Brilliant gold medal for Ethan Hayter in the Omnium at the Europeans. What an exciting young talent. I was particularly impressed with the way he rode the Points Race.

Gold!!! for Matt Walls in the men's elimination! Very mature ride for a debutant up against some well-established riders!

Absolute brilliance from Asher-Smith in the 100m, 10.85 equalling the fastest time this year. It was a sprint double with Zhanal Hughes winning in 9.95 and Reece Percod getting silver.

I saw both 100m finals last night. Great to see Dina Asher-Smith win the gold medal,she is always so bubbly in her interviews and Zharnel Hughes has partly made up for his disqualification at the Commonwealth Games.

Adam Peaty set a new championship record to retain the 50m breaststroke title and win his third gold medal. What a swimmer he is.

Johnson-Thompson has let a chance to open a gap against Thiam go begging in the high jump of the heptathlon.

Watched this on iPlayer - the way riders were just completely falling away in the later sprints showed the quality on show there. Congrats to Walls.

The commentators were a bit early celebrating Alicia Blagg's victory in the diving there, Grace Reid has just snatched it from under her nose! Can't complain about a GB 1/2 though tongue.gif

Poor Salpeter there, thinking that she was on the final lap and burning herself out too early. Congrats to McColgan on the silver though.
