The equestrian event is underway. It is the bottom section at the moment (dressage and jumping are the others). Only a few drivers have completed their rounds, but … GB’s Oliver Townend is leading the way. That means she leads Germany’s Julia Krajewski and Japan’s Tomoto Kazuma in the overall standings. Shane Rose from Australia and Jonelle Price from New Zealand are fifth and sixth.
Merel Blom from the Netherlands has the best name for his horse: The Quizmaster. I also like Phillip Dutton from USA. It’s a simple effort: Z. In the overall team standings, GB leads Germany, New Zealand, Japan and Australia in that order.
But a lot more equine actions are ahead so things can change quickly.

The last round of men’s golf is underway. They are just the backmarkers at the moment. New Zealand’s Ryan Fox is -1 for the round after two holes and Australia’s Marc Leishman is single hers started. But they are 14 and 13 behind the leader respectively, and they will not disturb the podium.
And speaking of leaders: the American Xander Schauffele is in gold with -14, followed by the Japanese Hideki Matsuyama with -13 and the British Paul Casey and the Mexican Carlos Ortiz with -12. Irishmen Rory McIlroy (-11) and Shane Lowry (-10), Briton Tommy Fleetwood (-10) and Australian Cameron Smith (-9) are also in the mix.
Here’s a full recap of yesterday’s third round:

Hello World! Just a week (and a bit) until the end of the games and after yesterday’s sprint queens finished their stuff (and, my word, they did), sprint kings will be in effect tonight in Tokyo. We’ll have live coverage of that later, but for now here’s my colleague Martin Belam with other highlights from the next 24 hours.
Key events for Sunday, August 1
In total, now all, all events are listed here in local Tokyo time. Add one hour for Sydney, subtract eight hours for Cardiff, 13 hours for New York and 16 hours for San Francisco. If you are reading this on the International Space Station, I’m not sure I can help to be honest.

- 7.30 am golf – the final round of the men’s competition, with a reminder that such an early start in Tokyo means it’ll be on TV at 11.30pm in the UK tonight, which is dangerous territory if you don’t want to be fooled into staying I stay up all night like I was in the mixed triathlon relay last night. The group of leaders leaves at 11:09 am 🥇
