Tuesday was yet another historic day for Great Britain's athletes at London 2012. With five days to go, they beat their target, which was to win more medals than in Beijing.

There were four more gold medals, including Britain's first ever in dressage and triathlon. Two bronze and two silver medals took the medal total to 48.

Sir Chris Hoy was confirmed as Britain's most successful Olympian ever after winning his sixth gold medal at the end of a glorious week for the cycling team.
