Hello – we’ve already won a medal!

Hi all, Sarah Keoghan here. Welcome to day four of our live coverage of the Paralympics.

GREAT news – we’ve already won a medal today! Jaryd Clifford has just claimed silver in the men’s 5000m T12.

What a way to start the day hey?

Our report Tom Decent, who is at the track in Tokyo writes: “Clifford came oh so close but had to settle for second. He had nothing in the tank at the end there. He clocked 14:35.52. Led at the bell with 400 to go but ran out of gas. A gallant effort.”

Up next, I’ll bring you the highlights of the day.
