'He's a great champion'

Del Potro beats Djokovic

It's always easy to praise an opponent when you've dumped them out of the Olympics but Juan Martin del Potro was full of praise for Novak Djokovic after beating him tonight.

He said: "He’s a great champion, a friend for a long time. I know how important this event was for him. He wanted the gold medal, but I also believe he knows about my effort.

"I talked to him all through my rehab. I’ll always be thankful for his words. We respect each other so much. It was a spectacular match from any point of view."

So happy to be here

Adrian Moorhouse

1988 Olympic 100m breaststroke champion on BBC One

It's a historical moment for me to be here and watch Adam Peaty win gold 28 years after I won it.

Jazz lights up the night

What a smile. That's what a silver medal means to Jazz Carlin. And she has the 800m freestyle still to come...

Jazz Carlin
BBC Sport

'Carlin a great example'

Carlin wins 400m freestyle silver

Andy Jameson

BBC commentator and former British Olympic swimmer

What a night it has been. It wasn't a surprise that Adam Peaty won - it was more relief and joy that he did it so well - but Jazz Carlin's silver was a bit of surprise. She swam brilliantly. She did the best she could and deserves to be there receiving silver, having produced a lifetime best.

Jazz gets her medal

Silver medalists come in two camps. Those who are made up to take home silverware and those who think they should have had gold.

Jazz Carlin is firmly in the first camp as she is adorned on the podium. Beaming from ear to ear. 

Jazz Carlin

In a league of her own

Love this picture. Look how far Katie Ledecky won the 400m free by. She had time to turn around, take in the scoreboard and start celebrating before Jazz Carlin - in the red cap - even finished in second!

She won by 4.77 seconds. Amazing. 


Gotta name 'em all...

19 Olympic golds now for Michael Phelps - US take 4x100m freestyle, France silver, much-fancied Aussies bronze. Reckon he can name them all?

'Phelps deserves gold'

Phelps wins 19th gold of his career

Adrian Moorhouse

1988 Olympic 100m breaststroke champion on BBC One

Phelps deserves gold for that swim. He's back on form and he's got some individual races where you wouldn't want to bet against him.


Brazil 0-0 Iraq


It's just like watching... Iraq. Brazil are unable to break down that not-so-great footballing nation.

The host side are still searching for their opening win of the Rio 2016 men's football competition after this embarrassing stalemate. 

Led by Barcelona forward Neymar, Brazil could not find a way past their stubborn Group A rivals in Brasilia. 

It is their second goalless draw of the tournament after another blank against South Africa on Thursday.

Iraq's players celebrate like they have won the World Cup. And why not.

'I'm devastated'

Women's 100m backstroke semi-finals

Georgia Davies after missing out on the backstroke final: "I'm devastated. I wanted to keep the vibe rolling. I thought I had more after the heat this morning but it just wasn't there.

"Day two of an eight-day meet and Adam and Jazz have performed out of this world. The team will be buzzing."


Men's 4x100m freestyle relay

That's 23 Olympic medals for Michael Phelps, his son Boomer looks on. Incredible.

France have the silver, Australia bronze. 

Gold Medal - United States

Men's 4x100m relay

Michael Phelps has his 19th Olympic gold medal!


Men's 4x100m freestyle

It's the US still ahead, France second, Russia third...


Adrian Moorhouse

1988 Olympic 100m breaststroke champion on BBC One

I think we're the only people sitting down. The whole place is on its feet. It's only going to get noisier with Brazil in contention.

Phelps monsters the field

Men's 4x100m freestyle

Michael Phelps in second for the States, he jumps in in second behind France and ends his leg clearly ahead. He took more than a second out of the field! 

A 47.1 leg...


Adrian Moorhouse

1988 Olympic 100m breaststroke champion on BBC One

Getting someone of Phelps' calibre in second is a great idea to try to get a lead but I think it'll be tight all the through this final.


Men's 4x100m freestyle

Caeleb Dressel off like a shot for the US but it's Brazil who turn in first...


Men's 4x100m freestyle

Almost set. Will we see another world record to end the night in the pool?


Phelps time

It's Michael Phelps time. He's not used to sharing air time with British breaststrokers.

It's the men's 4x100m freestyle relay. A 19th gold medal for the most-decorated Olympian?

An emotional night

"I've no make-up left," says @adam_peaty's mum @cazliz123. A few tears shed by the family after his Olympic gold ❤️🏅

'Pressure is not real'

Adam Peaty on BBC One: "So much relief. Coming here people were saying it's going to be tough and there's pressure on me but pressure is not real, it's in your mind, almost wanting to stop you achieving things, but I got into the right mindset and wasn't scared. 

"I am so happy to have GB's first gold of the Games and it's so good for it to be in swimming.

"This is what you dream of. Every time you want to go back to bed at 4am when it's dark this makes it worth it. Every day I push the boundaries and it's paid off.

"I'll get back on Twitter tonight. I want to thank the whole of Britain, the Royal Family, everyone."

'Floods of tears'

Rebecca Adlington

Double Olympic gold-medal winning swimmer on BBC One

It's been incredible. We keep screaming at Adam to come and give his mum and dad a hug. They are in floods of tears.

Wolveslad27: People hung the medal round his neck a while ago, the pressure he must have felt then to do that is incredible.

This is so nice to see Well done @adam_peaty #bbcrio2016 #BringOnTheGreat

Peaty wins gold

Adam Peaty's family look on from the BBC studio on the balcony as Adam Peaty parades around poolside with that gold medal hanging from his neck.

At 21 the best I could offer my parents was a dubious university degree from a dubious institution. I can't imagine how they must all feel!
