With Great Britain’s track cyclists once again showing their dominance in the velodrome, we look next to Jason Kenny and Callum Skinner in the men's sprint final for another spectacular show of track supremacy. Kenny was the winner of this event in London 2012 and has already won gold in Rio in the men’s team pursuit, alongside Skinner.
Andy Murray saw off Kei Nishikori of Japan with a convincing 6-1 6-4 to reach today’s final. He meets Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina in the fight to replicate his success at London 2012 and win back-to-back Olympic gold medals.
After a high pressure performance didn’t go his way in the men’s team event, Louis Smith will get back on the pommel horse for the individual final. He goes head-to-head with teammate and All-Around Rio bronze medallist Max Whitlock, who qualified just ahead of him in first place, but both must watch out for Japan's Kenzo Shirai. Whitlock also qualified fourth for the floor final, with Kristian Thomas also going through in seventh.
In sailing, Nick Dempsey has his final race in the RS:X, but the pressure is off Dempsey given that he cannot be caught by the field, nor can he catch the current leader, and therefore he is guaranteed a silver medal at the end of the day. His counterpart Bryony Shaw has more to do, as she is in eighth going into the women’s RS:X final.
It is the final day of golf’s inaugural appearance at the Olympic Games. Justin Rose is the clubhouse leader on -12 and looks in a good position for a place on the podium, holding a six shot lead over fourth place, where three players are on -6. He leads the overall standings by one stroke from Sweden's Henrik Stenson.
