    ...and then home.

    A handful more medals, the closing ceremony and it's over for another four years.

    Boxing aside, anything to add to the haul today?

    Could China get two golds?

    Twelve golds, and we're in three of them. Mountain biking and marathon being the others. I suppose we could get something in the former.

    Fabulous!

    I had no idea Nicola Adams was 33! I thought she was about 22. I look forward to her doing the reality TV circuit.

    I know right. She's about 10 years older than all the other boxers, apart from the one who is fighting today. She might even be back in Tokyo.

    Amazing. She may be my least likely favourite current Olympian.

    GB aside, have any other countries over-performed or under-performed?

    I'm not a fan. But then I can't stand Mo Farrah either.

    He's really fucking boring. And not in the least bit good looking either.

    Bloody hell. Our GB Marathon runner Callum Hawkins came 9th, but it was only the third time he's run that distance :o

    These floor apparatus routines in the gymnastics are weird. They look nice and I know they're amateurs, but anyone in Cirque Du Soleil can do better.

    According to the lovely Mark Chapman there's a review and highlights show of sorts from 8pm although on the EPG it's just listed as their standard Olympics show from 18:30.

    What fucking version of Christianity is this? The hateful one?

    Our local Church of England vicar is gay and married.

    Some of the Cirque de Soleil cast is made up of former athletes.

    So I'd be a middleweight if I were to box. According to Wikipedia.

    Everyone's new favourite lesbian, Kate Richardson-Walsh of lesbian hockey fame, is going to be carrying the GB flag at the closing ceremony.

    I think they should ditch the rhyming and give the tumbling discipline the two quota of two gold medals.

    Tumbling is stunning:

    I didn't realise Joe Joyce is both 30 AND a fine arts graduate. His paintings are quite pleasant.

    This would be far more appealing if they were fucking for 9 minutes instead of hitting each other in the face
