Medal table
BBC

Right that's it from us for tonight. In a few hours my colleagues will be powering up a new page to build up to all of the action on day 12 but for now I'll leave you with the medal table. Looks pretty good, doesn't it?

Time to get some kip. See you later.

What a couple, what a story

Plenty to cheer about but day 11 was all about these two: Jason Kenny and Laura Trott.

Britain's golden couple.

Record-breaking overseas Games

Team GB have won 50 medals in Rio, surpassing the previous best at an away Games of 47 at Beijing 2008.

"What this team has delivered so far is an incredible achievement and the country should be extremely proud of the athletes and their support staff," said Team GB's Rio 2016 chef de mission Mark England.

"The best ever away Games is a piece of history and I'm delighted that we've been able to reach that target so on early on at Rio 2016. 

"With five days still to go, and a number of sports yet to even start competing, no doubt we can look forward to more success to come from Team GB."

Quite possibly the moment of the Games.

Down the back straight, you almost wanted to go out and give Laura Muir a push. She couldn't keep going, she had burned so much of her pace trying to get to that point. 

She was hanging on and it is horrible because you can feel the other athletes coming past you. There is pain everywhere.

You feel like you're carrying a fridge down the home straight.

Athletics

Women's 1500m final

You cannot fault Laura Muir for effort, she breaks out with the leaders, but doesn't quite have the gas to hold on and slips to a still very credible 7th. 

Kenya's Kipyegon takes gold from Ethiopa's Dibaba with Jennifer Simpson of USA taking bronze.

GB's other representative Laura Weightman improved on her performance on London 2012, finishing in 11th.

Men's high jump

GB's Robbie Grabarz after finishing fourth to narrowly miss out on a second Olympic medal: "I made one fatal error at 2:25 and it cost me a medal. But I'm proud of finishing fourth at an Olympic Games, even though it is a punishing place to finish.

On the controversy after his 2.33m jump: "It was a technicality. They held the white flag up which means it is the end of your go and the bar was cleared. The bar did then fell off, but technically they had given me the clearance. I explained the rules to them and they had to check and double check. It was stressful. They made a mistake."

The track and field athletes couldn't quite follow up the antics of the track cyclists on terrific Tuesday, so GB stays on four medals in the table. A chance of adding to that tomorrow, though.

Omar McLeod is living for the moment right now, walking around the track with the Jamaica flag draped around his shoulders. The smile on his face is sill as wide as it was the moment he crossed the line. An Olympic champion at 22. Lap it up.

Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC One

It is great to see Omar McLeod take the title. He has been in the shadows of Jamaican team-mate Hansle Parchment for so long. Now after all the injury problems Omar has had - for many years - it is nice to see him win.

He blasted out of the blocks, backed off a little bit and then settled down quickly. There was no urgency with his hurdling, which is exactly what you need to do to win a major title.

He got over the barriers nice and clean and won gold.

Gold Medal - Omar McLeod

Men's 110m hurdles final

Omar McLeod of Jamaica takes the gold medal with ease, blitzing the field with a time of 13.05m. He's screaming to the sky, thanking anyone and everyone. Fair to say he's over the moon.

Spain's Orlando Ortego takes silver while the bronze medal goes to Dimitri Bascou of France.

A bit of razzmatazz about the athletes' entrance for the 110m hurdles final. They all come running through a colourful tunnel as their names are announced.

No Brits in this final...

'A punch in the face'

Men's high jump final

So near yet so far for Robbie Grabarz after he missed out on a medal by finishing fourth in the high jump final.

"I'm gutted," he says. "Fourth is a punch in the face."

Harsh world of sport. Miss a stride into H8 & ruin an Olympic dream. Absolutely gutted but will give it my all if selected for the relay.

Great Britain's Laura Muir after finishing seventh: "I went for the win, it's not every day you find yourself  in an Olympic final. I was in great shape but the last 150m was not quite in me. I gave everything and I'm proud with how I ran. 

"I expected it to be slow start and then for Kipyegon and Dibaba to come round. I expected to have to react, I followed them round but I couldn't hold on. 

"It's my first Olympics, I gave it everything."

China win gold number 17 of the Games as they thrash Germany 3-0 in the final.

Japan, meanwhile, took bronze by beating Singapore 3-1 win, a result which sees Mima Ito become the youngest ever Olympic table tennis medalist at the age of 15.

Poor Laura Muir. She went with it but these two - Kipyegon and Dibaba - are so good. They make you go so hard. Muir's chance of a medal went with those two. She went for gold but gave up her chance of hanging around and picking up a medal.

The Commonwealth champion becomes the Olympic champion. Kenya's Faith Chepngetich Kipyegon times it right to delve into the energy reserves and storm to victory in 4:08.92.

Ethiopia's Genzebe Dibaba is second, with Jennifer Simpson of the USA third.

Laura Muir went for gold and ultimately it cost her as she crosses the line in seventh, with Laura Weightman 11th.

Laura Muir will need to decide whether she gambles everything and goes to win the race from the start, or go for a medal which she know she can do, and try to win it from there. To lead from gun to tape is pretty much impossible in a 1500m race.

Right then, women's 1500m final time. Great Britain's Laura Muir is in this. The Scot, a student of veterinary medicine, is off for a two-week placement at a dog rescue centre after Rio. A medal would be a pretty nice way to sign off.

Also in this is Muir's team-mate Laura Weightman. She finished 11th in the final of the same event at London 2012.
