The Sailing crews have a rest day today (and therefore so do I....). I'll be back with updates throughout the day (apart from between 4pm and 6pm as I watch Liverpool give Arsenal a sound thrashing). Until then....

GOLF: Seamus Power is making a move...and it's a serious move...He's -4 through 5 holes today, and is now -5, alongside Padraig Harrington, who has yet to tee off. He's now just 4 shots off Bronze Medal position. It may be too little too late, but it's a hell of a burst. ALL POWER TO YA SEAMUS!

ATHLETICS: Marathon Update for all three runners, right here. How efficient.

GOLF: Ummm, you know what I just said two minutes ago about Seamus Power? Yeah, scratch that... HE'S NOW -5 THRU 6 HOLES AND IN A TIE FOR FOURTH.... HE'S TEARING UP THE COURSE!!!!!! GO ON SEAMUS!!!!!!

ATHLETICS: Movin' on up.... Excellent stuff.

GOLF: SWEET MOTHER OF CHRIST... SEAMUS POWER HAS REACHED -7 EARLY ON THE BACK NINE... HE'S 2 SHOTS OFF BRONZE....

BOXING: Michael Conlan is about to enter the ring for the first time at these Olympics. The World, European and Commonwealth Champion has one medal left to get to complete the set. I'll bring you all the updates LIVE....

ATHLETICS: Marathon Update. Fionnuala McCormack is having a STORMER.....
