Joyce was much better for the majority, Yoka just defended for most of the round.
I don't really understand that result at all. Stupid judges.
I'd say we over-performed by getting our first ever gold medal. Joseph Schooling is paraded around by the media circus while the headlines bash all other athletes
John Inverdale: "I don't know if two fiancés have ever won golds together before at the same Olympic Games..."
Erm, Jason Kenney and Laura Trott? Bad memory.
John Inverdale not sure of any other gold medallists who are engaged to be married.
Clare Balding correcting him straight away!
Fun fact: Azebaijan got more medals than 12th placed Hungary, but finished 27 places behind them.
'I don't know if an engaged couple have ever won gold at an Olympics' (Inverdale) - um... Laura Trott and Jason Kenny... just last week?
Thankfully he said 'engaged', or there'd have been an uproar at him ignoring the married couple in the hockey team...
Why are we being to Brazilian propaganda from their U23 football team?
What is this crap?
Well I'd have said that Joyce won that by a long way. I guess we don't know what the judges are looking for or whether it comes in brown envelopes.
Sorry, was far behind on that - but glad to see Claire picking him up straight away. Much like Gabby had to do for Brendan last night when he said that no-one is athletics had ever been knighted.
the BBC are REALLY trying to help these ignoramuses out.
John Inverdale is just awful. Tie between him and Ryan Lochte for Cunt of the Games 2016.
We need a heroes and villains of the games topic.
Clare Balding was interviewing Lulato Muhammed last night and said he was the most successful British competitor in Taekwondo - he reminded her about Jade Jones and that yes he was the most successful MALE competitor.
Is he fucking MAD? I swear if a woman had made so many factual errors they'd have been exposed in the press for being incompetent.
Also what about the Chinese divers that got engaged ON THE PODIUM? Though to be fair I don't think they were Gold medalists.
What a sexist monster.
I watched the highlights of that match again just yesterday.
Victoria Pendleton is a ridiculously attractive woman.
Inverdale being demolished on twitter.
Where has Pendleton been before today, I was expecting a bit of commentary from her.
Agggh!! FFS Claire!! What is wrong with these presenters?!
Who does Bryony Page look like? Sinead from B*witched?
I can't quite put my finger on it.
She was on the Radio.
Kate Richardson-Walsh will be the flagbearer for team GB tonight.
Half of Azerbajian's medals were won by athletes who were paid to switch allegiance to them. It's a complete pisstake, one Qatar and Bahrain are also guilty of.
I am feeling a huge Olympics shaped hole tonight.
This closing ceremony is really quite boring and repetitive.
There will be a Japanese culture segment to enjoy soon.
I bloody hope so. I feel like I've been watching a drubken, tuneless conga line for half an hour.
Oh, I think we've missed the passing on to Tokyo. Well that was blah.
I remember the handover to Brazil feeling completely flat in London, so I can't imagine you've missed too much.
Oh I thought that was great. It made me optimistic for how Rio would do their ceremonies, but they never delivered after that handover.
I thought the Rio handover was pants. Fucking carnivals.
I thought the 10 minute carnival for the handover was good, but I wasn't expecting that to be their ENTIRE culture to showcase, resulting in a 2 hour carnival of the same fucking monotonous tune playing over and over again.
I know, all they had to do was a Corona medley, this and call it day:
I didn't see the closing ceremony, but the Mario pipe was fun.
I think the handovers have been a bit underwhelming since the frankly hilarious Beijing-London handover with Boris.
Katherine Grainger's moustache was looking a bit severe on the BBC just now. Still love her though.
