Once you’ve had a chance to catch your breath, there is plenty of other important action involving Hong Kong athletes outside the pool this morning. In the badminton, there is a winner takes all match between Rio 2016 silver medalist PV Sindhu and Hong Kong’s Cheung Ngan-yi in the women’s singles at 11am.

That is followed by Tang Chun-man and Tse Ying-suet taking on Marcus Ellis and Lauren Smith in the mixed doubles quarter-finals, before Angus Ng Ka-long plays his second and final group game at 6pm. Elsewhere, Doo Hoi-kem takes on the top seed Chen Meng in the last 16 of the table tennis at noon. Big day all round.
