    And what a way to do it, utterly dominant pulling out a lead of around a length by the 250m mark. Going into the final 500 they were around 3-4 lengths clear of anyone else, incredible effort!

    I'd hope for at least one more today from the two guys in the breaststroke tonight. Maybe Bradley Wiggins and the girls are an outside chance I think in the time trial.

    Yes, absolutely brilliant. We won't win many golds at these Olympics, despite the hype. But we can rejoice each one. These games are great. Loving every minute.
