Rio 2016: Catch up with the best of the action from day 10 of the Olympics

Cyclist Mark Cavendish won silver after Charlotte Dujardin's dressage gold as Great Britain retained second place in the Rio 2016 medal table.

Cavendish was second in an eventful omnium race to earn his first Olympic medal and GB's 41st of the Games.

Dujardin became the second British woman to win three Olympic golds by retaining her individual title.

Brazil celebrated its first athletics medal of the Games as Thiago Braz da Silva won the pole vault.

He was roared to victory by a partisan crowd, clearing an Olympic record 6.03m at the second attempt to dethrone France's Renaud Lavillenie as champion.

Sophie Hitchon took bronze in the hammer, the first GB female to do so.

Britwatch - Women into hockey semi-finals

Britain are one ahead of their medal tally at the same stage of London 2012 and are in contention for another through the women's hockey team, who beat Spain 3-1 to set up a semi-final against New Zealand on Wednesday.

Action went ahead despite a wild fire, roughly 10 miles from the venue, which littered the playing surface with ash before the evening session.

Also in the semi-finals are badminton pair Chris Langridge and Marcus Ellis, who beat Japan's Hiroyuki Endo and Kenichi Hayakawa.

Earlier in the Games, cyclist Laura Trott became the first British woman to win three golds, and the defending champion leads the women's omnium at halfway as she seeks a fourth title.

Cavendish takes a supreme silver

Golden treble for Dujardin and Valegro

An emotional Dujardin admitted she felt pressure going into the Games, which could be the last for her aboard Valegro.

The 31-year-old, whose routine scored 93.857%, emulated the achievement of Trott, 24, in winning three golds after her double success at London 2012.

"It was just one of those magical rides," said the Enfield-born rider, who is the first British woman to retain an individual Olympic title.

Germany duo Isabell Werth and Kristina Broring-Sprehe were second and third.

Watch GB's Mark Cavendish and Elia Viviani's wheels touch before the crash

Cavendish, meanwhile, was "super happy" with silver behind Italy's Elia Viviani, telling BBC Sport: "I would have liked gold, but I have got my Olympic medal."

The 31-year-old Manxman, 30 times a Tour de France stage winner, was involved in a dramatic mid-race crash but there was no protest as South Korea's Park Sanghoon was taken out of the velodrome on a stretcher.

Rio rain halts evening session

The athletics evening session was temporarily suspended during the men's 110m hurdles heats after heavy rain sparked fears the track was dangerous.

As the track at the Olympic Stadium threatened to turn into a stream, the men's pole vault final and women's discus qualifying were also delayed.

There was another poor attendance, with the 56,000-capacity arena appearing to be less than a third full.

In sailing, light winds meant the men's Laser medal race - where GB's Nick Thompson has an outside medal chance in sixth - was postponed until day 11.
