  1. Post update

    That's it, no more. We've run out of medals to hand out in Rio.

    All that's left to do is bring you some brilliant coverage of the closing ceremony.

    Join us from 23:30 BST for all the glitz, glitter, fireworks and probably more glitter.

  2. The final standings

    Here's how the final medal table looks at the Rio Paralympics.

    China are miles out in front with 239 - including a huge 107 golds - and ParalympicsGB easily claim second spot with 147.

    Ukraine finish third, just like they did in London.

  4. Remembering Golbarnezhad

    Bahman Golbarnezhad

    A minute's silence will take place during the closing ceremony to remember Bahman Golbarnezhad, following his death on Saturday.   

    The 48-year-old Iranian para-cyclist suffered cardiac arrest after an incident on a "mountainous stretch" of the men's C4-5 road race.

    The married father of one later died in hospital.

    The Iranian flag is also being flown at half mast in the Paralympic village.

  5. Cox flagbearer at closing ceremony

    Won cycling and athletics gold medals in Rio

    Earlier, double Rio gold-medallist Kadeena Cox, who won titles in athletics and cycling, was announced as ParalympicsGB flagbearer.

    The 25-year-old is the first Briton to win titles in two sports at the same Games since Seoul 1988.

    As flagbearer, Cox will represent one of the most successful British Paralympic teams in history, having ensured their best medal haul since 1988.

    Join us for live text coverage from 23:30 BST.

  6. Gold medal - Australia

    Wheelchair rugby

    Delight for Australia, they have successfully defended their title, beating USA 59-58 in over-time, an epic encounter.

    And that, my friends, is that. No more medals in Rio!

    Australia celebrate
  7. Gold medal - Iran

    Sitting volleyball

    Six-times world champions Iran have won a sixth Paralympic title, winning the fourth set 25-15 to beat defending champions Bosnia and Herzegovina 3-1 in a match lasting one hour 34 minutes.

    It must be an emotional win for the Iranian team, following the death of para-cyclist Bahman Golbarnezhad on Saturday.

  9. Gold medal - Lihong Zou

    Women's T54 marathon

    Wow, wow, wow! Firm favourite Tatyana McFadden is pipped into the silver medal position by China's Lihong Zou!

    The duo both clock a Paralympic record of 1:38.44 but Zou just snatches the gold - her first Paralympic medal in this event but third in Rio, adding to a gold and bronze on the track.

    McFadden brings her Rio tally up to six - made up of four golds and two silvers.

    Fellow American Amanda McGregory takes the bronze.

  10. Photo finish

    Women's T54 marathon

    We were sort of joking about a photo finish in the women's marathon, but it's actually happened!

    It's between Tatyana McFaden and Lihong Zou for the gold...

  11. Gold medal match stays level

    Wheelchair rugby

    Still they cannot separate them in the gold medal match, 54-54 between Australia and USA after the first period of over-time.

  12. Rae pulls out

    Men's T46 marathon

    Great Britain's Derek Rae pulled out of the T46 men's marathon in the extreme Rio heat earlier today. The 30-year-old Scot was fifth at the 25km mark and had moved one place further up the field before withdrawing from the event just before the 30km point.

    Women's T54 marathon

    Ermm...anyone for a photo finish?

    As it stands, there's only one second between first and eighth place in the women's event!

    Sandra Graf is in the gold medal position at the moment, so we could be seeing another gold for Switzerland following on from Hug.   

  14. Gold medal match all square

    Wheelchair rugby

    We're into extra-time in the gold medal match as Australia and USA finish level at 49-49.

  15. Gold medal - Marcel Hug

    Men's T54 marathon

    The silver bullet takes gold! 

    Marcel Hug of Switzerland powers ahead of Kurt Fearnley in the final 100m and snatches the victory in 1:26.16 - one second clear of his rival.

    That's the second gold medal of the Games for 30-year-old Hug, after his win in the 800m. 

    Australian Fearnley claims silver and a 13th Paralympic medal at the age of 35. 

    Gyu Dae Kim of South Korea takes bronze, finishing 3:52 seconds behind Hug. Simon Lawson from ParalympicsGB finishes 14th.

  16. Post update

    Men's T54 marathon

    The leading men - Marcel Hug and Kurt Fearnley - are coming down the Copacabana strip for the final time - around 800m.

    Who's got the strength to see it out after 26 miles?!

  17. Iran back in front

    Sitting volleyball

    Iran regain the lead in the gold medal match, securing the third set 25-18 against Bosnia and Herzegovina.

  18. Closing day delight for Brazil

    Sitting volleyball bronze medal match

    There was a marathon of a different kind in the sitting volleyball bronze medal match. It lasted two hours and 21 minutes, resulting in a delay to the gold medal match, but Brazil emerged victorious, beating Egypt by the narrowest of margins 117-116.

  19. Post update

    Women's T54 marathon

    It's still really, really close in the women's event. There's eight athletes vying for a space on the podium.

    Here's the timings from the 30km mark: 

    1. Lihong Zou - 1:08.52
    2. Susannah Scaroni - 1:08.53
    3. Wakako Tsuchida - 1:08.53
    4. Manuela Schaer - 1:08.54
    5. Sandra Graf - 1:08.54
    6. Shirley Reilly - 1:08.55
    7. Tatyana McFadden - 1:08.55
    8. Amanda McGregory - 1:08.55
  20. Post update

    Men's T54 marathon

    Marcel Hug, the 800m champion, and two-time marathon champion Kurt Fearnley don't look like they're going to be caught. 

    The duo are level-pegging at the 35km mark, clocking 1:10.55. 

    It looks like there's a third athlete coming up behind them, but it looks like he's a lapped rider. 

    Could we be heading for a sprint finish?
