    The formalities are underway in Tokyo, with the Olympic flame that has burnt brightly for the last two weeks set to be extinguished as it's handed over to begin its journey to France in two hours or so.

    Tokyo has began their farewell to the Games.

    Over the next couple of hours we'll see some of the highlights from the last sixteen days, before the handover process to Paris begins.

    It's just a three year wait until we do it all over again!

    Team GB's 65 medals from Tokyo 2020 secure a fourth place finish in the medal standings.

    And comparing Team GB's performance in Tokyo with the last five Olympic Games it's safe to say it's been a special one, especially considering the circumstances and uncertainty surrounding the Games that had to be pushed back by a year.

    The Closing Ceremony from Tokyo gets underway in just five minutes time.

    The event will officially close the Tokyo 2020 Games and mark the end of the 32nd Olympiad.

    It's a sad moment after a quite brilliant 16 days of action.

    The Closing Ceremony will be held shortly at the Olympic Stadium to mark the end of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

    Laura Kenny will be the flag bearer for Team GB as the Games come to a close.

    She's a FIVE-TIME Olympic gold medallist, and has scooped a gold medal at three consecutive Games to make her Team GB's most successful ever Olympian.

    Team GB won medals at Tokyo 2020 across 25 SPORTS!

    That's a bigger spread of events than any other country at the Games, with Team GB Olympians providing so many memorable moments across a wide range of sports.

    From Cycling to Skateboarding, from Sailing to Swimming and from Athletics to Boxing.

    It's been an Olympics for the history books.

    But the lows on the track were also met with unimaginable highs.

    Keely Hodkinson (top) could barely believe her silver medal in the Women's 800m that set a new national record, and Laura Muir was also in disbelief after a brilliant silver in the 1500m.

    The sort of pictures that give you goosebumps.

    Team GB gold medal hopeful Dina Asher-Smith was also forced to withdraw from the 200m after failing to qualify for the 100m final.

    She revealed that she'd been suffering from a torn hamstring in the weeks leading up to the Games and was still running with the injury.

    She dusted herself off though to return to the track in the 4x100m relay, winning bronze alongside Daryll Neita, Asha Philip and Imani-Lara Lansiquot.

    But there was also heartbreak for some Team GB Olympians.

    Adam Gemili picked up an injury just minutes before competing in the 200m, but still lined up in the starting blocks to run with the injury in true Olympic spirit.

    Unfortunately he pulled up injured just a few steps into the racing, ending any medal hopes for the well fancied Briton.

    The 27-year-old picked himself up to hobble to the line and cross it in tears, in what is one of the must tear-jerking images of the Games.

    Team GB were expected to have a good Games, but nobody thought the medal tally would be as high as it is.

    Over 16 days in Tokyo 65 MEDALS have been won by Team GB Olympians, equalling their second-best medal haul in the modern era.

    It matches the number of medals won at the historic London 2012 Games, and is only two medals short of the record breaking Rio 2016 Olympics.

    What an effort.

    It's been another superb Olympics for the athletes of Team GB.

    Great Britain's haul of 65 medals is two short of the total won at Rio five years ago, but equals the memorable performance of London 2012.

    Here's how the top of the medal table looks at the end of a late, an unusual, but, ultimately, a brilliant Olympic Games.

    Tokyo 2020 may be drawing to a close, but Team GB were determined to bow out in style – and they've done just that.

    On a dramatic final day, cyclist Jason Kenny produced an astonishing performance in the Men's Kieren in which he accelerated away from the field early on to land his seventh gold medal. It leaves him as Britain's most decorated Olympian of all time.

    His wife's not so bad either, and the couple now have 12 gold medals between them and 15 medals in total.

    However, for Laura, there was no further success at these Games despite winning two of the Women's Omnium's four events. Unfortunately, a crash earlier in the day meant that her performance in the final points race was in vain as American Jennifer Valente took gold.

    There was better news in the boxing as Wales' Lauren Price continued her sensational sporting career. Previously an international footballer and kickboxing world champion, the 27-year-old saw off Li Qian to become an Olympic champion in the Women's Middleweight.

    It meant a sixth boxing medal for Team GB at these games, a performance only bettered by Cuba.

    There was ring success for Ireland too as Dubliner Kellie Harrington beat Brazilian Beatriz Ferreira in the Women's Lightweight final.

    Day 16 began with Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge becoming the first marathon runner in 41 years to successfully defend an Olympic title.

    Elsewhere, there was a first ever gold for the United States in the Women's Volleyball, as well as their now traditional victory in the Women's Basketball. France came out on top in the Women's Handball while Serbia retained their title in the Men's Water Polo.

    The klaxon sounds inside the Tatsumi Water Polo Centre, and it's the players and coaches of Serbia that are celebrating gold in the Men's final for the second successive Olympics Games.

    The Serbians held off a brave fightback from Greece to prevail 13-10, and build on their win in Rio. Having lost their world title, this successful defence is one that clearly means a lot to those involved.

    And that is the end of the sport for another four (three) years.

  • Sam Dymond


    All that remains of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is the final of the Men's Water Polo.

    At the Tatsumi Water Polo Centre, Serbia currently lead Greece 9-8 midway through the third quarter.

    Earlier this morning, Hungary took the bronze medal by beating Spain 9-5.

  • Sam Dymond


    In one of the last events of these Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, France have won their tenth gold medal.

    The French cruised to victory in the final of the Women's Handball, beating the Russian Olympic Committee 30-25 at the Yoyogi National Stadium.

    An emotional Lauren Price has just spoken about her achievements, having won gold in the Women's Middleweight Boxing earlier this morning. The 27-year-old sporting prodigy was brought up by her grandparents, and has previously discussed the pain of losing her grandfather last year.

    "I can’t really put it into words, it’s a dream come true. I still can’t believe it and I’ve got to pinch myself.

    "It just goes to show that if you dream and you work hard enough, then you can achieve everything.

    "Thank you to everyone who supported me along this journey that started when I was eight-years of age.

    "Thanks to everyone back at home for all the support, it means the world, and a big shout out to my nan. I can’t wait to see her – and it looks like we’re getting a gold postbox outside my house in Ystrad Mynach so happy days.

    "I know [my grandad] was looking down on me today, and all week really. I can’t put into words what they’ve done for me over the years."

    Uzbekistan giant Bakhodir Jalolov takes Olympic gold after seeing off the challenge of America's Richard Torrez Jr in the final of the Men's Super Heavyweight content.

    The six foot seven fighter used his height and power to battle back from an opening round in which he was shocked by his opponent to win by an unanimous decision from the judges.

    The final of the Women's Volleyball has ended in the Ariake Arena, and it's a historic triumph for the USA, who have defeated Brazil in three straight sets.

    The United States had never previously won this event at the Olympics despite finishing on the podium at the past three Games; they were runners-up to Brazil at both Beijing 2008 and London 2012 so today's success over the same nation will go a long way to banishing those memories.

  • Sam Dymond


    With Lauren Price's triumph, Team GB have matched the 65 medals they won at London 2012.

    Great Britain finish with 22 golds, 21 silvers and 22 bronze. It's been another excellent Olympic Games for our athletes.

  • Sam Dymond


    She's done it!

    A former international footballer and former kickboxing world champion, Lauren Price is now an Olympic champion in amateur boxing.

    Wales' sporting prodigy takes gold in the Women's Middleweight division by unanimous decision after dominating Li Qian from the off.

    A smart display of speed, precision and poise from the 27-year-old.

    Li fought back in round two but Lauren Price still landed some fine shots, resulting in a 4-1 split in the British fighter's favour.

  • Sam Dymond


    Lauren Price takes the first round unanimously with all five judges scoring the opening three minutes 10-9 in the Welsh fighter's favour.

    Li Qian has it all to do.
