  1. Sitting pretty

    Medal table

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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." 

  4. Britain's 'Terrific Tuesday'

    Almost time for us to wrap things up but before we do, here's reminder of what was won on 'Terrific Tuesday':

    GOLD - 3 SILVER - 2 BRONZE - 4. TOTAL - 9

    19:01 - Giles Scott wins gold in the men's Finn class

    19:23 - Amy Tinkler, 16, wins bronze in the women's floor final

    20:13 - Nile Wilson wins bronze in the men's horizontal bar

    21:42 - Laura Trott wins gold in the women's omnium, the fourth of her career and the most golds for a female British Olympian

    22:14 - Katy Marchant claims a bronze medal in the women's sprint

    22:19 - Five minutes later, team-mate Becky James takes silver in the same event

    22:47 - Boxer Josh Buatsi claims a bronze in the men's light-heavyweight category. That takes Team GB's medal haul to 48, a new record for an overseas Games.

    23:03 - Jason Kenny wins his third gold of the Rio Games and sixth of his Olympic career in the keirin, matching the record Great Britain gold haul of Sir Chris Hoy.

    23:27 - Jack Laugher brings up Britain's 50th medal by claiming 3m springboard silver

  5. Athletics

    Ireland's Barr makes men's 400m hurdles final.

    On the track, this was a great moment. Ireland's Thomas Barr seemingly surprises himself as he qualifies for the men's 400m hurdles final.

  6. Post update

    Michael Johnson

    Stayed with us until the very end? Then you'll have been rewarded by footage of Michael Johnson trying to swat a fly.

    Quite possibly the moment of the Games.

  7. Athletics

    Women's 1500m final

    Paula Radcliffe

    Women's marathon world record holder on BBC One

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. Athletics

    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."

  10. Post update


    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.

  11. Athletics

    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.

  12. McLeod wins gold in 110m hurdles

    Men's 110m hurdles final

    Watch Jamaica's Omar McLeod take gold in the men's 110m final with Spain's Ortega and France's Bascou taking silver and bronze.

  13. Athletics

    Men's 110m hurdles final

    Michael Johnson

    Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC One

    That was fantastic by Omar McLeod. There was a huge gap between him and the rest of the field.

  14. Athletics

    Men's 110m hurdles final

    Colin Jackson

    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.

  15. 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.

    Men's 110m hurdles final

    And they're away...

  17. Athletics

    Men's 110m hurdles final

    It's the final bit of action on the track for the night and it could be anyone's race.

    Omar McLeod was the fastest man in qualifying, blazing through with a time of 13.15s. Will he put it together again?

    Seconds to go...

  18. Athletics

    GB's Andy Pozzi struggles in 110m semi

    Despite a strong start, GB's Andy Pozzi tightens up and is unable to keep his pace or composure, finishing in a disappointing 5th.

  19. Athletics

    GB's Clarke crashes out of 110m hurdles

    Final 110m hurdles hope Lawrence Clarke was unable to repeat his heroics of London 2012, where he came an outstanding fourth in the final, and cannot qualify in what was a very competitive heat.

  20. Post update

    Men's 110m hurdles


    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.

    BBC commentator Andrew Cotter isn't impressed by it: "They've painted a bit of plywood."

    No Brits in this final...
