ANDY MURRAY and Jade Jones’ gold medal defences have both come to an end on a dismal Day 2 of the Tokyo Olympics for the Brits.
Murray dropped a bombshell by withdrawing from his tennis singles title defence just hours before he was set to face Felix Auger Aliassime.
The two-time gold medalist confirmed his medical team has advised him to play in only one competition during the Tokyo games and he will therefore continue in the doubles with Joe Salisbury.
Jones meanwhile fell at the first hurdle to Kimia Alizadeh of the Refugee team.
And Team GB women’s hockey went down to Germany 2-1 in a close fought opening match of their title defence.
But Adam Peaty is safely through to the Men’s 100m breaststroke final after another commanding victory in the pool.
