Tokyo Olympics LIVE RESULTS: Dina Asher-Smith OUT of 100m in semi, GB win TWO golds in swimming & triathlon – updates


Here’s SunSport’s Martin Lipton reporting Team GB’s boxer Galal Yafai’s win from Tokyo:

Galal Yafai continued GB’s winning ring streak to reach the last eight – but admitted he was nowhere near good enough.

Flyweight Yafai, 28, edged past Patrick Chinyemba of Zambia to set up a showdown with former world champion Yosmany Veitia of cuba on Tuesday.

Brummie Yafai, the third of three boxing brothers including 2008 Olympian and WBA super-flyweight champion Khalid, squeaked out a 3-2 majority verdict by a single point from the Cuban judge.

Bizarrely, the Argentine official gave the slippery and elusive Chinyemba, who boxed entirely on the retreat, the second round despite taking a standing count.

Yafai admitted: “It was a nightmare.

“I have to step it up on Tuesday, one million per cent. If I box like that again I don’t deserve a medal, do I?”
