FOLLOWING ON FROM yesterday’s pilot, we are joined by Sinead O’Carroll live from Rio de Janeiro, to recap the last 24 hours and look ahead at today’s action.

Episode two of Hotline Rings looks back at Barnes’ shock defeat in yesterday’s boxing and how he dealt with the loss.

We’re also discussing the “Cold War” between the Chinese, Russians and everybody else in the swimming pool, as swimmers become vocal against former dopers.

Before Annalise Murphy takes to the water again later on, we are looking at how she is doing in the sailing, and assessing her chances in the long run.

We’re also talking about last night’s diving action and how smaller sports are coming to life during the Olympics.

Tune in tomorrow afternoon for episode three.
