Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow kept their cool to clinch 10m synchro diving bronze as Great Britain added two more medals on day three of the Rio Games.

The pair produced a great final dive to overtake Germany, as Team GB’s pin-up Daley won his second Olympic bronze.

Earlier, Ed Ling finally won an Olympic medal on his third attempt as he took bronze in the men’s trap shooting.

Britain’s men missed out on a team gymnastics bronze, while the women’s rugby sevens team also came fourth.

Fortune was not shining for Team GB in the eventing, with William Fox-Pitt slipping out of medal contention going into the final showjumping round.

It was day when some stuttered and others held their nerves:

  • Unbeaten women’s pair through – Rowers Heather Glover and Heather Stanning nearly had their six-year unbeaten run broken by Denmark but a strong finish saw them through to the semi-finals as heat winners
  • Barnes suffers shock defeat – There will be no third successive boxing gold for Ireland’s Paddy Barnes who lost his light-flyweight bout against Spain’s Samuel Carmona

Australian cyclist crashes in training

Australia women's team pursuit

Only a day after Dutch rider Annemiek van Vleuten suffered a horrific crash in the women’s road race, a track cyclist was taken to hospital after an accident in training.

Australia’s Melissa Hoskins was taking part in team pursuit practice when the crash happened involving three of her team-mates.

Ashlee Ankudinoff, Georgia Baker, Amy Cure came off their bikes, as did Hoskins who was carried off the track on a stretcher and then taken to hospital as a precaution.

The team pursuit competition begins with qualifying on Thursday.

Tickets sold, but where are the public?

Diving venue seats

Almost 80% of available tickets have been sold, but the TV cameras are showing empty seats at the arenas – why is that the case?

Organisers have put up billboards of Jamaican sprinting superstar Usain Bolt urging Brazilians to buy tickets inside some arenas.

Rio 2016 chiefs say they are cracking down on tickets touts with around 40 detained inside the Olympic Park on Monday.
