Poland became the first team to secure one of the Rio 2016 men’s volleyball places on offer at the Olympic qualification tournament in Tokyo on Thursday, while an Iran win and a Japan loss saw the home team wave goodbye to Brazil.

Japan’s disappointing run at the tournament continued with a 25-23, 25-19, 29-27 loss to an Australian team that had also been struggling to put together a consistent performance all week.
