Jakob Ingebrigtsen came home first for Norway and set a new Olympic record in the men's 1500m final. The Norwegian cross the line on 3:28.32, slicing a good three seconds over the previous record, set by Kenya's Abel Kipsang during the heats at Tokyo 2020.

Find out how you can follow all the action.

Baseball: bronze for Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic won the bronze medal in baseball on Saturday, with a pair of huge innings at the plate wrapping around South Korea's one big rally to secure a 10-6 victory.

The Caribbean country's first-ever medal in a team sport will be well-celebrated in a nation where many of its 11 million people grow up playing baseball, with the poor using bottle caps or whatever they can find on the streets as a makeshift ball.

Missing out on the Tokyo 2020 podium piles additional disappointment for South Korea after the United States won against them in the semi-finals, denying them the chance of winning a second straight gold in baseball at the Games. The team had two returnees, including former Major Leaguer Kim Hyun-soo, from a 2008 run when baseball last appeared in the Olympics. Kim shook hands of winning Dominican friends on Saturday as he left the field.

The United States and Japan play for the first Olympic gold in baseball in 13 years later on Saturday.

Kenya grab gold and silver in women's marathon

It was a one-two for Kenya as many predicted in the women's marathon, although the favourite Brigid Kosgei took silver, while her compatriot Peres Jepchirchir got the gold. The suprise medal went to the US, with Molly Sidel taking bronze in only her third ever marathon. She kept pace with the leaders right through to nearly 40 km but was eventually shaken off by the Kenyans.

Canada clinch first football gold after tense shootout

Canada won the women's football final, beating Sweden in a game that went right down to the wire. The score stood at 1-1 after 120 minutes and was decided from the penalty spot. Both teams converted two and missed three, with the shootout agonisingly going to instant death. Julia Grosso struck the decisive spot-kick, sending her effort inside the top corner.

It is Canada's first Olympic gold in women's football, they collected bronze in 2012 and 2016.

Liu Shiying wins women's javelin with first throw
