gymnast Simone Biles withdrew from two more finals in Tokyo on Saturday, leaving it unclear whether she will compete again at the Games, and a listless Novak Djokovic failed to take bronze in tennis after his dream of a "Golden Slam" was dashed.

Minutes after his singles defeat, Djokovic withdrew from the mixed doubles bronze match.

Swimmers Katie Ledecky and Caleb Dressel recovered some lost lustre for America, while Lyu Xiaojun took gold in men's weightlifting, bringing China's haul in the medal tally to 21.

Djokovic, who won a singles bronze medal in Beijing in 2008 but has failed to earn a place on the podium at the London, Rio and now Tokyo, withdrew from the mixed doubles bronze medal match, minutes after his defeat by Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta in the singles bronze match.

On Friday the Serbian lost to Germany's Alexander Zverev in the singles semi-finals, killing his hopes of winning all four Grand Slams this year as well as the Olympic gold for a 'Golden Slam'.

His withdrawal from the mixed doubles means women's world number one Ashley Barty and John Peers bag a bronze medal for Australia.

Simone Biles of the United States wearing a protective face mask gestures.

World champion Dressel stormed to the 100m butterfly title in world record time, picking up his second individual gold to add to the gold he won in the 4x100 freestyle relay.

Britain won the Olympics' inaugural mixed 4x100 medley relay for their fourth swimming gold delivering a world record time.

In women's volleyball, the United States' hope of winning a first gold took a hit when they lost ace spiker Jordan Thompson to injury in a straight sets defeat by the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) team.
