Tokyo 2020 Olympics day six: swimming, golf, rowing gold for Ireland and more – live!

It’s morning in Japan and morning in Australia too. Which means our Aussie readers have a full day of action ahead of them. And given the success of Australia so far it may end up being another day awash with precious metals (and bronze, not sure if bronze is more on the semi-precious end).
