  1. Ordinary, but extraordinary

    Jonny and Alistair Brownlee

    BBC Sport chief sports writer Tom Fordyce helped the Brownlees write their autobiography in the wake of their gold-bronze success at London 2012.

    Who better to talk through them turning the Rio race into a family affair? Nobody that's who.

    "There is so much that is ordinary about the Brownlee brothers. Breakfast at Alistair's is large bowls of own-brand discount supermarket cereal. Jonny's favourite tea is fish and chips, eaten Yorkshire style with a side-plate of white bread," he writes in his review of the brothers' latest success.

    "Jonny likes to relax by watching Leeds United at Elland Road or Leeds Rhinos at Headingley. Alistair, sufferer supreme in his sport, likes to watch rom-coms. When he went out to buy a new car, he promised to buy an Aston Martin and came back with a Volvo."

  2. Brothers in arms


    The nation's favourite brothers, the Brownlees, discuss their gold-silver haul in the triathlon in BBC Sport's Rio Postcard.

    Jade Jones' success was Wales' fourth gold of the Games and she was roared on into the early hours by a crowd of 500 watching back home in her hometown of Flint.

  6. She's done it again...


    What a moment for Great Britain's Jade Jones.

    At the age of 23, she's become a double Olympic champion.

    Jones, from Wales, successfully defended her title from London 2012 by beating Spain's Eva Calvo Gomez in the -57kg final on Thursday.

    "I'm still young so to be double Olympic champion already is crazy to be honest," she told BBC Sport.

    "I started crying before the semi-final because I was just so nervous and felt so much pressure. But I pulled it off when it mattered so I'm just so happy."

  8. Gemili just short

    Adam Gemili

    In Bolt's slipstream there was heartache for Great Britain's Adam Gemili who lost out on bronze as he finished just 0.003 of a second behind France's Christoph LeMaitre.

    "So close, but yet so far. I'm gutted. That's probably the worst way to lose a medal. To finish fourth and it went down to thousandths of a second," he said.

    "I should have kept my form at the end better. He out-dipped me at the end. I threw myself at the line but it wasn't enough. 

    "I gave it my all, literally gave everything I could. It's going to take me a little time to get over that."

  9. 'Greatness comes so easily to him'


    Click below to listen to BBC Radio 5 live's commentary as Usain Bolt won the men's 200m to claim his second gold medal at Rio 2016, his eighth at an Olympics. 

    "Greatness comes so easily to him," said Mike Costello on the mic. “He leaves another indelible memory on the greatest show on Earth.”

    Former British sprinter Darren Campbell added: "Thank you, thank you, thank you for blessing us with your greatness."

  10. Living legend

    As well as the usual Lightning Bolt pose, Usain Bolt apparently adopted the Silencer celebration that NBA star LeBron James - who is not part of the United States team in Rio - made famous.

  11. Champion supreme

    Usain Bolt cantered home clear of the rest in last night's 200m final to complete a sprint -double for the third successive Olympic Games.

    His winning time was a comparatively sluggish 19.72 - slower than his winning times in Beijing and London (19.30 and 19.32) and well short of his own world record of 19.19.

    But this is the fine print of a legacy that has already been carved deep and big in the history of the sport.

    Still the undisputed greatest.
