The Hundred continued to entertain fans, while the British and Irish Lions were forced into a decider against South Africa.
The Japanese men's table tennis trio of Jun Mizutani, Koki Niwa and Tomokazu Harimoto won against Australia's Hu Heming, Yan Xin and David Powell 3-0 in the first round of Monday's team event, paving the way for the host country to enter the quarter-finals. Olympic mixed doubles gold medallist Mizutani and 26-year-old Niwa, two of the trio that earned silver at the 2016 Rio Games, took a strong lead in the doubles match even as the Australian pair Hu and Yan attempted to catch up by alternating between short and long shots.
Jamaica's Shericka Jackson will not be able to add to her bronze from the 100 metres after a terrible error in the heats of the 200 on Monday, where she eased up too much and was overhauled on the line to finish fourth. Jackson, third-fastest in the world over the distance this year, did not bother to glance across and almost came to a stop as Italy's Dalia Kaddari slipped four-thousandths of a second in front of her to snatch the third automatic slot. There were no such problems for her two compatriots in the 100m clean sweep as Elaine Thompson-Herah and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce advanced safely through.
European champion Muir safely progressed along with Team GB team-mate Katie Snowden.
