Great Britain have matched their total from London 2012, winning 65 medals at Tokyo 2020.

At what has been a strange Olympics for so many reasons, Team GB will finish behind only Olympic heavyweights the USA and China, and host nation Japan.It was always likely that they would struggle to replicate their second place finish from Rio de Janeiro, but to have beaten the ROC and a surging Australia represents a solid effort from Great Britain.

The number of British athletes standing on the top step of the podium is also down on the number from nine years ago in London – Team GB secured 29 gold medals at their home Olympics.UK Sport had set a target medal range of 45 to 70 medals for Tokyo 2020.

Cycling was Great Britain’s most successful sport in Japan.12 medals (six gold) were secured on two wheels by the British team, including four medals in the two BMX disciplines and Tom Pidock’s mountain biking triumph early in the Games, while Jason Kenny became the most decorated British Olympian on the track.This is the same total as Team GB won in Rio and London, though two more golds were secured in 2012 across the cycling disciplines.
