  1. Post update

    That's all we've got time for this evening from the Paralympics in Rio.

    Do join us again from 08:00 BST on Sportsday, where we will be bringing you all the action from day seven of the Games. 

  2. Watch GB's Wylie win

    Men's S9 50m freestyle

    Not bad for a Paralympic debutant...

  3. Prepare the battlefield

    Wheelchair rugby

    The GB's wheelchair rugby team have arrived in Rio...

  4. Bronze medal - Jordanne Whiley and Lucy Shuker

    Women's wheelchair doubles

    What a way to finish off for the evening.

    Britain's Jordanne Whiley and Lucy Shuker win their bronze medal match against Japan's Miho Nijo and Yuii Kamji. 

    Whiley and Kamji are actually doubles partners in the Grand Slams, and came away with the women's trophy at Wimbledon this summer.

    But this time the medal goes to the British pair, who win 6-3 0-6 6-1. 

  5. When Libby Clegg made it two golds in Rio...

  6. #paintitgold

    Will Bayley, the 28-year-old who won table tennis gold in Rio on Monday, has set his home village a bit of a challenge...

  7. Millward grabs gold

    Her wait for a Paralympic gold medal is finally over.

    Watch Steph Millward, in her third Games, win the women's S8 100m backstroke in style

  8. A new record...

    GB duo win quad double bronze

    It's a scorcher out in Rio, and the British pair of Andy Lapthorne and Jamie Burdekin have just come through the longest ever wheelchair tennis match in Paralympic history to win bronze in the quad doubles.

    After four hours and 25 minutes on court, they're a bit tired...

    "I played a long one last night so I know how to make it hard for myself," Lapthone told Channel 4.

    "We've had unreal support from people. I've been telling everyone I'm ready for this. Anyone who didn't think we had the stamina has been proved wrong."

    Burdekin, holding back the tears, added: "He dragged me through hell out there. I'm taking a medal home to my kids, I can't believe it."

  9. Gold number 34

  10. Wylie celebrates Paralympic gold


    Elizabeth Hudson

    BBC Sport's Paralympics reporter in Rio

    There's a broad grin on the face of Matt Wylie as he is interviewed by Kate Grey and it is going to take a while for it to shift.

    Moments after Libby Clegg wins gold at the athletics, the 19-year-old Mackem (don't call him a Geordie!) triumphs by 0.04 seconds in the pool to become Britain's latest gold medallist.

    "Not bad, was it?" he says, still in disbelief. "To get the touch at the end was fantastic. I've focussed on the event so much this year and it has paid off."

    Although he trains next to the Stadium of Light in Sunderland, he admits that he isn't much of a football fan!

  11. Over at the tennis centre...

    Women's wheelchair doubles bronze medal match

    It was all going so well for Jordanne Whiley and Lucy Shuker in the women's wheelchair tennis doubles bronze medal match.

    The GB pair took the first set 6-3 against Yui Kamji and Miho Nijo, but the Japanese duo have fought back in style and lead 5-0 in the second. 

    This one looks to be going to the wire...

  12. Think lucky thoughts...


  13. The golden hour

    ...well, actually, make that the golden half-hour for GB.

    Steph Millward, Libby Clegg and Matt Wylie take the team's day six haul up to six gold medals, and the overall total to 34.


  14. Millward's golden moment


    Elizabeth Hudson

    BBC Sport's Paralympics reporter in Rio

    Stephanie Millward is one of the most positive people you could hope to meet and her determination has finally been rewarded with a Paralympic gold medal.

    She came to disability sport late after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis as a teenager and now in her third Games after coming so close in Beijing and London she is on top of the podium.

    She has a similar story to cycling gold medallist Kadeena Cox in that she was a talented athlete who never gave up on her sporting dreams but still has to deal with her condition on a daily basis.

  15. GB congratulate Clegg

  16. Gold medal - Matt Wylie

    Men's S9 50m freestyle

    Matt Wylie wins it by a fingertip over 50m in the pool. Incredible race. 

    And boy was it close! Wylie wins by just four hundredths of a second ahead of Australia's Timothy Disken. 

    That's two golds in the space of a minute for ParalympicsGB as Wylie's time comes through at 25.95 seconds. 

    What a way to win your first ever Paralympics medal.

  17. Gold medal - Libby Clegg

    Women's T11 200m final

    GB's Libby Clegg makes it two gold medals in Rio! 

    There was an air of anti-climax, following Terezinha Guilhermina's disqualification, but Clegg won't care. She's a double Paralympic champion - the 100m and 200m titles are hers.

    She also bagged a new Paralympic record alongside guide Chris Clarke, finishing in 24.51 seconds.

    Cuiqing Liu of China takes silver and compatriot Guohua Zhou wins bronze.

  18. False start...

    We have to re-start the T11 200m. Someone's gone too early. 

    And it's a huge blow for the home crowd. The defending champion, Brazil's Terezinha Guilhermina, is disqualified.


    Terezinha Guilhermina
  19. 'Keep on fighting'

    GB's Millward wins first gold at Paralympics

    Steph Millward on BBC Radio 5 live: "Eighteen years of trying and here I am a gold medal at last. 

    "I'm hopefully proof to people that as long as you keep on fighting, it will be worth it in the end. I've tried millions of times to be at the top and I've done it."

  20. The runner and the guide

    Women's T11 200m final

    Ahead of Libby Clegg and Chris Clarke’s race, BBC Radio 5live summarisers and Olympic sprinters Jeanette Kwakye and Allison Curbishley tried their hand at guided running.

    Former guide and Paralympics GB coach Job King talked them through the relationship between runner and guide, and how they communicate mid-race.

    Find out how they get on on 5 live Sport in the build up to the race.
