    I think that means that they know perfectly well that the race should never have been stopped.

    At 5:30pm on Day 11 in 2012, the gold medal tallies were China 33, USA 29, UK 21. China ended on 38, we ended on 29. Maybe there is a chance we could end up holding second?

    I'm having flashbacks to the world athletics championships when stroppy queen Jon Drummond held up the 100m after a false start and ended up lying on the track

    We pulled 4 from boxing last time in the later stages. We might get one this time in that sport.

    What's left? Triathlon and 5000m probably, but i can't think of anything else.

    This must be horrible for the cyclists.

    And what about Huw Edwards?

    Looks like China vs UK in the diving. All to play for.

    Why did they stop SHOWING THAT?

    Anjem Choudary will be furious that something as unislamic as sport is usurping news of his richly deserved prison sentence.

    Leon Taylor is annoying. He doesn't really have many words to describe things.

    Diving like gymnastics is a very attractive sport for men, like no others.

    That Michael Hixon is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Jack Laugher's thighs are a force of nature too, but we all knew that.

    I think I'd add rowers. But not swimmers.
