Morning one and all. It's the final night of the swimming. I'm Howard Crossland. Let's get down to business.

First up we've got GB's very own Fran Halsall aiming to the be the world's fastest female swimmer in the Women's 50m Freestyle final. No dozing otherwise you'll miss it. Then we've got the opposite end of the spectrum, the enduring Men's 1500m Freestyle final.

Then we're wrapping up with the 4x100m medley relays - featuring gold medalists Simone Manuel, Lilly King (USA) and Adam Peaty (GB, woohoo!), amongst others. And some bloke called Mike who I've heard is not too bad at this swimming malarkey.

Phelps, of course, going for gold number 23. Still not a patch on this fella.

It's time. Women's 50m Freestyle Final.
