Hello and welcome to The National Lottery Live.
The Lotto and Thunderball draws are coming up very soon.
Plus, with just one more day left of the Rio Olympics,
we've seen some astonishing performances from Team GB.
It's almost a shame they have to end.
Ore Oduba has been speaking to Silver medal-winning
rowers, Katherine Grainger and Vicky Thornley and Gold
They'll be pushing the Lotto button too!
That's coming up, but first here's Thunderball!
Start up those machines, please, Julie if you would. Our draw master
tonight is Julie Hamilton. The draws are being overseen by an independent
adjudicator. In the last week over ?2.4 million has been paid out in
Thunderball prizes with more than 426,000 winning tickets. Well done
if you were a winner. Start the draws, please, Jules, if you would.
The first one is about to appear: Now, to the Thunderballs themselves.
There are 14 of those inside our second machine. Which one is it
going to be? There's the answer. That is number six. Here are
tonight's Thunderball numbers again, only this time in ascending order:
Team GB's efforts have been absolutely fantastic out
in Rio, with 15 Bronze, 22 Silver and 26 Gold medals won!
Earlier, Ore spoke to Silver medal winners, Katherine Grainger
and Vicky Thornley and Gold medallist, Helen Glover.
I have been joined by rowing medallists aplenty. Look at this.
Helen Glover, Katherine Grainger and Vicky Thornley. A special moment for
myself. Helen, 2 012 first gold medallists for Great Britain of the
Games am you have done it again. How do you do it? A lot of hard work and
a lot of support. We have the most amazing support system in our coach
Robin. Helen isn't here, she is the other half of the boat. It all comes
together at the Olympics. How long this run go for? Will we see you
with the same colour of medal in 2020? I don't know. Helen and I will
take a break. It's difficult to walk aaway from. Experiencing real-life
would be good for a bit without the pressures of being an athlete. We
want to go away and see how we feel and how much we miss the sport. You
have something important on the horizon. Keep an eye out. Helen
Glover and Katherine Grainger. Katherine, it was Gold, it was such
a relief. This time around you two have been on a crazy journey? I have
been in the boat with the same person leading up to 2012 and it was
about delivering the right result. It's been a challenge in the two
years we've been together. The Silver is something I was immensely
proud of because it's something not everyone thought was possible. The
support in general is so important. Lottery funding has helped you guys
on your journey? Absolutely. We wouldn't be the special out fit we
are without that funding. It makes a difference to our training, recovery
and performance overall. It's vital for us. Absolutely. Great to see you
guys looking wonderful with all the medals. Helen, you have a wedding on
the horizon. I do. Are you looking forward to it? When is the date?
When can we see you? Can we come? It's about three weeks. It's really
surreal. I was looking forward to the Olympics and focussing on that.
I crossed the line thought - I've so.
To do. My mum has pretty. Organised the whole thing. I can
turn up and have a surprise at my own wedding to see what it will be
like. I can't wait to come. My dress is all planned out. All three of you
have an important responsibility. OK. Join us back here in Rio in a
moment for exactly that. Ore Oduba you are not invited to the wedding.
