TEAM GB are off to a cracking start on day 15 as Galal Yafai became the country's latest Olympic champion.

The flyweight boxer beat Filipino Carlo Paalam via split decision in their bout and managed GB a boxing gold for the fourth successive Olympics.

Elsewhere, Tom Daley goes for Gold again from 7am in his men's 10m platform final.

Yesterday, 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.

      Team USA are up against France in the gold medal match in Tokyo right now.

      USA have plenty of star-power on the court but they lost their first game of these Games to France, so they'll be out for revenge.

      Gregg Popovich's team are currently sitting pretty with a 12-point lead at 38-26, but France have proven themselves to be a resilient side.

      Stay tuned to see if Kevin Durant can bag a third consecutive Olympic gold medal.
