    There is an inquiry going on about the Japanese dismount. Posibility GB could go into bronze if Japan win inquiry and go up over 0.5

    edit - if Japan go up less than .491 GB still get silver.

    Aaargh! This is all very tight.

    It all hinges on whether the Japanses dismount was credited - he landed so it should have been counted, but with a heavy penalty - however if the judges didn't include the dismount in the score, then the Japanese total could go up by 0.5 and that might push GB back down to Bronze.

    Hold your breath...!

    Edit: the enquiry has been validated, so the Japan score will go up.....but by how much?!

    Japan have been awarded extra points for the dismount, so they move up to silver, and Britain have to accept bronze.

    Still an amazing result, but a shame that it looked even better for a while - crowd are booing, which I guess is understandable, but the result is fair.

    After that wait for the enquiry it seems the jury have made a fair decision.

    It was fair - it's just a shame it happened that way, because it looked like we had an almost unprecedented silver for a few minutes!

    Great Britains last Olympic medal in this event was exactly 100 years ago in 1912, and that was a bronze as well - still an incredible performance though, and well deserved...!

    It is a shame but it seems that the Japanese guy did 'dismount' rather than fall so it should have been counted and it hadn't been. Fair play to the judges - they relooked at the videos, decided it should have been scored (with appropriate deductions?) and made the correction.

    At least we still got a medal - and that's quite something after 100 years!!!
