    JOE JOYCE will watch Anthony Joshua's rematch against Oleksandr Usyk with conflicted feelings. The heavyweight will soon be called to fight the winner due to his status as WBO mandatory challenger. 4Joe Joyce pictured before boxing Oleksandr Usyk in 2013Credit: Getty 4Anthony Joshua pictured after sparring next to Joe Joyce Joyce is a former sparring partner and team-mate of Joshua during his time spent on the GB Olympic boxing squad. But in 2013, he boxed and lost to Usyk over five rounds in the World Boxing Series tournament - a hybrid of amateur and professional boxing. And having also sparred with WBC champion Tyson Fury, out of the three Joyce fancies his chances most against Ukraine's Usyk. But it would mean needing the newly crowned unified king to do the double over AJ before Joyce could get his anticipated rematch. Asked who his style matches up best with, he told SunSport: “I say maybe Usyk. "Because AJ is more likely to knock me out and with Fury you’re in danger of being outboxed....

    GALAL YAFAI booked his place in the final of Tokyo 2020's men's flyweight tournament with a hard-fought semi-final victory over Kazakhstan's Saken Bibossinov. The Birmingham bruiser turned in an eye-catching display at the Ryogoku Kokugikan to earn a split-decision victory. 1Galal Yafai celebrates his victory over Kazakhstan's Saken BibossinovCredit: PA Yafai came out like a bat out of hell, immediately pouring on the pressure and unloading punches in bunches. A big left hand stunned Bibossinov and resulted in him receiving a standing eight count. Yafai didn't relent after the restart, going back to work in the short range and mixing up his shots well. To his credit, Bibossinov rallied late in the round but not enough to take the stanza. Yafai's lead uppercut continued to trouble Bibossinov early in the second, in which he has swarmed again. But unlike in the previous round, Bibossinov began to put pressure on the Brit - who boxed comfortably on the back foot. The better quality shots came from Yafai, but the judges gave the second round to the Kazakh. Round three proved to...
    FRANCE lodged a protest against Great Britain's gold medal sailors Hannah Mills and Eilidh McIntrye, accusing them of CONSPIRING with Poland.

But the protest was swiftly dismissed by the stewards, so the result stands. Meanwhile, Mills and McIntyre had already jumped into the water in celebration of their gold medal before they heard anything about a protest.

    JASON KENNY has become Team GB's greatest-ever Olympian after winning a record eighth medal - after grabbing silver in the men's team pursuit.

    TEAM GB'S fading men’s team pursuit medal hopes suffered a devastating blow as leader Ed Clancy quit the Games - and retired from cycling.

And now GB chiefs have confirmed Clancy is out of the rest of the Olympics due to an 'on-going back and sciatica issue'. Clancy said: “I’m absolutely gutted that my Olympic career has ended this way, but it would be unfair of me to try to carry on now I have aggravated my back injury. “Ultimately, I want the rest of the lads to build on the hard work we have done over the past year and a half and give them the best possible chance of making...
    OLIVER Townend guided GB to team eventing gold - and can now go for the dream double later today. The 38-year-old form Huddersfield, riding Ballaghmor Class, could afford to have FOUR fences down in the showjumping phase to ensure GB of victory after Tom McEwen went clear and Laura Collett had just four faults on London 52. 1Townend guided Team GB to an historic gold medalCredit: Getty But the world number one was not prepared to settle for that as he clipped just one rail at the opening of the ninth fence, a double. It dropped Townend down to second in the individual standings behind Julia Krajewski of Germany, who went clear earlier. But with McEwen up to third, less than a fence separates the top four, completed by Andrew Hoy of Australia, with Collett just a fraction of a point further behind in fifth. Townsend knew he might have damaged his individual hopes but the team gold may be a consolation if he cannot get back to the top of the pile. It was still a round that made...

    THE prize money for athletes who land medals at Tokyo 2020 has been revealed. But it’s bad news for Team GB winners, who have so far claimed five golds, seven silvers and six bronzes. 2Team GB medallists get no cash prize for finishing on the podium at Tokyo 2020Credit: Getty The Independent claims British Olympic medallists such as Tom Daley get NOTHING for making it on the podium. In comparison, the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee shells out around £27,000 for a gold medal, £16k for silver and £10k for bronze. But that’s nothing when it comes to other countries who tend to win fewer medals. Malaysian athletes get £17k for bronze, £52k for silver and £173k for gold. Meanwhile, Hong Kong pays £115k for bronze, £230k for silver and £461k for gold. But Singapore hands out the most, giving £205k for bronze, £266k for silver and an eye-watering £533k for gold.

But a late equaliser from Scottish midfielder Caroline Weir saved Team GB against the 2012 and 2016 bronze medallists. Having already progressed, manager Riise made five changes - resting three-goal Ellen White and adding Fran Kirby to the bench after injury. Team GB gained the upper hand in the first half, with Georgia Stanway going close before Rachel Daly was denied by an excellent block from Ashley Lawrence.

    AIMEE WILLMOTT'S hopes of crowning her career with an Olympic medal were shattered as she failed to deliver at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre.

Defending champ and world record-holder Peaty won his semi-final after Wilby came third in his.

    JAPAN finally raised the curtain on the Covid- delayed 2020 Olympics with an opening ceremony inspired by hope — in a stadium with no fans. Just 950 VIPs gathered inside the 68,000-seat Olympic Stadium in Tokyo. 5Flag bearers Mohamed Sbihi and Hannah Mills of BritainCredit: Reuters 5Just 950 VIPs gathered inside the 68,000-seat Olympic Stadium in TokyoCredit: Getty Athletes representing the 206 competing countries marched in the traditional “parade of nations” — with some even waving at the empty stands. Team GB sailor Hannah Mills and rower Mohamed Sbihi flew the flag for Britain, but just 22 competitors out of our squad of nearly 400 were allowed to take part. With Covid rates rising in the capital, the £13billion Games opened to a dazzling fireworks display and socially-distanced dance routines in an otherwise eerily quiet stadium. The number of performers was limited too, so large projectors and LED lights added colour and action. And for the first time the ceremony was mostly focused on specially-made TV segments for viewers back home. Clips included messages from Olympians past and present accompanied...

    TEAM GB are set to record their worst medal haul since Athens 2004 at this summer's Olympics, a supercomputer has predicted. The Tokyo 2020 Games are officially underway after a year-long delay due to coronavirus. 2Team GB are set for their worst medal haul since Athens 2004, a supercomputer has predictedCredit: PA And while this summer's rearranged Olympics hasn't been without its drama, athletes are finally ready to go for gold. Team GB have broken their record medal tallies at the last two Games in a row - London 2012 and Rio 2016. The home heroes won 65 medals, including 29 golds in London.

That would be the worst tally since Athens 2004 when Team GB won just 30 medals. Team...
