    Phenomenal from Justin Rose and Max Whitlock. Should be another gold from Murray and a 1-2 guaranteed in men's cycling sprint. What a day.

    I think there may be a few chances in the athletics later too

    Forget #supersaturday, all about #supersunday

    Another half dozen decent gold chances during the week too.

    Could get 9 today then.

    How are we predicted to do in the womens equestrian?
    I don't know I think that's more jammy's sport, I'm to northern for equestrian.

    Up here watching that is enough to be ostracised from the city.

    I didn't realise there were any gender segregated equestrian events, we have a decent chance for a gold in the dressage tomorrow, even higher chance of a gold, one of ours and one of the Germans are very close together at the top.

    Jumping we may get something, but probably not

    Isn't it a 5 set match just for the final?

    They've been playing 2 hours here and just near wrapping up second set, and this rate of going- its looking like 5 sets.

    Plus we have the medal ceremony, if match is shorter, we could be waiting till then to see it!

    Was unaware it was 5 sets for the final. The Brazilians clearly need to work on their booing, maybe they should switch the tennis and boxing crowds.

    The later the better. The first set was flimsy but that last set was fantastic.

    More please!

    Swapping the competitors around would be better

    I can't help but think DP will tire as the match goes on, but yes- this is set to be a good one!
