Result: Roma held by Atalanta BC

Roma fail to move above Lazio in the Serie A table after being held to a 1-1 draw by Atalanta at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma missed out on the chance to move above Lazio and up to second in the Serie A table after being held to a 1-1 draw by Atalanta BC this afternoon.

The match was just two minutes old when Roma were awarded a penalty for Guglielmo Stendardo's handball inside the box, and Francesco Totti made no mistake in converting the resulting spot kick.

However, Atalanta were given a penalty of their own when Davide Astori brought down Urby Emanuelson, and German Denis kept his composure to slide in the set piece.

Roma looked for a quick response and Totti was inches away from connecting with Radja Nainggolan's dangerous cross.

Alessandro Florenzi was next to threaten when his near-post attempt was beaten away by Marco Sportiello.

Early in the second half, Emanuelson tried his luck from range with a curling effort that was comfortably held by Morgan De Sanctis.

As the game moved past the hour mark, Florenzi had another chance for the hosts, but his strike was kept out by Sportiello.

Roma continued to dominate, but they were unable to find a second goal as they drew for the 13th time in the league this season.

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)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· 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)
