  1. See you soon

    And that is a wrap from the overnight team at BBC Sport towers. Fear not though for the early team are mere minutes away from arriving.

    See you all tomorrow for more sport. 

  2. What's happening on day seven?

    After a golden start in the velodrome on Thursday night, Sir Bradley Wiggins will look to become the first Briton to win eight Olympic medals when he goes in the men's team pursuit.

    Today also sees the start of the athletics with 42-year-old Jo Pavey becoming the first Briton to compete at five consecutive Games in track and field.

    At the Lagoa, Helen Glover and Heather Stanning are attempting to maintain an unbeaten record stretching back to 2009.

    Meanwhile, Team GB, led by Charlotte Dujardin and her horse Valegro, are well placed to secure a medal in the dressage.

  3. Swimming

    Here's an unusual event, a joint gold-medal ceremony for Simone Manuel and Penny Oleksiak. That means no silver, and two national anthems.

    I don't want to cause a diplomatic incident but the US was played before Canada. 

  4. Cseh beats Phelps to first in semi!

    Hungary's Laszlo Cseh wins his semi in 51.57 seconds whilst Michael Phelps takes second just 33 minutes after his gold winning performance in the 200m IM.

  6. Swimming

    Adrian Moorhouse

    1988 Olympic 100m breaststroke champion on BBC TV

    If Joseph Schooling does that tomorrow he might not just get a medal he might get the medal. 

  7. Swimming

    Oleksiak and Manual both take Gold in dramatic tie!

    Shock, confusion and history!

    After a short period of switching between who had won, both Simone Manuel and Penny Oleksiak get themselves gold medals over the much fancied Australian Cate Campbell in a remarkable race. 

    History has been made as Simone Manuel becomes the first black female gold medalist in the swimming pool.

    And amazingly, almost most insignificantly, Canada's Penny Oleksiak is only 16 years old.

  8. Swimming

    Men's 100m butterfly

    Joseph Schooling of Singapore pops in an Asian record with a 50.83 to blast home in the second semi!

    Swim that time in the final and he might win it! Chad le Clos is second. 

  9. 'It was hard not to get distracted'

    GB's James Guy after finishing seventh in the men's 100m butterfly semi: "Michael Phelps is the GOAT (greatest of all time) and he was beside me so it was hard not to get distracted. I think I got a bit cold in the cool room - we were waiting so long for Michael's presentation. I've had a busy week so far and then back tomorrow before an evening off, which is quite nice."

    Adrian Moorhouse

    James Guy swam really well and it's great news for the medley relay.

  12. Swimming

    Men's 100m butterfly

    Laszlo Cseh wins it, Michael Phelps was nowhere with 20m to go but finishes second!

    Konrad Czerniak was third, James Guy faded into seventh. 

  13. Swimming

    Men's 100m butterfly

    Konrad Czerniak out very quickly in lane two, Michael Phelps is fourth at the turn...

  14. Swimming

    Men's 100m butterfly

    I think Michael Phelps is just about dry from his last race. Ready?

  15. 'Guy should go for it'

    Men's 100m butterfly semis

    Rebecca Adlington

    Double Olympic gold-medal winning swimmer on BBC One

    This morning James Guy was the second fastest Brit ever in this event. This will be his eighth race this week, but when you see someone like Michael Phelps swimming about a million, James is only 20 so why not go for it?

  16. Swimming

    Men's 100m butterfly

    James Guy is bouncing in the call room, waiting for his chance. You don't get to swim next to Michael Phelps very often. Go well!
