Swimmer Ellie Simmonds and archer John Stubbs will carry the Great Britain flag at Tuesday's Tokyo Paralympics opening ceremony.

Both athletes will be competing in their fourth Games in Japan.

Simmonds, 26, will be the first woman to carry the flag for GB at a summer Games since fellow swimmer Maggie McEleny in 2000.

Stubbs, 56, is the oldest member of the GB team and will be the first archer to fulfil the role in recent history.

Sarah Storey put in another world record-breaking performance on her way to claiming her 15th Paralympic title, as Great Britain claimed six medals on the first day of Tokyo 2020.

The 43-year-old smashed her world best by more than four seconds in the C5 3,000m individual pursuit qualifying and in the final caught team-mate Crystal Lane-Wright, who matched her silver medal from Rio 2016.

Storey is just one behind Mike Kenny's British record of 16 golds.

There was also silver for tandem pair Steve Bate and Adam Duggleby in the B 4,000m pursuit.

Sophie Hahn defended her Paralympic title in the T38 100m, with fellow Briton Thomas Young winning the men's event in Tokyo.

The 24-year-old held her composure to fend off Colombian Darian Faisury Jimenez Sanchez in 12.43 seconds.

Shortly before Hahn's gold, Young pipped China's Zhu Dening to the men's T38 100m title in a personal best of 10.94.

The Great Britain wheelchair rugby team reached their first Paralympic final with a thrilling 55-49 semi-final win over hosts Japan.

The European champions started strongly and pulled away in the third quarter.

Jim Roberts top-scored with 20 tries with Aaron Phipps on 17 but the GB defence was also key against the world champions in Tokyo.

They will face the USA, who they lost to 50-48 in the pool stages, in Sunday's final

A fantastic result for the GB wheelchair rugby players - the first even European medal in the discipline and it's a gold! Well done to all of them.

Britain's David Smith retained his individual Paralympic boccia title with a thrilling victory in Tokyo in the BC1 decider.

The 32-year-old trailed Chew Wei Lun of Malaysia 2-0 after the first of four ends but stormed back to win 4-2.

The victory gives Smith his fifth Paralympic medal and sees him overtake Nigel Murray as the country's most successful athlete in the sport.

It is also GB's 30th gold of the Tokyo Games.

Swimmer Becky Redfern won silver in the SB13 100m breaststroke, just over a year after giving birth to son Patrick.

Ellie Simmonds said her Paralympic career was at an end after missing out on a medal in her final race in Tokyo.

The five-time Paralympic champion finished fifth in the S6 400m freestyle but was initially disqualified for an issue with one of her turns before a British Swimming appeal was successful.

However, it means the 26-year-old has failed to win a medal at her fourth Games.

"I don't think I could go for another three years," she told Channel 4.

"I'm leaving it at the right time, I love it, I've absolutely had a wonderful competition and I've loved every minute of it."

High jumper Jonathan Broom-Edwards said winning his first Paralympic gold was "an emotional rollercoaster" as Great Britain won three medals in Friday's morning session in Tokyo.

The 33-year-old world champion took silver at Rio 2016 but went one better with a season's best of 2.10m.

There was also gold for Paralympic debutant Owen Miller in the T20 1500m.

Hannah Cockroft secured her seventh Paralympic gold medal with a dominant win in the T34 800m, the first of three British titles on day 11 in Tokyo.

Cockroft set a new Paralympic record as British team-mate Kare Adenegan took silver, almost 11 seconds behind.

In another British one-two, Charlotte Henshaw won KL2 200m Para-canoe gold, with Emma Wiggs clinching silver.

Another gold soon followed in Para-canoe, with Laura Sugar becoming KL3 champion.

Stuart Wood, making his Paralympic debut in Tokyo, won bronze in a tight finish in the VL3 200m final.

Badminton player Dan Bethell became Britain's first medallist in the sport on its Games debut, taking silver in the SL3 singles final where he lost 21-14 21-17 to India's world champion Pramod Bhagat.

Jordanne Whiley and Lucy Shuker were left with silver in the wheelchair tennis women's doubles after they were beaten 6-0 6-1 by Dutch top seeds Diede de Groot and Aniek van Koot in the final.

It is Whiley's second medal of the Games after she defeated Van Koot for singles bronze on Friday.
