Michael Phelps ties for silver medal in 100M butterfly

When Singapore's Joseph Schooling looked up at the giant scoreboard after touching the wall in the men's 100-meter butterfly Friday night, he celebrated his win by punching his fist in the water, and then headed over to Michael Phelps.

The most decorated Olympian of all time lost the gold to Joseph Schooling of Signapore.

"It hasn't really sunk in yet", Schooling said. I wouldn't say that as a result of this there's going to be a change, neither would I say that things will remain static.

So, unless Phelps decides to come out of retirement again, his final individual race at the Olympics will go down as a silver. Pulling up behind him was Phelps at 51.60.

"Just 25 days ago I couldn't even train", Nadal said, adding that he was unsure until days before the Games whether he would compete at all.

"Hopefully he changes his mind". "I mean I have a lot of goals".

Phelps, 31, insists he won't be back for a sixth Olympics. Schooling had to convince his parents before they allowed him to get the tattoo.

"Whenever I hear the national anthem", Phelps said.

"I'm sorry if I don't seem like I'm full of emotions but I don't know what to believe - that I actually did it or I'm still preparing for my race".

Katie Ledecky obliterated the field and her own world record in winning the 800m freestyle in 8min 04.79sec. After failing to reprise his 400m free title from London he won the 200m free here, and can become the first man to win the 200m and 1500m free at the same Games. Joining Debbie Meyer as the only women to sweep the three longer freestyle events at the same games, Ledecky won her signature event in 8 minutes, 4.79 seconds.

Jazz Carlin claimed British silver in 8:16.17 and there was bronze for Boglarka Kapas of Hungary in 2:16.37. Ervin's United States co-captain Nathan Adrian finished with bronze with a time of 21.49 seconds.

She tied with Canadian teenager Penny Oleksiak in an Olympic record of 52.70 seconds. Will she end her time in Rio on a high note? Five of those victories were in individual events, tying the single Games record.
