As Typhoon Nepartak hit Japan, the women’s triathlon took place in wet and windy conditions on Tokyo Bay as Bermuda’s Flora Duffy won her country’s first-ever Olympic title.

The day after Alex Yee had won silver for Team GB in the men’s event, Georgia Taylor-Brown did likewise in the women’s, defying a bike puncture with a brilliant performance in the 10km run.
