Team GB have managed their fifth gold medal of the Tokyo Olympics with a stunning victory in the men's 4x200m freestyle relay race - their first win in the event in 113 years.

The team of Tom Dean, Matt Richards, James Guy and Duncan Scott came within a whisker of setting a new world record time, with their finish of 6:58.58 just 0.03s short.

The race included a superb third leg from Richards - now an Olympic gold medallist at the age of just 18 - who built a lead of almost 1.5s to hand over to Scott to bring it home.

The win builds on GB's silver in the event at Rio 2016, in which Guy and Scott also featured, and is a first men's relay gold for GB since the 1908 Olympics.

Having finished second to Dean in the individual event yesterday, Scott now finally has his hands on a gold medal - while Dean has become a double champion in the space of just 24 hours.

The US has traditionally dominated the event, winning at the last four Olympics in a row, but could only finish fourth in a team without Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.

Australia claimed the silver medal, while the final spot on the podium was taken by a team of athletes from Russia.

With three gold medals in the pool so far, Team GB's swimmers are now enjoying their best Olympics since 1908, with more medal opportunities still to come in the next four days. body check tags ::
