Result: Ehsan Hadadi qualifies first to men's discus final

Ehsan Hadadi of Iran is the first discus thrower to claim a spot in the men's Olympic final with a shot reaching 65.19m.

Iranian discus thrower Ehsan Hadadi has launched himself into the final of the men's Olympic event with ease.

Hadadi will contest for a gold medal after throwing a 65.19m at the first time of asking, with Erik Cadee of the Netherlands coming the nearest so far with a 63.55m first attempt.

Meanwhile, Great Britain hopeful Brett Morse got his campaign off to a poor start after committing a foul throw when he came out of the circle just after launching a shot, which reached just under the 60m mark.

Abdul Buhari and Lawrence Okoye are also representing Great Britain in the qualifying rounds.
