Michael Venus and Marcus Daniell have won New Zealand's eighth medal of the Tokyo Olympics after claiming bronze in the men's doubles tennis tonight.

Competing against USA, 7-6, 6-2 was the final score.

Which means Venus and Daniell made history by winning our first ever Olympic tennis medal.

New Zealander Anthony Wilding won a bronze medal in tennis at the 1912 Olympics competing for the combined team of Australasia.

So tonight's win is the first win for a New Zealand team and technically our first tennis medal in 109 years.

Congratulations boys!
