Tokyo Olympics LIVE RESULTS: GB go in 4x100m relay this morning as Brit swimmer Pardoe elbowed in eye in race – updates

TEAM GB have high expectations going into Day 12 in Tokyo.

In sailing Hannah Mills became the most decorated female sailor in Olympic history as she won a gold medal with parter Eilidh McIntyre in the 470.

Skateboarding starlet Sky Brown has clinched skateboarding BRONZE at the age of only 13, while Frazer Clarke and Ben Whittaker picked up bronze and silver, respectively, in the boxing.

In doing so, the California-based British star has become our youngest ever medallist at a Games.

She had become the youngest Brit to even COMPETE at a summer Games, surpassing by 15 days the record held by swimmer Margery Hinton from the 1928 Games.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson started her heptathlon event brilliant in the 110m hurdles but slowly deteriorated before pulling out with an Achilles injury.

Team GB's women have been thumped by the Dutch in their hockey semi-final as the 2016 silver medalists won 5-1, exacting revenge for their Rio final defeat five years ago.

Meanwhile Jason Kenny has the chance to go for another gold medal in the men's track sprint.

    It's the men's turn in the skateboarding park in Tokyo.

    There are four heats where skaters get three attempts to show off their best skills.

    Then if they qualify for the final they get the chance to do it all again for a medal later on.

    "It wasn't really what I expected from the start, it started fast from the front.

    "I started to panic when I was behind, I could see that any chance of top five was over, I was just trying to secure a top ten finish.

    "The last lap I took an elbow to the face, I thought I'd lost the eye, my goggles came off completely.

    "I like to think whenever I was going to get an injury I was going to finish the race but my goggles completely fell off and I couldn't get them.

    "I thought my eye had fallen out in the water.

    "I was going up to the life guard saying 'my eye, my eye' and they weren't giving me a very decisive opinion.

    "I've just got a big stitch, that when I get back to the village they'll stitch up for me."

    Britain's Hector Pardoe had a nightmare in the men's open water marathon swim.

    He was elbowed in the chops and BBC's Nick Hope snapped him walking back towards the medical tent with an ice pack against his chin.

    Not quite where you'd expect in a swimming event but believe it or not punches aren't uncommon in these events.

    Florian Wellbrock of Germany has won the men's marathon swim ahead of Hungary’s Kristof Rasovszky.

    It was a classy swim from the 23-year-old from Bremen, who pretty much obliterated the entire field with two laps to go and led from the front, setting a brutal pace.

    Rasovsky held on to silver after being closed down in a late surge from Italy's Gregorio Paltrinieri.

    As with the women's race yesterday, the men had to contend with 30C temperatures in the water, one degree warmer and the officials would have had to abandon the race on safety grounds.

    Meanwhile Britain's Hector Pardoe dropped out of the race after being elbowed in the face during the melee for positions.

    The women are underway in round two of four of the golf.

    Swedens Madelene Sagstrom, pictured, and India's Aditi Ashok have got the ball rolling in the first pairing at Kasumigaseki Country Club.

    They lead ahead of USA’s Nelly Korda and Denmark’s Nanna Madsen going into the second 18.

    A long way to go in this one, but a contest to keep an eye on.

      Uzbekistan's Bakhodir Jalolov will fight a familiar face in the final of the Tokyo 2020 super-heavyweight boxing final, writes JOHN HUTCHINSON.

      His opponent on Sunday will be 22-year-old Richard Torrez Jr – a man he brutally knocked out three years at the AIBA World Boxing Championships.

      The very fact that it happened drew a fair bit of criticism – Jalolov had already turned professional then, fighting six times and winning all by KO.

      What resulted was Torrez, one of the smallest boxer's in this summer's super-heavyweight division, being laid flat on his back after a brutal beatdown.

      The American was carried out on a stretcher and had to be checked over by medical staff.

      Team GB ace Ben Whittaker is still struggling to enjoy his silver medal, after defeat in the men’s light heavyweight final to Cuba’s Arlen Lopez following a split decision, as he wanted the gold.

      Whittaker said: “No boxer wants to receive a silver medal, every boxer wants gold and I am one of those.

      "I woke up this morning truly believing this was my time. I had the whole of the West Midlands behind me and Great Britain.

      "I feel like a failure, so I didn’t want to celebrate silver at that time and I don’t think I can just yet. When I look back in a few years, it will probably be a great achievement but right now I don’t feel like it.

      “I feel like the right man won. He was a lot better than I thought, he is a two-time gold medallist for a reason.

      “It shows what level he is at and I can remember watching him in 2014 or 2015. I never thought I would get the chance to fight him and I did and it was a pleasure but I am just so upset.

      “It is very strange because idols turn to rivals. I would not say I was in awe of him but I respected him. And then I am in the right with him. It was a weird one but he is a fantastic boxer and hopefully one day I get to see him again”

      Team GB star Hannah Mills became the most successful female Olympic sailor of all time as she won 470 gold alongside Eilidh McIntyre.

      Mills said: "It’s been one of the hardest weeks of my life.

      "I’m sure for Eilidh as well, just every day, not being able to eat, just nerves building up, the emotion of just we’ve done it. It’s over. We’ve done what we came here to do and it’s amazing.

      "Growing up, a lot of Olympians dreamed of being here one day and standing on top of the podium. And to do it twice with Saskia [Clark] before and Eilidh this time, I’ve had two incredible crews to sail with and I just feel incredibly lucky.

      "The team around us here have been phenomenal. Big shout out to The National Lottery and everyone who plays the lottery because without you guys, we wouldn’t be here either. The support back home has been unreal so thank you everyone"

      Belarus' Krystsina Tsimanouskaya has left Tokyo en route to Europe after resisting an attempt by her Olympic team's officials to send her home to Belarus after removing her from the Olympic Games.

      Tsimanouskaya said she could be in danger from authorities who have relentlessly cracked down on dissent.

      The 24-year-old boarded a flight to Vienna for Poland, where she has been granted asylum.

      Before leaving Japan, the sprinter said she hoped she could carry on with her career but that safety was her top priority.

      Several countries offered to help after she sought refuge in the European Union, and Poland has granted her a humanitarian visa.

      The 200m runner's stint at the Tokyo Games became an international issue after she accused Belarusian team officials of hustling her to the airport several days ago and trying to put her on a plane back home because she had criticised the team's management on social media.

      Tsimanouskaya told the Associated Press that the team officials "made it clear that, upon return home, I would definitely face some form of punishment.

      "There were also thinly disguised hints that more would await me"

      Team GB rider Tom Maher has yet to fully believe he's won a gold medal in the men's showjumping.

      Canada's Andre de Grasse describes his Olympic triumph as a sign he's come a long way after his recent injury hell.

      De Grasse won the gold in the men's 200m final in Tokyo.

      He told the BBC: "I've been through so much these last five years on and off the track.

      "In 2016 I was a kid and inexperienced but now I have so many expectations to come away with medals and I wanted to show the world all my injuries are behind me and I can bring home a gold medal."

      Team GB rider Ben Maher praised his horse Explosion W after his gold medal triumph.

      Maher told the BBC: "The horse is like lightning, the second and third jump weren't as fast as I wanted them to be and then I took a big risk across the middle and normally Explosion and I we read each others mind, we're very in sync and he did question me in the middle.

      "I felt a slight hesitation but he can do that, he grew wings, that's what sets him apart from the other horses.

      "Little bit of luck is always involved but it was incredible.

      "I'm getting married in a couple of weeks and that makes this all the more special – but my fiance knows she has to share me with Explosion"
