Britain enjoyed a golden hat-trick in the Olympic Stadium on Saturday night when Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford won their events inside one dramatic hour.
Jessica Ennis's victory in the heptathlon, celebrated by fans in her home city of Sheffield, was sealed when she won the 800m in a sprint finish.
Greg Rutherford's gold followed shortly afterwards, with a surprise victory in the long jump, which he described as the "most amazing feeling in the world".
He was followed by Mo Farah who danced for joy around the track after winning the 10,000m, hailing it as "the best moment of my life".
While these fans enjoyed the success in the stadium, earlier there had been glory at other venues with two gold medals in rowing - the men's coxless fours and the women's lightweight double sculls - and one for the women's team pursuit in the velodrome.
It was the best day for British gold medals in one day since 1908. Team GB now boast 14 gold, seven silver and eight bronze and are in third place after China and the US in the medal table.
London Games chairman Lord Coe described Saturday's events as the "the greatest night of British athletics".
Famous faces in the stadium included Sir Paul McCartney, who had earlier led a rendition of Hey Jude in the velodrome.
