    There's a slight delay people.

    Reigning Olympic champion Conor Fields from the USA is receiving some medical attention who had a coming together.

    However it doesn't seem as if it's affecting the 17-year-old Kye Whyte who seems cool as a cucumber.

    ROWING WOES

    GB rowers’ week of woe ended with yet more disappointment – and the first Games without a gold medal since 1980.

    After Vicky Thornley became the SIXTH GB boat to succumb to the “curse of fourth”, the defending champion men’s eight could only finish third behind New Zealand and Germany.

    Despite the second medal of the regatta, it was a poor end to a miserable week, with the reaction of the crew telling its own story.

    And the nightmare at the Sea Forest Waterway could have a massive long-term financial effect on one of Team GB’s best funded sports.

    ROWING – WOMEN's SINGLE SCULLS

    Vicky Thornley was the latest to suffer British rowing’s “curse of fourth” as she missed out on a single sculls medal at the Sea Forest Waterway.

    Thornley, who partnered Katherine Grainger to silver in Rio, said the singles was the boat she wanted to row in above all others.

    But from the outset of the regatta she has looked, at best, an outsider for bronze.

    And as New Zealand’s Emma Twigg cruised to victory, Welsh paddler Thornley became the SIXTH GB boat to finish one place out of the medals.

    Thornley wanted to be in the race by the half-way mark but found herself fifth through the first 500m, 1.51 seconds behind Twigg.

    She looked as if she might drop to the bottom of the pile but with 500m to go it was clear she was locked in a scrap for third with Austria’s Magdalena Lobnig.

    Thornley gave it everything in the final burst but was not able to close the gap and finished a third of a length behind the Austrian, with Hanna Prakatsen of Russia second.

    DINA TIME CONFIRMED

    Dina Asher-Smith will be out at 4.15am BST for her first round of the 100m.

      RETURN OF THE MAC

      Rory McIlroy is back in action for round two at the Kasumigaseki Country Club.

      He ended the first round four shots off leader Sepp Straka.

      McIlroy said: "I always wondered what the Olympic spirit was – you get here and you feel you're part of something bigger than yourself," said McIlroy.

      "I can see this in 20, 30, 40 years time being as important as the majors."
