It was a busy day for the Irish again on the second day of action in Rio.

Boxing is likely to deliver a bulk our medals and both David Oliver Joyce and Steven Donnelly getting through their opening fights to reach the last-16.

Joyce beat Andrique Allisop and Donnelly saw off Zohir Kedache as Ireland made it two wins from two so far.

There were mixed fortunes in the pool with Shane Ryan through to a semi-final in the 100 metre backstroke but Fiona Doyle eliminated after the 100 metre breaststroke.

Meanwhile Team Ireland remain in contention after the dressage part of the Equestrian event: 

The men's hockey team were outclassed 5-0 by a heavily-fancied Netherlands side in their second pool match in Group B. But with three more pool matches to go, Ireland are still in with a chance of progression. 

In gymnastics, Eilis O'Reilly became the first female gymnast to represent Ireland at the Games but did not advance.
