    So the USA wrap up men's basketball  gold - the 15th time they've won it out of 19 Olympic finals.

    That's the end of the action and what a fantastic Games it has been for the hosts Brazil - recording their most successful Olympics - and Team GB too, who became the fist post host to win more medals than their home Olympics with 67.

    It's time for the BBC interactive crew in Rio to sign off after 17 days of action and 306 medal events. It's been a blast. Obrigada!

  4. Gold Medal - USA

    Men's final

    There you have it. The 306th and final gold medal of the 2016 Olympic Games has been won by the United States men's basketball team.

    They have wiped the floor with Serbia, winning the final 96-66.

    The US finish with 45 golds in total.

  5. Basketball

    Men's final

    One minute left. The last medal of the 2016 Olympic Games is about to be won...

  7. Post update

    Afghanistan have got a volunteer. I think they only had three athletes in their team, so maybe they've all gone home.

    Greece - Ekaterini Stefanidi

  9. Post update

    I've just been sent the list of all 207 flag-bearers for the closing ceremony. If I published them at one a minute from now on, it would take us past the start.

    Men's final

    Safe to say the USA are bossing this final, 79-43 up after the third quarter.

    The crowd are happy and participating in every "cam" going. We've had flag cam, kiss cam, bongo cam and muscle cam. Basketball fans sure know how to have a good time at Games!

  13. How to end the Olympics


    T Skepper: End the Olympics with Tug Of War as the final medal. Straight knockout. All competitors to have competed in an earlier sport.

  14. Post update

    Then again, given the way GB dominates in the velodrome, that theory could put an end to track cycling.

  15. Basketball

    Men's final

    Three quarters of the way through this contest, otherwise known as the American coronation.

    The US are 79-43 up on Serbia.

    The States have won every gold medal bar one since 1992. The women have won all bar one since 1984.

    When they come to decide which sports are in the Olympics, should they take into account the possibility for one nation to dominate?

    It is so difficult to pick a moment. What is special about the Olympics is the 28 sports coming together. 

    The Brownlees were outstanding but my moment was Maddie Hinch saving the penalty in the first half of the hockey.

    More thoughts on my end-of-Games super-event. I think I might have the combat and ball sports in first. Win those and you get a little head start in the mega-relay.
