· Elaine Thompson Herah has broken an Olympic record as the second-fastest woman ever in a 100 meters race. The Jamaican runner finished in 10.61 seconds, a time only ever beaten by Florence Griffith-Joyner's 10.49 seconds in 1988.

· Dina Asher-Smith, the world's 200 meters champion, pulled out of the Olympics because of a previous injury. The British runner told the BBC that she couldn't continue with the games because of a hamstring injury she got before traveling to Tokyo.

· France beat Japan 4-1 at the judo mixed team match, the sport's first-ever mixed event at the Olympics. Israel and Germany won the bronze medals.
