Dom Inglot, Colin Fleming, Kyle Edmund added to Team GB tennis squad

Dom Inglot, Colin Fleming and Kyle Edmund are all added to Great Britain's tennis squad for this summer's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Team GB have announced that Dom Inglot, Colin Fleming and Kyle Edmund have been added to the squad for this summer's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Inglot and Edmund were part of the Great Britain team that won the Davis Cup for the first time in 79 years last year, while Fleming will be appearing at his second Olympics having featured in the men's doubles at London 2012.

The trio join defending champion Andy Murray, Jamie Murray, Johanna Konta and Heather Watson in the team, and Team GB's chef de mission Mark England talked up the qualities of the seven-strong squad.

"In Dom and Kyle we welcome two Davis Cup winners into the fold while Colin is hugely experienced having competed at both an Olympic and Commonwealth Games," he said in a statement.

"The seven players that will travel to Rio 2016 will be one of the best squads we've had as part of Team GB and I am confident in their ability to perform once again."

The tennis will run from August 6 to August 14 at this summer's Games.
