Result: Spirited Charlton Athletic battle to win

Igor Vetokele's first-half header helps Charlton Athletic beat Reading 1-0 in their Championship clash.

Spirited Charlton Athletic have secured a 0-1 win against Reading this afternoon thanks to Igor Vetokele's first-half header.

The game's first half-chance fell to Glenn Murray, who looped a header over the bar after meeting a good ball into the box.

It was a quiet start to the contest, and Charlton would have been happy with the way they quietened the home fans.

Jordan Obita tried to find a way past the Addicks' resolute defence but his low drive was blocked in an exchange that typified the early stages of the match.

Johann Gudmundsson picked the ball out from 25 yards out and lashed a low shot at goal for Charlton's first shot, which was saved by Adam Federici.

Vetokele eventually got the goal that the visitors deserved when he headed home from Chris Solly's delivery.

Reading should have equalised just before the break, with Simon Cox's initial shot deflecting wide just before Murray's header flew past the wrong side of the post from a corner.

Murray continued his efforts to get the Royals back in the game after the restart as he turned and fired at goal from 25 yards out but his effort was comfortably saved by Stephen Henderson.

The keeper could do nothing about Oliver Norwood's drive, however, which flew past him and struck the post in what was a let-off for the away side.

Jamie Mackie was the next to come close with a shot that was clawed away by Henderson before Federici produced a fine save of his own to deny George Tucudean.

Despite forcing Charlton back into their own half for long spells the Royals could not find an equaliser, meaning that the visitors left with all three points.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
