  1. Good night/good morning

    That's a wrap from the BBC Sport team - for a few hours at least.

    Thanks for continuing to join us in bewildering numbers. That's five days of competition down, 11 more to go.

    See you shortly. Get some rest now. 

  2. Track and field set for debut

    Women's heptathlon on Friday

    Official start times are in for the first day of track and field action on Friday (or day seven to Olympics devotees).

    Defending heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill and GB team-mate Katarina Johnson will take part in the first four of seven events - 100m hurdles, high jump, shot put and 200m.

  4. High five for day five

    Well...six medals for Team GB

    It was quite a day for Great Britain, with two golds and four bronzes in Rio.

    That's the medals done for Wednesday in Rio.

  7. Gold Medal - United States

    Women's 4x200m relay

    Katie Ledecky has her third gold of the Games, and her fourth medal in total. United States win it, Australia second and Canada delighted with third!

  8. Swimming

    Women's 4x200m relay

    The nations have all mixed up their batting orders which has made this an interesting race. Katie Ledecky was 10m back but now she comes through...

  9. Swimming

    Women's 4x200m relay

    Australia, China, USA, Canada, Sweden. Katie Ledecky on the anchor leg could be the difference maker here...

  10. Colombia up next for Brazil



    Here's the quarter-final line-up after the conclusion of the group games in Olympics men's football:

    Brazil v Colombia; Portugal v Germany; South Korea v Honduras; Nigeria v Denmark

  11. Swimming

    Women's 4x200m freestyle

    Sweden still lead at the conclusion of the first 200m leg, just outside world record pace now. But here come China and Australia...

  12. Swimming

    Women's 4x200m freestyle

    Michelle Coleman of Sweden leads the first leg, she is under the world record split after 50m. And 100m too...

  13. Swimming

    Women's 4x200m freestyle

    Katie Ledecky and Katinka Hosszu among the swimmers going for yet another medal here. Missy Franklin, 200m freestyle specialist, has been dropped. She's out of touch, out of time. 

  14. Football

    Denmark 0-4 Brazil

    It's all over in Salvador and Brazil are into the quarter-finals after a very impressive display against Denmark. 

    Hard to believe, but Brazil have never won an Olympic gold. Could this be their year?

  15. Wallace gets his reward

    Men's 200m individual medley

    Mark Foster

    Former freestyle world swimming champion on BBC One

    Dan Wallace is still only 23, he has another Olympic cycle in him, and it's great to hear that his love for swimming is back again because you need that to put the effort in.

  16. Wallace enjoying his swimming again

    Men's 200m individual medley

    Dan Wallace after qualifying for the final tells BBC One: "Two months ago I didn't think this was possible but I knew I had it in there somewhere and it was nice to step up when it counts.

    I've started to enjoy swimming again and days like last night and this night made it clear to me that I want to keep doing this as long as I can."

  17. 'I don't follow swimming'

    Naivety, arrogance, just plain youth. Kyle Chalmers just blew the world away to win the 100m freestyle and he comes out with this:

    "I'm someone who does not follow swimming too much. I follow basketball, football and soccer."

  19. Swimming

    Men's 200m individual medley

    Adrian Moorhouse

    1988 Olympic 100m breaststroke champion on BBC One

    Lochte was working hard. I think he's going to struggle in the final. Pereira will have the support of the crowd to push him but Phelps goes in as the quickest.
