TEAM GB enjoyed a historic overnight gold medal rush in the Tokyo Olympics with three medals added to their tally on day three. 

Swimmer Adam Peaty retained his Olympic gold medal and gained GB's first of the games in the 100m breaststroke as the world record holder blew away the competition in Tokyo with a time of 57.37 seconds. 

Peaty has now become a double Olympian in the process.

Tom Daley finally achieved his coveted gold medal alongside fellow diver Matty Lee in the men's sychronised 10m platform dive. The British pair's total score of 471.81 was enough to see off China's Cao Yuan and Chen Aisen who have had a grip on the coveted gold for years. 

Tom Pidcock capped off a tremendous night for Great Britain in the men's mountain bike cross-country race in Tokyo. The 21-year-old from Leeds finished 20 seconds clear of the competition.

A proud moment for all three athletes who recorded Great Britain's first gold medals of the games.

Peaty told BBC Sport: "It is not about who is the best all year round, it is who is the best on the day. It is about who is adaptable and who wants it more.

"When it comes down to it I am not racing for a time, I am racing myself.

"I want to say thank you to my family, my gorgeous partner and gorgeous son. This victory wasn't mine, it was the British team's and my family and friends'. I am just so relieved."

Pidcock told Eurosport: "I haven't done a good race since [the injury]," Pidcock added. "I've trained really hard, I knew I was in great shape but there's always doubt when I haven't performed in a race.

"But once the race started, I knew I was in a good place. The heat, I mean, obviously I didn't feel good but everyone just told me no-one will feel good."
