$$beta$$-delayed $$gamma$$-ray spectroscopy of the neutron-rich isotopes $$^{123,125}$$Ag was carried out at RIBF, RIKEN. The long predicted 1/2$$^{-}$$ $$beta$$ emitting isomers were identified in both nuclei for the first time. The new experimental results extend the systematic trend of energy spacing between the lowest 9/2$$^+$$ and 1/2$$^{-}$$ levels in Ag isotopes up to N=78, providing a clear signal for the reduction of the Z=40 subshell gap in Ag towards N=82. The tensor force is found to play a key role in the reduction of the Z=40 sub-shell gap.
