Brilliant performance from Galal Yafai to get the boxing gold medal, well deserved.

When was Brum's last gold medal before today? Can't think of any since Jane Sixsmith in hockey.

Great run by Josh Kerr in the 1500m 3:29 something. Thatís 13.9 seconds for 100 metres , consecutively, 15 times ! Try doing one 100 metre sprint in that time and then try to imagine it . Unbelievable.

I always think the Modern Pentathlon medal table provides a better indication of which nation is best.

Show jumping? Surely she was born to run?

Surprised you would place so much stock in a sport that involves "horse torturing".

Judging by yesterday it seemed like the horses were torturing the jockeys, to be fair.

Headline writers prefer Born to Ride when writing about Ms Springsteen. I'll bet we'll see more of them tomorrow.
