I find it quite amusing that Taylah Robertson is guaranteed a bronze before the Games even start.

That was a great opening ceremony. How come they've sent Hazel Irvine to Australia when both she and Clare were in Salford for the Winter Olympics? Hazel has got to come back and do a 17-day stint in Sheffield straight after this.

That was quite harsh in DQing Proud in the 50m fly. Chad Le Clos, his training partner that he shouldn't have been disqualified. That is bizarre.

England have won three golds in gymnastics, cycling and swimming with Max Whitlock helping his team win in the artistic gymnastics team final, Sophie Thornhill and pilot Helen Scott won gold in the blind and visually impaired (B&VI) sprint and Aimee Willmott in the 400m individual medley.

Wish the BBC would update the medal table. They put England top but with just 1 gold medal. They have since updated it, but not to add England or Scotland's gold medal, just to add 1 gold for Australia which now puts them top? what is going on?

Just caught up with the gymnastics... What a dominating performance from England! I suspect they're going to have a clean sweep of the Golds in AA and individual finals

Elinor Barker looked really good in the points race, a great effort and great to see her get the gold!

what a great throw from Nick Miller, good enough for Gold in many World Champs and Olympic Finals.

Great hammer competition overall, good to see it getting decent respect on the Red Button channel at least.
