Result: Great Britain claim silver in men's 4x200m freestyle relay

Great Britain claim the silver medal behind USA in the men's 4x200m freestyle relay at the Olympic Games.

Great Britain have claimed silver in the men's 4x200m freestyle relay at the Olympic Games.

The USA - who were anchored by Michael Phelps - dominated from start to finish but Team GB made their way through the field to edge out Japan.

The quartet of Stephen Milne, Duncan Scott, Dan Wallace and James Guy looked like achieving bronze at best as they trailed both the USA and Japan for the majority of the race.

However, Guy produced the fastest final 200m of the field - as much as 0.41 seconds faster than Phelps - but although he got past Takeshi Matsuda, he was unable to catch the legendary Olympian who wins his 21st gold medal.

Earlier on Tuesday, Phelps had claimed his 20th in winning the 200m butterfly final.
