India's pursuit of a first medal in the Rio Games got closer as P. V. Sindhu played a brilliant game of badminton to upset Chinese world number two Wang Yihan to progress to the semis. Sindhu will play Japan's Nozomi Okuhara for a spot in the final.

A day after a wobbly performance on the balance beam, Simone Biles showed off her sassy moves and explosive tumbles on the floor exercise to win a record-equalling fourth gold.

Meanwhile, Usain Bolt once again jogged towards the end of the 200m heats to qualify for the final.

Day 13 has 16 gold medals on offer.
