17:10 (IST)30 JUL 2021

So, India's journey in 4x400m mixed relay is over. But we still had a content day as Lovlina Borgohain confirmed India a medal in boxing. Also, PV Sindhu also marched into the semifinal after an emphatic win over Akane Yamaguchi. Sadly, Deepika Kumari failed to make it to the last four in archery, while the women's 25m air pistol team falted.

That's all for today. We'll see you tomorrow. Until then take care and goodbye.
