Team England’s track cyclists combined to add a bronze medal in the men’s team sprint to the British medal tally at the European Games.

Jason Kenny and Ryan Owens formed part of the three-man sprint team that rode clear of the Czech Republic trio in the bronze medal race in a time of 42.020 seconds.

Joe Truman also received a medal having ridden as part of the team in an earlier round.

Jason Kenny told Team GB: “I think we’ve got all of the ingredients, we’ve got a strong team. It’s just a case of putting them together and getting everyone together on the right day at the right time, going well. We’ve got the potential to certainly take it to the Dutch and give them a run for their money hopefully.” 

Semi-finals await mixed doubles pairs

There could be a repeat of the all Team England mixed doubles final from Gold Coast 2018 with both England pairs progressing through to the semi-finals of the badminton event.

Top seeds Chris and Gabby Adcock overcame a battling comeback from their Danish opponents in their quarter-final tie to win in three games.

Meanwhile Marcus Ellis and Lauren Smith made light work of the number three-ranked German pairing to advance through to the last four in straight games.

Both will also feature in the semi-finals of the men’s and women’s doubles events, with Ellis teaming up alongside Chris Langridge in tonight’s semi-final versus Holland, as Smith partners Chloe Birch in their fixture against France.

Having lost out in the quarter-finals of the women’s singles, it represents an immediate opportunity for Birch to return to winning ways.

Six medals guaranteed in boxing

Team England’s boxers are guaranteed silverware as they box for a place in the finals.

Galal Yafai, Peter McGrail and Pat McCormack all put in faultless 5-0 displays to reach the final four where they are joined by Cheavon Clarke, Ben Whittaker and Luke McCormack.
