Just one day of sporting action remains at Rio 2016 and the attention will be on Fort Copacabana where the remaining three British athletes – including reigning champion David Weir – compete in the men’s marathon.

Kirkcaldy’s Derek Rae will be first up in the men’s T46 marathon with the 30-year-old having patiently waited for his time to make his Paralympic debut in Rio. There are then two Brits who will compete in the men’s T54 marathon – Simon Lawson and Weir.

It has already been a busy time for the latter in Rio having competed on the track in the 400m, 1500m, 800m and 4x400m T53/54 relay – although the six-time Paralympic champion will be aiming to sign off on a high as he seeks to defend the title he won at London 2012.

Lawson, like Rae, will also be making his Paralympic Games debut with Sunday his first competitive outing in Rio.

The day then concludes with the Closing Ceremony at the Maracana Stadium, which gets underway at 22.30 BST+1 and 18.30 local time BST and sees the 2016 Paralympic Games officially draw to a close.
