That was intense...

Rio 2016

BBC Sport in Rio

Wow, that Facebook live was intense. What was meant to be a chat with David Condon and Dan Fox ended up with us seeing emergency goalkeeper practice with Maddie Hinch and inspecting bruises on the legs of others. Oh, we also met an obscure Brazilian rodent.

On a serious note, it seems Team GB's hockey players are ready. They've gone through the obscure scenarios that may arise in a match but are highly unlikely.

Sam Quek tells me the women's team have some tricks up their sleeve. George Pinner - the men's keeper known as The Great Wall of Ipswich and pictured here on the right - says the intensity of last night's friendly win against the Netherlands was expected and useful.

He adds the pitch at Deodoro feels exactly like what they train on near London. So all is well, aside from the bruises that is.

One-Day Cup latest

Cricket

Essex must wait to see if they are into the last eight of the One-Day Cup after rain prevented any play against Gloucestershire at Bristol.

The visitors won the toss with the match already reduced to 38 overs per side, before the rain returned as the players took to the field.

The result leaves Essex on 10 points, but they will be knocked out if Kent, Middlesex and Hampshire all win their final games in the South Group.

It's funny how life works. Aleksandar Aleksandrov, pictured here on the right, was a keen basketball player growing up in Bulgaria until a school visit from a coach prompted him to try rowing. 

Some 12 years later he's been to an Olympics and when I met him yesterday, cut the figure of a man at ease with a second crack. Alksandrov, now competing for Azerbaijan, could barely tell me what day his event started. Now that's a chilled out guy.

Azerbaijan rowers
.

He's symbolic though. You see athletes all over Rio and they all look relaxed, with body language far removed from the reality that this next fortnight can define the last four years. It makes me wonder when it hits them, the reality, the fear of failure, the pressure. The night before?

Judgement day is looming. I'm keen to see if later this week we see a shift in mood. Will the game face suddenly shine through across Rio?

Ramprakash: Root's 254 a 'masterclass of Test batting'

Cricket

England batting coach Mark Ramprakash details the conversation he had with Joe Root ahead of his double century "masterclass" against Pakistan at Old Trafford.

Root scored a career-best 254 off 406 balls as England won the match by 330 runs.

In the previous Test at Lord's, the 25-year-old twice surrendered his wicket with loose shots.

Beaumont primed for super-sub role again

Graeme Thomas' anger is understandable given the GB men's quad crew have a good chance of reaching the podium and his parents have already flown out to Rio. 

But his withdrawal through illness mirrors the Lucerne World Cup in May where another member of the crew, Peter Lambert, withdrew with illness and Jack Beaumont turned super-sub to help the quad finish second behind Australia. 

Beaumont has already flown out to join the team on Monday and will match the achievement of his dad, Peter, who raced at the 1988 Olympics.

GB men's quadruple sculls rower Graeme Thomas didn't even get a chance to get wet at the Olympic venue of Lagoa and now he's going home because of a virus, picked up before he arrived in Brazil. 

The 27 year-old said: "Seven years of dedication and it's all over before taking a stroke in anger. I don't agree with the decision, but I don't think anyone in my shoes would. As an athlete you always back yourself.

"I wish my friends and crew all the best, I still believe they can do it without me."

The British School has a hockey pitch, 25m pool, gym, you name it. Team GB boxers are here, as are hockey stars, canoe slalom athletes and more.

This is where the final hard yards are put in. On Saturday it's for real. Team GB's male hockey players meet Belgium, a game which on paper they should win. A good start is crucial.

One thing to keep an eye on is a change up in rules for this Olympics. Rather than two 35 minute halves hockey is broken down to four 15 minute quarters for the first time. The intensity should increase. Team GB need to handle it.

The way sport deals with drug cheats needs fundamental reform, according to International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach.

More than 100 Russian athletes have been banned from this summer's Games in the wake of a World Anti-Doping Agency report into state-sponsored doping.

"We need a full review of the Wada anti-doping system." said Bach.

Heartbreak for Team GB's Thomas

Rio 2016

Team GB rower Graeme Thomas will miss out on competing at Rio 2016.

The 27 year-old from Preston fell ill on Saturday - the day after his arrival in Rio - with a flu-like virus understood to have developed before his arrival in Brazil.

Jack Beaumont, 22, from Maidenhead, has flown out to join the team in Rio and will now follow in the footsteps of his father Peter who raced at the 1988 Olympic Games.

The British School is one seriously secure venue but we are in and the decor is screaming Rule Britannia.

This room is called Team GB nearest and dearest. It's basically where family can come and mingle. 

The walls have images of athletes with loved ones, there are good luck drawings done by pupils in the school too (some are amazing).

Throw in a lot of Union Jack pillows and it feels like home.

Hockey players due for media chat at 13:00 BST. Hopefully we will be live on Facebook for a short chat with them.

This has not been confirmed but it's being reported that world number four Stan Wawrinka will miss the Rio Olympics with an injury.

The two-time Grand Slam champion won doubles gold alongside fellow Swiss Roger Federer at Beijing 2008.

Well, he IS wearing shoes... kind of.

Gymnastics

It's not too noticeable but David Lee of the USA volleyball team has a slight height advantage over gymnast Simone Biles.

A two foot height advantage.

However, as the favourite to win the all-around competition, we expect Biles be standing a little taller when she leaves Rio in a couple of weeks time.

Everton sign Gueye from Villa

Football

More on the news that Idrissa Gueye has joined Everton on a four-year deal.

The Senegal international and former Lille player, 26, spent only one season with the Midlands club, who were relegated to the Championship last season. Only N’Golo Kante made more interceptions and tackles combined across Europe’s top five leagues last season.

Gueye said: “I am very happy to be here at Everton and I am very happy and excited to put on the blue shirt to start the new season here."  

Everton manager Ronald Koeman said: “Idrissa will provide quality in our squad in the midfield and we want to increase the quality in the team. He was one of the players last season with the best record in interceptions and pressing in the midfield. We need this kind of quality and I’m happy to have him joining our club.” 

The fee has not been announced as yet.

A logistical nightmare

Luke Reddy

BBC Sport in Rio

Parque Tijuca
.

From the relative peace of Parque Nacional Tijuca - home of Christ the Redeemer - to the chaotic streets of Rio. It's quite a change up in pace.

Waiting to cross a road here you may as well pull out a book for a while. It sounds trivial, but traffic could have a big impact on these games. It's certainly not a place where any athlete wants to chase time after sleeping in for an event. 

Olympic lanes are apparently going to be operational but the guidance is sketchy. A new road linking the city to the rural Deodoro setting (which hosts 11 sports) is just about up and running. A 10-minute journey on paper is a 30-minute affair, so plan accordingly. 

The logistics involved for all 206 of the countries you see are broad and critical. Those planning out the athletes' movements deserve a gold medal of their own. Running, jumping, throwing and riding are easy by comparison.

GB swimmer sells cakes to fund mum's trip to Rio

A lovely heartwarming story here...

As a member of Team GB at the Olympics, swimmer Chloe Tutton need not worry about travel and accommodation in Rio - but it is more complicated for her most dedicated follower.

Mum Claire was desperate to be at her daughter's career-defining moment but needed a little help from friends - and a crowd-funding page.

"My mum is a single mum and, ever since I was young, we've been putting everything into my swimming," the British 200m breaststroke record-holder said.

"Coming into Rio, the expenses are really expensive so me and my mum have been setting up meetings so I can have my photo taken with people, signing autographs.

"It's really sweet because the little kids love it. It's completely out of my comfort zone but I need to get used to it.

"We've been baking cakes and selling cakes and all sorts. I'm so grateful for everyone who's helped my mum. It means a lot to me, I'm glad she'll be there."

And here is one of your encounters with an Olympian featuring THE Chloe Tutton.
