Good night

Well, we didn't see that conclusion coming. A stunning way to end the day in Rio, gold for Brazil in unlikely circumstances.

More drama on Tuesday? See you there. 

They don't come around often

Thiago Braz da Silva is Brazil's fourth gold medallist in athletics after Adhemar da Silva (triple jump 1952, 56), Maurren Maggi (long jump 2008) and Joaquim Cruz (800m 1984).

Stefan Taylor: Nearly missed coach transfer to the airport because of Da Silva's amazing effort. Best moment of the games so far!!

Ian Bradley: Occasionally in sport situations arise that allow individuals to transcend what's possible, congrats Thiago Braz da Silva

Jonathan Chase: This pole vault shows the benefit of moving Olympics around. The lifting power of a home crowd shouldn't be underestimated.

'That's why we love sport'

"That was just sensational, fantastic - it is why we love sport."

James Hudson: In a flat in Rio, just heard a cheer in the flats and bars nearby, thought it football. No, gold in pole vault, brilliant!!

'The greatest moment of the Games'

Steve Cram

BBC athletics commentator on BBC TV

"We have had world records but maybe that is the greatest moment so far in the athletics.

"He beat a great and popular champion - and when he went over his winning height I looked along the line and everybody was up."

Olympic Record

Thiago Braz da Silva

That's an Olympic record too, at 6.03m. He had to earn it. And he did.

Rick: I screamed more at Da Silva's clearance than I have for any non GB medal winner. Brilliant for the host nation.

Jonathan Hooper: Must have woke up this early for a reason. What a competition that was!

Siriol Davies: The perks of pregnancy insomnia are getting to watch an amazing pole vaulting final

'A golden moment'

Tom Fordyce

Chief sports writer in Rio

That might just be the moment Brazil's Olympic Games have been waiting for.

Athletics

Men's pole vault

Three-and-a-half hours after the competition started, it's gold for Brazil. The crowd may be small in number but they are large in volume. Ear-splitting stuff. 

Gold Medal - Thiago Braz da Silva

Men's pole vault

Renaud Lavillenie can't make it at 6.08 and IT IS GOLD FOR BRAZIL!

He played that jump-off tactically brilliantly. Worked the crowd, played it like a fiddle. And found new depths of talent and resilience.

A superb moment of these Games!

Athletics

Men's pole vault

Here he comes...

Athletics

Men's pole vault

Here comes Renaud Lavillenie. Thumbs down after he is jeered by the crowd. Get a grip man. Gold medal at stake. 

'Destroyed it'

Tom Fordyce

Chief sports writer in Rio

Da Silva's previous PB was 5.92. He's not just destroyed that, he's broken the Olympic record. And set Rio alight in the process.

'Up there with the very best!'

Steve Cram

BBC athletics commentator on BBC TV

"I've seen some things over the years - and that is up there with the very best.

"Look at the joy on his face - incredible scenes."

The bar goes up

Men's pole vault

Great moment. Great moment. Brazil don't have many track and field medal hopes. That is massive.

Renaud Lavillenie passes at his next jump. He has to.

To win gold he has to go higher. 

He's got it!

Men's pole vault

Thiago Braz da Silva then, second attempt at 6.03m - GOT IT! HE'S GOT IT!

A new Brazilian record! Over it with room to spare!

Women's 400m final

'Superwoman' takes gold!

Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas hangs on for gold against American Allyson Felix, but can only do so by using the superwoman dive. 

A theme of the evening emerging...?

Bronze went to Jamaican Sherika Jackson

So close!

Renaud Lavillenie clears it again but hits the bar on his way down and dislodges it.

So close!

Men's pole vault final

Seven Nation Army booming out now, fabulous atmosphere despite the relatively small crowd.

Here comes Renaud Lavillenie. Attempt two at 6.03m. 

Athletics

Men's pole vault final

Here comes Thiago Braz da Silva. For a chance of gold...

6.03m - he doesn't reach the bar. 

Athletics

Men's pole vault

Renaud Lavillenie clears 6.03m! - But no! He lands on it on the way back down and knocks it off.

He will still win gold. Unless his Brazilian foe can clear this...

Athletics

Men's pole vault final

Renaud Lavillenie is the defending champion and the huge favourite. He's cleared every bar first time. But he doesn't look hugely confident. Doubts?

The bar goes to 6.03m

'I never doubted myself'

Olympic 800m champion David Rudisha: "My training was great and I have been having really good sessions since I was injured.

"I have had no doubts about my form - I never doubted myself.

"To win my second gold is a great moment for me."

Athletics

Men's pole vault

Thiago Braz da Silva has PASSED at 5.98m. He can't win gold by levelling with the Frenchman anyway. This way he gets three goes at the next height. I like the cut of his job. 

Tom Fordyce

Chief sports writer in Rio

Wonderful noise as Da Silva battles for pole vault gold. All his rivals have been booed, but if this makes sense, it's all rather marvellous.

Athletics

Men's pole vault

Top class! You can't argue with that as Renaud Lavillenie clears 5.98m at the first attempt.

Is that gold?

Athletics

Men's 110m hurdles

Deuce Carter wins the unique 110m hurdles re-run in 13.50 seconds and qualifies for the semi-final as a fastest loser.

Bronze Medal - Sam Kendricks

Men's pole vault

Sam Kendricks gave the bar an almighty wobble at 5.93m, it nearly stayed on. He is out - but he has a bronze medal for his luggage. 

Athletics

Men's pole vault

Brazil are guaranteed a medal in the pole vault.

The three men who will win medals - colours TBC - are Thiago Braz da Silva, Sam Kendricks of the United States, and Renaud Lavillenie of France. 

Athletics

Men's pole vault

Thiago Braz da Silva has cleared 5.93m! He stays in the medal hunt. In the gold hunt!

The home crowd go nuts. 

Athletics

Men's pole vault

USA's Sam Kendricks attacks 5.93m with real pace, so much speed on the runway. The first half of the jump is good, he's over the bar - but he clobbers it on the way down. 

'Hard lines Milan'

Tom Fordyce

Chief sports writer in Rio

Second time lucky for Deuce. But not for Serbia's Milan Ristic, the previous slowest fastest loser, who - hokey-cokey style - was first in and then out.

Athletics

Men's pole vault

Renaud Lavillenie has cleared 5.93m! He's the class act in this field. Easy. Miles over!

Brazilian Thiago Braz da Silva is in silver position...

Put in the dive!

Men's 110m hurdles

Deuce Carter wins the re-run in 13.50 seconds.

Is that enough? Yes. He is through at the second attempt.

Athletics

Men's 110m hurdles

The re-run is on. Deuce Carter - who was unhappy in the rain a few hours ago - gets another chance in the play-off for the qualifiers. There are six in the field.

Miller wins 400m gold

#bbcrio2016

Ian Bradley: Not sure what the technical difficulty marks will be for that dive but congrats Miller, Olympic 400m champion.

Mike: What a race! Phenomenal. Miller has beaten a great in Felix.

Shahid Miah: Millerjust defined diving - dive for a Gold medal not for a penalty! Congrats.

Alastair Susans: Bolt has to dive through the line in the 200m. Them's the rules now.

I don't think Usain would need a dive, he's usually strides ahead of the field by that point...

Athletics

This is how you win a close final...

Dive for the line!
