    Are there any rumours of dodginess in the new 10k record for that Ethopian? To run the second half in world record time for the 5k arouses my suspicions, especially after those dead eyed Chinawomen from the mid 90s.

    I think that he's far enough ahead that he can't finish worse than second, but there's still more races to come so the medal doesn't go on the board yet.

    I very much enjoyed the slowmo of the British rider (not sure which one) blatantly shouting "FUCK YEAH"

    About 6-1, apparently. Rutherford, Farah & Ennis all favourites to win tomorrow.

    Pissing myself at the the O'Donavan brothers who feel they're missing out on the celebrations back in Ireland because they're stuck out in Rio! :D

    That AUS vs GB cycling was pretty exciting.

    ABS! And clearing 1.98m in the high jump. POWER!

    I'm going to walk around like this... for a while.

    Mixed Doubles Wimbledon Champion Heather Watson you mean?

    And it was Murray who dropped serve in the second set to lose them the match... just saying.

    Greg Rutherford qualifies for the final, only just though. He'll have a bit of work to do tonight.

    That seems entirely likely at this stage.
