete the event in 2:44.56.

    Just behind Twell was Jess Piasecki in 71st with a time of 2:45.13.

    Superb effort!

    Fellow Kenyan Brigid Kosgei has taken the silver medal, while USA's Molly Seidel has picked up a bronze.

    No medals for Team GB just yet!

    WHERE CAN THE MEDALS BE WON?

    Here's what's up for grabs on Day 15…

    WHAT'S COMING UP?

    Day 15 has already started with the women's marathon!

    GREAT KATE

    Kate French secured yet another gold medal for Team GB on Friday after winning the modern pentathlon event in Tokyo.

    The 30-year-old stormed to victory and is now an Olympic, World and European champion.

    Quite the CV!

  • Thomas Blow

    DINA DOES IT

    It's been difficult Olympics for Team GB's Dina Asher-Smith after injury denied her a shot at the 100m and 200m medals.

    But the 25-year-old starred alongside Asha Philip, Daryll Neita and Imani-Lara Lansiquot to win a bronze medal in the women's 4x100m relay.

  • Thomas Blow

    LAURA THE LEGEND

    Laura Kenny won her FIFTH Olympic gold medal riding alongside Katie Archibald in the women's madison earlier today.

    The 29-year-old is Britain's most decorated female Olympian and needs two more medals to equal her husband Jason's tally of eight.

    And there's every chance Kenny could be part of Team GB's track cycling squad for the Games in Paris in three years.

    Archibald, meanwhile, now has two gold medals after winning the team pursuit in Rio five years ago.

  • Thomas Blow

    MUIR GLORY

    Team GB's Laura Muir produced a personal best performance to win the silver medal in the women's 1500m earlier today.

    It was the 28-year-old's first Olympic medal, adding to the European title she won in 2018.

    THE WEEKEND AWAITS

    As Tokyo sleeps, attentions here turn to what awaits us on Saturday, day 15 of these 2020 Olympic Games.

    Medals galore are up for grabs including on the track where the finals of the Men's 1500m, the Women's 10000m and both 4 x 400m relays will take place. On the field, there's the Men's Javelin and the Women's High Jump.

    Team GB's best hopes of a gold medal perhaps lie with Galal Yafai, who faces up to Carlo Paalam of the Philippines in the final of the Men's Flyweight Boxing.

    Ethan Hayter and Oliver Wood pair up for the Men's Madison, hoping to replicate the success of Laura Kenny and Katie Archibald. On a similar note, both Jamie Cook and Joe Choong represent Team GB in the Men's Modern Pentathlon with Katie French's triumph fresh in mind.

    Elsewhere, the United States will be hoping for a double in the Men's Baseball and Basketball, taking on hosts Japan and France respectively in the two finals – and France are in another final, the Men's Handball, in which they will play Denmark.

    And if football's your thing, Brazil and Spain compete for the gold medal in the final of the Men's game.

    It's going to be some day.

    MEDAL TABLE

    At the end of a momentous Day 14, Team GB have moved into fourth position in the Olympic table with 18 gold medals.

    One of those was claimed by Kate French, who won the Modern Pentathlon with a sensational showing in the laser run, while Laura Kenny and Katie Archibald cycled their way to first place in the Women's Madison.

    In doing so, Kenny also became Great Britain's most successful female athlete of all time with five gold medals, as well as becoming the first British female to win gold at three different Olympic Games.

    Team GB were so close to bagging another gold but were agonisingly edged out on the line by Italy in the Men's 4 x 100m relay.

    Arguably, the most emotional medal of the day went to Laura Muir, who finally ended up on the Olympic podium after ten years of near misses when claiming silver in the Women's 1500m.

    ALEKSA, SHOW ME A WORLDIE

    Poland's Aleksandra Miroslaw set a new world record as she claimed gold in the Women's speed climbing earlier today.

    The 27-year-old stormed to the summit of the 15m wall in just 6.84 seconds to take 12-hundredths of a second off the previous best.

    In doing so, Miroslaw also saw off the challenge of her nearest rival, Anouck Jaubert, beating the French climber – who stumbled at the last – by two clear seconds.

    YOU'VE GOT TO HAND IT TO THEM

    France will take on the Russian Olympic Committee in the final of the Women's Handball on Sunday after both countries successfully came through their semi-finals earlier today.

    The ROC fought off a spirited Norway comeback to prevail 27-26 while the French edged out Sweden 29-27.

    Sunday's showpiece will begin at 3pm BST.

    CANADA KICK IT…

    …and take gold as Sweden pay the penalty.

    After a dreadful shootout in which seven spotkicks were missed, Juila Grosso converts in sudden death to seal a 3-2 win for the Canadians.

    Swedish captain Caroline Seger earlier had the opportunity to seal victory for her country, but blasted her penalty high over the crossbar.

  • Sam Dymond

    SHOOTOUT FOR GOLD!

    Had enough of penalties this summer? Tough.

    The whistle has just gone at the end of extra-time so Sweden and Canada will take penalty kicks to decide who will become the Olympic Women's Football champions.

  • Sam Dymond

    JAV IT!

    Earlier in the Tokyo evening, Shiying Liu of China won gold in the Women's Javelin.

    The Chinese athlete took first place with a throw of 66.34m. Poland's Maria Andrejczyk grabbed silver while Kelsey-Lee Barber of Australia came in third to land bronze.

    RELAY RUNNERS UNITED

    Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake apologised for seeming ungrateful with a second-place finish after being pipped on the line by Italy's Filippo Tortu, but insisted he just wanted to prove that the British team are the best in the world.

    Teammate Richard Kilty quickly leapt to the defence of Mitchell-Blake. With an arm around his colleague, he was adamant that the runner had absolutely nothing to apologise for and is a vital part of Great Britain's relay team.

    This man ran an amazing leg. He looked a bit disappointed, but this is a team. He’s been part of the top three fastest teams we’ve ever had, and he brought us home in incredible style.

    TEAM SPIRIT

    Great Britain's two relay teams – the women's and the men's – are celebrating their respective bronze and silver medals together out on the track (along with Laura Muir), but Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake is struggling to hold back the tears after he was edged out on the line.

    The last leg runner is being consoled by his teammates as he contemplates what might have been, but when the dust settles he will realise that he was an important part of a fantastic team run.

  • Sam Dymond

    ITALIANS EDGE IT

    What an Olympics for Italy! What a sporting summer for Italy!

    A sensational final 100m from Filippo Tortu wins it for the Italians, who beat Great Britain to the line by one-hundredth of a second.

    Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake took the baton from Richard Kilty for the last leg with Team GB in the lead, but it ends in agonising despair.

    Nevertheless, it was a great run from the chaps, and they should be proud of their silver medal.

    Canada follow up to finish third with favourites Jamaica nowhere, victims of poor changeovers.

    OVER TO THE MEN

    Can Jamaica make it a double with gold in the Men's 4 x 100m final?

    There's no Usain Bolt this time, of course, but the Jamaicans are still a fine outfit and are worthy favourites.

    They will face a challenge from Italy, Canada, China and Great Britain.

  • Sam Dymond

    JAMAICA CELEBRATE

    The Jamaican team soared through the legs to cross the line in first place, well ahead of their rivals – but there are now also suggestions that one of their runners may have stepped out of their lane.

    However, those concerns are not enough to stop the Jamaican sprinters from celebrating their gold medal, won on Jamaican Independence Day.

    In truth, it was a very messy final. The choreographed entrances were much more impressive.

  • Sam Dymond

    CLOSE CALL

    Team GB recovered from a dubious first leg exchange to finish in third position…

    …but there's an anxious wait to see if the pass over from Asha Philip to Imani Lansiquot was within the yellow marker.

    Slow-motion replays indicate they may just be okay, and now the girls are finally celebrating their bronze medal.
