6.25pm: Chris Walker-Hebborn is third in his 100m backstroke heat in 53.54, the tenth-fastest time overall which puts him safely through to tonight’s semi-finals.

6.50pm: Brilliant swim from Jazz Carlin to win her 400m freestyle heat in a new personal best time of 4:02.83 and progress to tonight’s final at 3:01am BST as the second-fastest swimmer overall.
7.10pm: Confirmation that GB women’s rugby sevens will face Fiji in the quarter-finals at 10pm BST. Good luck to Amy Wilson Hardy and Natasha Hunt!
10.20pm: a 26-7 win over Fiji puts the Team GB women’s rugby sevens team into tomorrow’s semi-finals, meaning they will definitely be playing for a medal.
