fourth bmx medalfor team gb, a quite remarkable week for british bmx. swimmer duncan scott has become the first british athlete to win four medals at a single games. he now has a gold and three silvers, after the men's 4x100 metres medley relay team finished second behind the united states. the americans broke the world record to win it, caleb dressel ending his olympics with five gold medals. team gb can celebrate their best swimming haul at a games — but they were still disappointed with silver. u nfortu nately we unfortunately we just didn't do enough to when our gold but with the success of the british women are fired and all of us have had some times you need a little bit of pain. it's painful to come away and then a no that's a standard without now. we're not looking at bronze or silver, were looking at how to get gold and that is my mindset. i know these guys are disappointed with that as well and that's just an honest opinion about our performance
9:35 am
and how we thought we do. there are three british boxers through to their finals but there was controversy, as frazer clarke's opponent mourad aliev was disqualified in their super heavyweight bout. the frenchman was warned by the referee for his use of the head, which left clarke with two bad cuts — the briton needed to win the second round to get back into the fight and after further warnings, the contest was called off the briton needed to win the second round to get back into the fight and after further warnings, the contest was called off and clarke declared the winner. aliev was absolutely furious but clarke said he'd had problems against him in the past. that's not the way i wanted it to go either. i don't go in the ring to end up like this. that is the fourth cut i have got not one has been a punch. that is not how the sport should be done. i'm not saying and purpose these things happen, the referee is in there to do a job. ben whittaker wil compete for light heavyweight gold after he beat imam khataev of russia. whittaker described it as a "masterclass" but it was a split decision. he lost the opening

might how much it seems rishi sunak is asserting himself massively right now. there has been an announcement about a huge over haul in social care and this easing of travel restrictions seeing the hopes of millions are hanging in the balance in the last few crucial weeks of the summer from the travel industry. and he basically is making the case that britain was such a big vaccination rate is way behind other countries and what they are low. there is still significant travel destructions across the world for places like australia and new zealand and the united states, they are having to restrict as well but the chancellor is clearly keen to try to take advantage of the vaccination programme and let people travel more and get the business going again. those are the sectors he is really worried about, martin.
