  1. Cheers, thanks, see ya, bye...

    Thanks for being with us on Sportsday, but it's time to bring Tuesday's edition to a close.

    If you're only just joining us (where have you been?!) here's a short summary of what we've learned today...

    Have a good evening, we'll see you again on Wednesday from 08:00 BST.

  2. Get Involved - unusual encounters with Olympians


  3. That was intense...

    Rio 2016

    Wow, that Facebook live was intense. What was meant to be a chat with David Condon and Dan Fox ended up with us seeing emergency goalkeeper practice with Maddie Hinch and inspecting bruises on the legs of others. Oh, we also met an obscure Brazilian rodent.

    On a serious note, it seems Team GB's hockey players are ready. They've gone through the obscure scenarios that may arise in a match but are highly unlikely.

    George Pinner

    Sam Quek tells me the women's team have some tricks up their sleeve. George Pinner - the men's keeper known as The Great Wall of Ipswich and pictured here on the right - says the intensity of last night's friendly win against the Netherlands was expected and useful.

    He adds the pitch at Deodoro feels exactly like what they train on near London. So all is well, aside from the bruises that is.

  4. Hibernian to contest Lennon's five-match Uefa ban


    Neil Lennon

    Hibernian are to appeal against the five-match European ban given to manager Neil Lennon.

    Uefa's control, ethics and disciplinary body imposed the punishment for "acts of violence against the referee".

  5. One-Day Cup latest


    Essex must wait to see if they are into the last eight of the One-Day Cup after rain prevented any play against Gloucestershire at Bristol.

    The visitors won the toss with the match already reduced to 38 overs per side, before the rain returned as the players took to the field.

    The result leaves Essex on 10 points, but they will be knocked out if Kent, Middlesex and Hampshire all win their final games in the South Group.  

    You can follow the latest from the One-Day Cup right here.

  7. Get Involved - unusual encounters with Olympians


    Pauline Clark: Hubby works for our local council, he went to do an inspection for a building warrant but the person named on the application wasn't in, his daughter was though. Hubby recognised the face but couldn't quite work out who it was, it was the very smiley Hannah Miley!!

    Jabed: Walked into my barbers to see Adam Gemili getting a fresh trim. I had no idea who he was.

  8. Ice cool athletes

    Rio 2016

    It's funny how life works. Aleksandar Aleksandrov, pictured here on the right, was a keen basketball player growing up in Bulgaria until a school visit from a coach prompted him to try rowing. 

    Some 12 years later he's been to an Olympics and when I met him yesterday, cut the figure of a man at ease with a second crack. Alksandrov, now competing for Azerbaijan, could barely tell me what day his event started. Now that's a chilled out guy.

    He's symbolic though. You see athletes all over Rio and they all look relaxed, with body language far removed from the reality that this next fortnight can define the last four years. It makes me wonder when it hits them, the reality, the fear of failure, the pressure. The night before?

    Judgement day is looming. I'm keen to see if later this week we see a shift in mood. Will the game face suddenly shine through across Rio?

    England batting coach Mark Ramprakash details the conversation he had with Joe Root ahead of his double century "masterclass" against Pakistan at Old Trafford.

    Root scored a career-best 254 off 406 balls as England won the match by 330 runs.

    In the previous Test at Lord's, the 25-year-old twice surrendered his wicket with loose shots.

  15. Beaumont primed for super-sub role again

    Graeme Thomas' anger is understandable given the GB men's quad crew have a good chance of reaching the podium and his parents have already flown out to Rio. 

    But his withdrawal through illness mirrors the Lucerne World Cup in May where another member of the crew, Peter Lambert, withdrew with illness and Jack Beaumont turned super-sub to help the quad finish second behind Australia. 

    Beaumont has already flown out to join the team on Monday and will match the achievement of his dad, Peter, who raced at the 1988 Olympics. 

  16. Thomas 'doesn't agree with decision'

    GB men's quadruple sculls rower Graeme Thomas didn't even get a chance to get wet at the Olympic venue of Lagoa and now he's going home because of a virus, picked up before he arrived in Brazil. 

    The 27 year-old said: "Seven years of dedication and it's all over before taking a stroke in anger. I don't agree with the decision, but I don't think anyone in my shoes would. As an athlete you always back yourself.

    "I wish my friends and crew all the best, I still believe they can do it without me."

  17. Vertonghen on the comeback trail...

  18. The final prep

    Swimming pool

    The British School has a hockey pitch, 25m pool, gym, you name it. Team GB boxers are here, as are hockey stars, canoe slalom athletes and more.

    This is where the final hard yards are put in. On Saturday it's for real. Team GB's male hockey players meet Belgium, a game which on paper they should win. A good start is crucial.

    One thing to keep an eye on is a change up in rules for this Olympics. Rather than two 35 minute halves hockey is broken down to four 15 minute quarters for the first time. The intensity should increase. Team GB need to handle it.

  20. Anti-doping system needs complete reform - Bach

    Rio 2016

    Thomas Bach

    The way sport deals with drug cheats needs fundamental reform, according to International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach.

    More than 100 Russian athletes have been banned from this summer's Games in the wake of a World Anti-Doping Agency report into state-sponsored doping.

    "We need a full review of the Wada anti-doping system." said Bach.
