  1. Good night

    The promise of a Usain Bolt world record attempt lingers over the Rio sky as we draw another long day of action to a conclusion.

    You can catch up with anything you may have missed here - but we are signing off for the night.

    Until tomorrow! 

  2. 'Not the end for me'

    Women's long jump

    Jazmin Sawyers, who finished eighth in the long jump final: "I am disappointed. I usually thrive in these environments but it did not happen tonight. It was a solid performance but I feel I am capable of more than that. I am a bit gutted but really proud of myself. I have years, I am 22. I don't feel this is the end for me."

  3. Gatlin not done yet?

    Michael Johnson

    Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC One

    Will we see Justin Gatlin at another championship? I think we will see him in London next year. 

  4. USA trio win women's 100m hurdles final

    Women's 100m hurdles final

    British sisters Cindy Ofili and Tiffany Porter miss out on Olympic 100m hurdles medals as the United States take a clean sweep at Rio 2016. 

  5. 'No respect'

    Denise Lewis

    Olympic heptathlon gold medallist on BBC TV

    I think Justin Gatlin did not pay enough respect to the other guys in the field. We have seen him blast out of the blocks and he didn't do that.

  6. China win gold

    Men's table tennis team event

    Watch here to see how China beat Japan in the men's table tennis team event, taking a clean sweep of the Olympics table tennis competitions for the third straight time.

  7. Get involved #bbcrio2016

    Bill Holland: You could rewire Blackpool illuminations with the amount of bronze #GBR has narrowly missed out on in Rio. Unlucky boys & girls!  

  8. Get involved #bbcrio2016

    ThinkBig33: Tiffany's good. Not sure I'd speak to my sister for about a week if she beat me!  

  9. Bolt to go for the world record?

    Men's 200m final

    Some good news for fans of fast running - Usain Bolt is aiming to go for the 200m record in the final on Thursday night.

    He said: "I definitely think I can try for the world record, I definitely feel that. I need to run efficiently and get into the straight and run the perfect race. If I can run a little more efficiently on the turns. I will be hoping for lane six or seven maybe to be able to run as smooth as I can."

  10. US fans salute Olympic legend Walsh-Jennings

    Kerri-Walsh Jennings adds a bronze medal to her three golds and has still only lost one match at the Olympics as the 38-year old and partner April Ross dominate the third set to win 2-1.

    The pockets of US fans come alive in a heavily Brazilian crowd, and Walsh-Jennings high fives everyone within touching distance. 

    Brazil still have their final against German pair Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst to come. Can they win gold for the first time since 1996?

    US fans
  11. Athletics

    Women's 100m final

    Michael Johnson

    Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC One

    The US is so strong at women's 100m hurdles and has been for a number of years. It was great to see them come through. 

  12. 'Tremendously proud'

    Women's 100m final

    Cindy Ofili after coming fourth, on BBC One: "I came out here to try and get a medal for GB. It was a great race. I can only be happy with this performance. I have had an off-and-on year so I am just happy to almost get a medal."

    Tiffany Porter, who came seventh, tells BBC Sport: "I did my best. It has been a very difficult year for me but to be honest I am very proud of myself and tremendously proud of my sister. I want to see myself succeed but I want to see my sister succeed as well."

  13. World record holder speaks

    Women's 100m hurdles

    To answer my earlier question, world record holder Kendra Harrison did watch the race. And is extremely classy and gracious about it/ 

  14. USA find their grit

    Bronze-medal match

    The United States pair of Kerri-Walsh Jennings (six foot of sunshine) and April 'the boss' Ross might have lost their semi-final to Brazilian duo Agatha Bednarczuk and Barbara Seixes de Freites, and be trailing here after the first set, but they've just pulled back the second against Larissa Franca and Talita Rocha here to make it 1-1.

    That was Walsh-Jennings' first ever Olympic defeat to miss out on a fourth consecutive gold so, in front of a partisan crowd, she ain't going down without a fight.  

  15. Get involved


    Matthew Vernon: American 1-2-3 in the 110m hurdles. And they're still not the best hurdlers in the US. #WheresKendra

  16. Athletics

    Women's 100m hurdles

    Tiffany Porter, who finished seventh, draped a consoling arm around her younger sister after Cindy Ofili was confirmed in fourth place. 

  17. Jamaica's Elaine Thompson does the double

    Women's 200m final

    Elaine Thompson just holds off Netherlands' Dafne Schippers to add another gold to her tally following her victory in the 100m.

    GB's Dina Asher-Smith comes in a creditable fifth, and at only 20 years of age, it is fair to say there is plenty to come.

  18. 'My light has shined'

    Women's 200m

    Double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson: "It is very special and welcoming feel for me. Watching Veronica Campbell Brown, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and then putting my name there is an amazing feeling. I think my light has shined."

  19. 'A proper battle'

    Colin Jackson

    Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC TV

    The reaction here in the commentary box was very different to that on the track when the result came through. 

    A great result for the Americans, they were very dominant. A great race by Cindy, to be the first of the Europeans is very good indeed.

    It was a proper battle. 

  20. Another fourth

    Women's 100m hurdles

    Another fourth for GB as Cindy Ofili is pipped for bronze by just 0.02 seconds.
