After winning bronze in the team dressage on Tuesday, Charlotte Dujardin will be back at the equestrian centre from 0930 aiming for a third-successive Olympic individual title. Dujardin, 36, won gold and silver at Rio 2016, adding to double gold from London 2012. If she finishes on the podium again to collect a sixth medal, Dujardin will move ahead of Dame Katherine Grainger and tennis player Kathleen McKane Godfree as Britain’s most decorated female Olympian.

Swimming

After a thrilling comeback win over the United States to reach the semi-finals, Great Britain’s rugby sevens squad take on New Zealand for a place in the gold-medal match.

Judo

Gemma Howell, who won a European bronze medal in 2018, will compete in the under-70 kilograms division at the Budokan.

Gymnastics

Joe Fraser – unexpectedly crowned 2019 world champion on the parallel bars – and James Hall will represent Team GB in the men’s all-around gymnastics final, which starts at 1115. Nikita Nagornyy, competing for the Russian Olympic Committee, is favourite to add gold to his all-round world title.
