The Olympic flame burning brightly in the stadium. A team gold medals

:01:16.:01:21.

were on offer today, and we will be reliving some of those incredible

:01:21.:01:27.

stories. The sport carries on, happening live across the capital.

:01:27.:01:33.

We will be going live to the ExCel Arena later for Anthony Joshua's

:01:33.:01:38.

quarter-final bout. The live-action at this point is on the red button.

:01:38.:01:43.

You have the best of both worlds on the Olympics tonight - the big

:01:43.:01:49.

stories, and top-quality sport as it happens. Talking of top-quality,

:01:59.:02:03.

checkout tonight's guest list. This is a great performance by the

:02:03.:02:09.

youngest British boxer ever to win a medal. Kelly Holmes, going for

:02:09.:02:15.

two gold medals. It will be an historic second gold. Kelly Holmes

moments so far? It has to be super Saturday. The you can't say the

Queen jumping out of the helicopter. Turning the silver medal to a gold

:02:53.:02:59.

medal earlier. A our viewers may not know that yet! Pretend you

:02:59.:03:06.

didn't hear that. This is how we are going to take you to midnight.

:03:06.:03:11.

Would Britain be jumping for joy down at Greenwich? Ask him, he will

:03:11.:03:19.

tell you. At the Velodrome, Jason Kenny was looking for gold tonight.

:03:19.:03:24.

More on the track, as the fourth day of that Mattocks sees Dai

:03:24.:03:30.

Greene going for glory in the 400m hurdles. The greatest gymnast Great

:03:30.:03:35.

Britain has ever produced, Beth Tweddle was going for a medal in

:03:35.:03:44.

the uneven bars. Quarter-final action with super-heavyweight

:03:44.:03:49.

boxing here at 11:30pm. We will be starting with horse power - Great

:03:49.:03:58.

Britain have not won a medal since 1984 in Team showjumping, but they

:03:58.:04:00.

1984 in Team showjumping, but they went in in silver-medal position.

:04:00.:04:05.

It was a dramatic day. In showjumping, the lower the score,

:04:05.:04:11.

the better. It is about avoiding false, having a fence down, or

:04:12.:04:16.

being over the allowed time. The leaders were Saudi Arabia coming

:04:16.:04:23.

into the position. In joint second place, Great Britain, trying to win

:04:23.:04:29.

the first gold medal in showjumping for 60 years. The oldest and the

:04:29.:04:34.

youngest on the team - Nick Skelton and Scott brash - both jumped clear

:04:34.:04:38.

and a medal was guaranteed, but they needed a mistake by the last

:04:38.:04:47.

Dutch rider to give them a shot at gold. It has gone! Britain are

:04:47.:04:57.

still in with a chance. It is going to be a jump-off for the gold medal.

:04:57.:05:01.

The scores were level. Great Britain and the Netherlands both on

:05:01.:05:07.

eight faults. It would be decided by a head to head jump-off with the

:05:07.:05:11.

best to three scores to count. It still have a long penalty points,

:05:11.:05:18.

the fastest team would win. First into the arena, Nick Skelton on Big

:05:18.:05:23.

Star. This is the moment he has been working for ever since he

:05:23.:05:32.

broke his neck in 2000. He is getting towards the end of the

:05:32.:05:39.

jump-off now, and the last fence! He has got us off yet again to a

:05:39.:05:48.

tremendous start. That puts the pressure on. Turning for home.

:05:48.:05:58.
:05:58.:06:01.

Maybe not quite there, it is very close. 48.54, so Great Britain have

:06:01.:06:11.
:06:11.:06:12.

got an advantage. In rides Ben Maher, another cool cookie. One

:06:13.:06:20.

more to jump. He has done it. He is clear, so Great Britain definitely

:06:20.:06:28.

have the edge at the moment, and now it is down to the young star of

:06:28.:06:38.
:06:38.:06:39.

the Dutch team. It has gone. That has gone as well! This is the round

:06:39.:06:48.

they will want to discard. Tower Bridge. Weak-kneed the best three

:06:48.:06:56.

to count. Britain wants another fast ground and we will be there.

:06:56.:07:06.
:07:06.:07:11.

It has gone. It is pretty quick. Is it quickly enough? It is going to

:07:11.:07:20.

be right to the wire. Now, the next rider for the Netherlands. It has

:07:20.:07:30.
:07:30.:07:31.

gone. He has jumped the last. If he had had that one down, the gold

:07:31.:07:35.

medal was in the back for Great Britain. Now Peter Charles has a

:07:35.:07:41.

big decision to make. Will he go for clear and go for gold at, or

:07:41.:07:51.
:07:51.:07:53.

does he go for the fastest time? This is pressure. Got it. Just the

:07:53.:08:03.
:08:03.:08:06.

double, and the last jump. Now the last. Down to Tower Bridge for the

:08:06.:08:14.

gold medal. This could be the first gold medal for Great Britain.

:08:14.:08:21.

Britain have got cold! What a tremendous round from Peter Charles.

:08:21.:08:28.

The round of his life. The last man into that arena, and what are you

:08:28.:08:34.

thinking? The tears in the back. This is what they brought me for. I

:08:34.:08:39.

wasn't much good the rest of the week. We always believed we would

:08:39.:08:44.

come here with a strong chance. We have been waiting for this time to

:08:44.:08:48.

come, and we felt it kept drifting away again, yesterday with the last

:08:48.:08:54.

fence down, but we did it the hard way. It was exciting for the public

:08:54.:09:01.

to watch, and I still can't believe it. It is good that every one of us

:09:01.:09:06.

played our part. It means absolutely everything to win this,

:09:06.:09:11.

especially for our country. In showjumping we have not won a medal

:09:11.:09:17.

for 60 years or whatever, and I have never won one. We are running

:09:17.:09:26.

out of time. So pleased for the riders, but Nick Skelton has had

:09:26.:09:30.

this long and distinguished career and it was just such a dramatic

:09:30.:09:35.

ending today. Clare Balding is still with them in a restaurant

:09:35.:09:39.

somewhere not too far away from here. You have managed to court

:09:39.:09:44.

them? We are here in a very quiet room, everyone downstairs watching

:09:44.:09:50.

the television and screaming. Here they are, the gold-medal winning

:09:50.:09:55.

showjumping team. Fantastic, amazing performance under pressure,

:09:55.:10:01.

and I asked you what it means - this is a massive for you

:10:01.:10:09.

personally and the sport, isn't it? I think so. For me and my career,

:10:09.:10:14.

it is probably the best thing that could ever happen. To happen in

:10:14.:10:20.

London, it is the greatest feeling. I couldn't have done it on my own.

:10:20.:10:28.

We needed the three guys with us and it is amazing. After all my

:10:28.:10:34.

time... He you have had everything happened to you. Take us through

:10:34.:10:40.

your injuries. I have had two cartilage injuries, a shoulder

:10:40.:10:45.

replacement, a hip replacement, a broken neck, and I have got to have

:10:45.:10:52.

a back replacement. Apart from that, fine. I will be there in Rio.

:10:52.:10:57.

the oldest member of the team to the youngest. Scott, how will this

:10:57.:11:04.

change your life do you think? I really hope it improves my

:11:04.:11:09.

pulling-power with women, to be honest with you. Yes, that is about

:11:09.:11:17.

it. You were doing it for that? Pretty much. Peter, last in the

:11:17.:11:23.

jump-off - what were you thinking as you went in there? Being at home

:11:23.:11:29.

in front of the most fabulous crowd you could ever imagine, and the

:11:29.:11:35.

whole of British showjumping watching and waiting. We hadn't won

:11:35.:11:43.

a medal in 60 years and there was no way I was going to put a fence

:11:43.:11:53.

down. I said if I have a fence down, I won't even come through this

:11:53.:12:00.

entrance. Ben, you were a big part of this, and in terms of the

:12:00.:12:03.

breadth of experience this team has got, how confident were you you

:12:03.:12:08.

would end up with this gold medal around your neck? As a team, we

:12:08.:12:14.

were confident. We never said to anybody else we would win gold, but

:12:14.:12:18.

we believed we could win. At dinner last night we said we were in a

:12:18.:12:23.

good position, and I think we showed that a day. We pulled

:12:23.:12:30.

forward with Nick, and we were there and dropping back, we have to

:12:30.:12:36.

fight for it, but the jump-off made it exciting for the public to watch.

:12:36.:12:43.

You are still in the individual, and so are you, so has Scott - you

:12:43.:12:51.

have chances of winning medals again? Yes, we start from zero

:12:51.:12:55.

witches are completely different competition. Anything could happen.

:12:55.:12:59.

At least we are in with a good shot and hopefully we can get another

:12:59.:13:06.

gold medal. You have on your country proud today.

:13:06.:13:16.
:13:16.:13:17.

If you can describe what is going to happen now, I am going to last

:13:17.:13:24.

the music maestro to play this. That is Spandau Ballet, and you are

:13:24.:13:32.

going to go up to the Totalisator and move the arrow to 17 gold

:13:32.:13:42.
:13:42.:13:42.

medals for Team GB. Well done. Tell you what, Nick Skelton, a bit of a

:13:42.:13:46.

Dame Kelly Holmes in terms of the bodily functions, everything being

:13:46.:13:52.

patched up. When he did the videotape earlier, and he said his

:13:52.:14:00.

time was nearly up, I got a lump in my throat because people put

:14:00.:14:05.

themselves out for years and years, and he said about the injuries like

:14:05.:14:10.

mine, and finally he has done it. With that drama as well, brilliant.

:14:10.:14:19.

From horse power on the horses to horse power in track cycling.

:14:19.:14:24.

Tonight Jason Kenny, who was selected ahead of Chris Hoy in the

:14:24.:14:34.
:14:34.:14:37.

believe what I have seen here. The Britain four are inspired and

:14:37.:14:45.

Australia are bottling. The gold medal is Britain's. Mears is washed

:14:45.:14:50.

away, Victoria Pendleton takes the gold. They're on fire. Gareth

:14:50.:14:57.

Britain win the Olympic title and the gold medal and another world

:14:57.:15:02.

record. Clancy has a bronze medal record. Clancy has a bronze medal

:15:02.:15:10.

with that raid. In the semi-final the Beijing silver medallist takes

:15:10.:15:17.

on the man from Trinidad, Phillip. He won the first two. The silver

:15:17.:15:22.

He won the first two. The silver was therefore guaranteed. In the

:15:22.:15:28.

other semi-final, Gregory Bauge was far too good for Shane Perkins. The

:15:28.:15:33.

Frenchman won his first two races and qualified for the final and set

:15:33.:15:40.

up a show down with our flying Brit. Could Jason land his second gold of

:15:40.:15:46.

the games to add to his team sprint? The first to win two races

:15:46.:15:52.

would win gold. If you haven't seen this before, it is cat and mouse

:15:52.:16:02.
:16:02.:16:05.

for two laps and then it goes crazy. Cirs por or the and - Chris Porter

:16:05.:16:10.

and -- Hugh Porter and Chris Boardman report. COMMENTATOR:

:16:10.:16:16.

France have had a good tradition in the sprints. They have had five

:16:16.:16:22.

wins and two in the early years. The most successful won the title

:16:22.:16:27.

twice. Britain have just nailed the gold once with Chris Hoy in Beijing.

:16:27.:16:33.

We knew it would be a tactical affair. Bauge would like to keep it

:16:33.:16:41.

late and jump hard. Jason Kenny doesn't want to see that happen.

:16:41.:16:46.

Get ready. Get ready for the adrenaline rush! Just over a lap to

:16:47.:16:52.

go. Bauge at the front and beginning to inject pace. Kenny

:16:52.:16:58.

still with greater height. They up to the white strip. Here is Kenny.

:16:58.:17:04.

He is on his shoulder. Into the finishing straight. The crowd are

:17:04.:17:11.

on their feet. Kenny takes it and goes 1-0 up. He rode that

:17:11.:17:14.

magnificently. He didn't take his foot off the gas. Bauge tried to

:17:14.:17:19.

control that race and the mistake came in the back straight with a

:17:19.:17:28.

lap and a half to go and Kenny threw him a feint. He just forced

:17:28.:17:33.

the Frenchman to lead him out. That is what he did. Beautifully done by

:17:33.:17:43.

Kenny. Race one goes to Jason Kenny. If he can win this, it is two

:17:43.:17:52.

strait and he is the Olympic champion. This is what makes the

:17:52.:17:59.

nerves jangle, believe me. Kenny just keeping an eye out on Bauge.

:17:59.:18:09.

This big Frenchman. Bauge certainly not out of it. He is still in

:18:09.:18:14.

fantastic form here and Kenny knows it. It will take some controlling,

:18:14.:18:20.

but that last I was surprised at the pace of Jason Kenny. He powered

:18:20.:18:27.

around the outside. He certainly did. Completed the final 200 metres

:18:27.:18:32.

at 70 kilometres an hour. The coach is on the track side. Just shouting

:18:32.:18:37.

something to Kenny. They continue to weave their way around the bank.

:18:37.:18:41.

Watching each other. You can feel the pressure building. Into the

:18:41.:18:47.

back straight. One and a half laps to go. Now is Kenny going to take

:18:47.:18:51.

Bauge on from the front? Is his confidence that much that he feels

:18:51.:18:57.

he can hold him off for a lap. Kenny with one lap to go. Standing

:18:57.:19:02.

tpwaen him and the gold medal. Bauge tries to come up to the wheel

:19:02.:19:07.

and he won't do it. Kenny's got the head of the race and Bauge will not

:19:08.:19:12.

take it. Kenny is the Olympic sprint champion. He brings the gold

:19:12.:19:17.

medal and he won it in style with fantastic confidence. Look at this,

:19:17.:19:24.

the celebration is unfolding and Bauge had no answer to Jason Kenny.

:19:24.:19:31.

Silver in by a Ying -- Beijing and gold in London. What a handing over

:19:32.:19:37.

of the mantle from Chris Hoy to Jason Kenny. He is a triple Olympic

:19:38.:19:42.

gold medallist. That is his second gold medal here. Britain continue

:19:42.:19:49.

to hoover up the golds. A brilliant to hoover up the golds. A brilliant

:19:49.:19:53.

performance by Kenny. You're the champion, so much expectation, how

:19:53.:20:00.

does it feel to deliver? It is amazing. I hadn't thought about it

:20:00.:20:05.

until that last ride and it dawned on me and the battle I had to come

:20:05.:20:09.

here with Chris and knowing you had somebody on the side that wouldn't

:20:10.:20:14.

give that sprint away. I thought I had better not mess that up. I was

:20:14.:20:21.

pleased and I did it for the team. It is the old guard handing it over.

:20:21.:20:25.

Because he shares the same birthday as Chris Hoy, he is 12 years

:20:25.:20:30.

younger. Living in his shadow for a few years, but today he soaked up

:20:30.:20:36.

the pressure and delivered and it was a great result. First Briton to

:20:36.:20:46.

have two gold medals in this game. With - eJason -- with Jason there

:20:46.:20:49.

was that question mark about whether he should have been there

:20:49.:20:54.

instead of Chris Hoy. But they knead right decision. In Beijing he

:20:54.:21:00.

came so close to Chris Hoy and you could see he was the new guy.

:21:00.:21:05.

know, you kind of game the game aware, you share that Bolton

:21:05.:21:11.

heritage, I imagine you walk down the street in Bolton and you get

:21:11.:21:15.

mobbed. Jason could probably walk down the high street. I think it

:21:15.:21:20.

will be different, winning a gold medal will be huge and people will

:21:20.:21:27.

recognise him. Bolton's only a small place. But we get recognised

:21:27.:21:32.

every where. But he is happy. very humble. I was speaking to him

:21:32.:21:37.

and what a nice and chilled out guy he is. That is what champions are

:21:37.:21:46.

about. If you're a champion you don't have to be big-Eded -- big-

:21:46.:21:56.
:21:56.:21:56.

headed. Now time for ballet. And it is your turn. Would you move the

:21:56.:22:06.
:22:06.:22:07.

arrow up to 18 golds. One off Beijing on day ten. It is Monday.

:22:07.:22:16.

We have six more days to go. Thank you. We do up to 35 on Big Ben. So

:22:16.:22:22.

the possibility is not quite endless. Now a look at Victoria

:22:23.:22:28.

Pendleton's quarter-final in the sprint. Six time world champion,

:22:28.:22:35.

Victoria Pendleton cruised through her quarter-final. Tomorrow she is

:22:35.:22:45.
:22:45.:22:46.

against Christina Vogel of Yarmy. Anna Mears also qualified and Laura

:22:46.:22:53.

Trott did well in the omnium. She had a ternt place in the 20k points

:22:53.:22:59.

race, but a fantastic finish leaves her well placed with three more

:22:59.:23:07.

events tomorrow. A lot still to come and a lot still going on,

:23:07.:23:12.

London never sleeps. On the red button and online you can watch

:23:12.:23:19.

live boxing. Men's beach volleyball and basketball. This is the scene,

:23:19.:23:28.

we will go there for the superheavy weight fight, ant neer Joshua's

:23:28.:23:35.

quarter -- Anthony Joshua's quarter-final. And now the art of

:23:35.:23:42.

gymnastics and berth Tweddle. She is our most successful gym nars.

:23:42.:23:52.
:23:52.:23:53.

But she has never won an lemp gold. -- Olympic gold. There have been

:23:53.:23:56.

more ferocious lacking revolutionaries. Beth Tweddle does

:23:56.:24:00.

go around and round and come down with a bump. But can this be the

:24:00.:24:07.

face that has led the way to a new order? For a long time, gymnastics

:24:07.:24:12.

was under the control of the old eastern bloc, their names were

:24:12.:24:16.

known and their routines admired, but they were out of reach. Only

:24:16.:24:22.

superpower America could think of closing the gap. But ten years ago,

:24:22.:24:28.

Beth Tweddle became the first British gymnast to win a medal at

:24:28.:24:36.

the European Championships a bronze on the uneven bars. And the first

:24:36.:24:40.

to win a medal at World Championships and in Euro 2000 6

:24:40.:24:47.

she became European and world champion. In 2009 she was Wold

:24:47.:24:54.

champion on the floor. Beth Tweddle, three time world champion a pioneer

:24:54.:25:00.

and trail blazer. At the levels n Beijing she was fourth A placing

:25:00.:25:04.

that urged her to carry on to one last chance at these games at home

:25:04.:25:11.

and so four years later, 41 seconds and so four years later, 41 seconds

:25:11.:25:17.

of this. Just has to go through like she always does. A lovely half

:25:17.:25:26.

turn. A pirouette and into the move. This is the important section.

:25:26.:25:33.

Catch with the half turn. Straight to the high bar, she floats up and

:25:33.:25:40.

must focus now. Kick strong. Lift up. Two twists. Oh! A big step back.

:25:40.:25:45.

But she saved it. It ended with a bump as revolutions can and it

:25:45.:25:54.

seemed the old order was fill in -- still in control. It kicks in. It

:25:54.:26:02.

is a very difficult routine. First pir Rett. The second. Here is the

:26:02.:26:05.

difficult combination. Excellently performed. Just a bit of strength

:26:05.:26:11.

needed to come out of that second front somersault. There is the full

:26:11.:26:17.

pirouette. Beautiful, full into the next move. Swinging beautifully.

:26:17.:26:26.

Straight up to the high bar again. A clear circle. Has to include a

:26:26.:26:36.
:26:36.:26:40.

close bar element. The Tyneest -- tiniest step. Wow! Must FINA means

:26:40.:26:50.
:26:50.:26:50.

business. - Mustafina means business. She is very smooth. If

:26:51.:26:58.

anyone can post a higher score, she can. A lovely stoop in and out.

:26:58.:27:06.

Down to the low bar and up to the high. She has made her combination.

:27:06.:27:12.

Up into the one and a half dismount. This is going to be a fight to the

:27:12.:27:22.
:27:22.:27:28.

wire. Now in silver medal position. Pushing Tweddle into third. Gold

:27:28.:27:33.

for Mustafina. Might America be the only superpower to challenge them.

:27:33.:27:39.

Douglas is the only all round gold medallist. She lost a bit of rhythm

:27:39.:27:47.

and controlled it well. And she has just lost that. No Douglas out of

:27:47.:27:56.

condition tension -- contention and bronze for Britain, the first

:27:56.:27:59.

bronze for Britain, the first Olympic medal won by a British

:27:59.:28:05.

gymnast. It is only fitting a woman who has been such a servant to

:28:05.:28:10.

British gymnastics and would you agree without that success, funding

:28:10.:28:13.

would have been more difficult and this new generation have all

:28:13.:28:20.

benefited from that? Yes to have the funding like gymnastics and

:28:20.:28:25.

other minority sports it has show cased what they can do with that

:28:25.:28:31.

support. Beth is outstanding. She has been going for years. And to be

:28:31.:28:37.

world champion three times, to get that kind of Olympic medal, I'm

:28:37.:28:43.

sure, I am sure she would have loved to have got silver or gold.

:28:43.:28:52.

Maybe if she got bronze in Beijing she wouldn't have gone on. If you

:28:52.:28:55.

had got silver, you had the temptation to turn professional.

:28:55.:29:01.

Would you have gone on for the gold? Well yes. I may have. Because

:29:01.:29:08.

the thing is when you gate silver, you want to beat it. The deal was

:29:08.:29:12.

put on the table for me and I thought, I was young, I was in two

:29:12.:29:17.

minds, I wanted to stay amateur. Maybe if I had known the 2012

:29:17.:29:22.

Olympics were in London I may have. Because think about it. I'm 25. If

:29:23.:29:28.

you look at other fighters they are young. So I would have been in the

:29:28.:29:38.
:29:38.:29:44.

Beth Tweddle is the queen of British gymnastics, well this guy

:29:44.:29:54.
:29:54.:30:16.

Zanetti. That is very impressive. Look at this. This is just

:30:16.:30:26.
:30:26.:30:30.

superhuman. It is, isn't it? He is superhuman. It is, isn't it? He is

:30:30.:30:40.
:30:40.:30:44.

really, hugely impressive. really, hugely impressive.

:30:44.:30:49.

steals gold. The last gymnast up. Precious indeed, and it bodes well

:30:49.:30:55.

for Brazil at the next Olympics. Christie and Thomas came in eighth

:30:55.:30:59.

place, he fell back on landing but had a fantastic effort none the

:30:59.:31:05.

less. British gymnastics going strong, and strength is what a lot

:31:05.:31:09.

of the rest of this programme is about. Here is what we have got

:31:09.:31:17.

coming up. The women get ready to rumble in the ring. Staying with

:31:17.:31:22.

boxing, we are live for as super- heavyweight Anthony Joshua's fight.

:31:22.:31:32.
:31:32.:31:32.

We have the best of the action from a night of track and field. And

:31:32.:31:41.

don't forget, the action continues on the red button and online. It is

:31:41.:31:46.

all there for you right now. That is what is going on in the ExCel

:31:46.:31:52.

Arena right now. You can go there to see that. Great Britain's hockey

:31:52.:31:58.

women were in action against the Netherlands tonight. They will face

:31:58.:32:05.

Argentina in the semi-finals on Wednesday. Time for some boxing,

:32:05.:32:15.
:32:15.:32:19.

and it is time for these ladies. We are calling them, the Free -- Three

:32:19.:32:26.

Amigirls. Natasha Jonas was back in action, she had the daunting task

:32:26.:32:31.

of taking on the overwhelming favourite Katie Taylor, from

:32:31.:32:35.

Ireland, in the quarter-final. The first round when to Taylor, the

:32:36.:32:45.
:32:46.:32:55.

second round was all square, so we women's 60 kilogram contest, the

:32:55.:33:00.

third two minute round. Katie Taylor from Ireland wearing red,

:33:00.:33:07.

who'd just talk a good right hand from Jonas. Both boxers going toe-

:33:07.:33:13.

to-toe in the centre of the ring, and Jonas has to overturn a 3 point

:33:13.:33:21.

deficit. A good body shot from the left hand from Taylor. It is Taylor

:33:21.:33:27.

getting on the front foot now, asserting her dominance, as we

:33:27.:33:33.

approach 30 seconds elapsed in round three. The good defences by

:33:33.:33:39.

Jonas, but she is just overwhelmed by the sheer volume of punches.

:33:40.:33:44.

to full punching and accuracy from Katie Taylor. It brings about the

:33:44.:33:53.

first standing count of the contest. She tells the referee she is OK,

:33:53.:33:58.

and that is just one point so it is not like professional boxing. Katie

:33:58.:34:03.

Taylor is really going through the gears, unloading accurate shot at

:34:03.:34:13.

close range. She is so popular in Ireland that she was selected to be

:34:13.:34:20.

flag-bearer in the opening ceremony. Boxing is in her blood. Her father

:34:20.:34:24.

Peter was a lightweight champion in Ireland in the 1980s. She learnt

:34:24.:34:34.
:34:34.:34:35.

her trade by watching him shadow box in the kitchen. She has two

:34:35.:34:42.

European titles, two national titles, and she is doing her thing

:34:42.:34:48.

well, putting Jonas under pressure. Jonas, struggling to deal with

:34:48.:34:53.

those combinations. She went well earlier on the inside, but it

:34:53.:34:59.

depends whether the judges will count those body shops. Jonas

:34:59.:35:04.

competing valiantly as we approach the final 10 seconds of this round.

:35:04.:35:14.
:35:14.:35:21.

Taylor, target in the body once more. Katie Taylor, 19-11 after a

:35:21.:35:28.

dominant display. As we enter the final round in this women's 60

:35:29.:35:32.

kilogram lightweight contest, the instructions in the corner could

:35:32.:35:41.

not have contrasted more. Natasha Jonas is trailing by eight and the

:35:42.:35:45.

instructions were that she has to roll the dice, scoring points

:35:45.:35:50.

without reply. The atmosphere is fantastic at the ExCel Arena here

:35:50.:35:55.

in Docklands. It is more like a football match, but it is women's

:35:55.:36:04.

Olympic boxing, for the very first time in the history of this

:36:04.:36:10.

tournament in the Olympic Games. Jonas is trying to land those

:36:10.:36:17.

punches without reply. Jonas is trying to turn this into a fight,

:36:17.:36:24.

but look at the response from Taylor. The No. 1 seed, the

:36:24.:36:30.

reigning four time world champion, boxer of the year in 2000 date.

:36:30.:36:37.

Really putting her talents on show. A great left hook to the body, that

:36:37.:36:41.

will be hurt full for Jonas. Taylor really listening to the

:36:41.:36:51.
:36:51.:36:55.

instructions - he told her not to get involved. She also had to keep

:36:55.:37:05.
:37:05.:37:07.

moving her head. That was a big right hand, and he is forced to

:37:07.:37:14.

make the second standing count of the contest. It really years

:37:14.:37:21.

cacophonous noise being generated by this 10,000 strong crowd. Jonas,

:37:21.:37:25.

impossible to deter. She continues to come forward, looking for her

:37:25.:37:35.
:37:35.:37:39.

own shots. Jonas, sagging into the ropes. It is a standing ovation at

:37:39.:37:44.

this ExCel Arena, and they can be no doubt about the victor. Katie

:37:44.:37:49.

Taylor is living up to her billing as she produces a fantastic display

:37:49.:37:59.
:37:59.:37:59.

on her Olympic debut. Ladies and gentlemen, the winner by a score of

:37:59.:38:06.

26-15, in the red corner, representing Ireland, Katie Taylor.

:38:06.:38:13.

A standing ovation for Katie Taylor, the world number one, through to

:38:13.:38:17.

the semi-final and guaranteed at least a bronze medal. Given how she

:38:17.:38:24.

performed, who would bet against her for the gold? For that

:38:24.:38:31.

guarantees her a bronze medal. Jonas said afterwards she threw

:38:31.:38:34.

everything at Katie Taylor apart from the kitchen sink and she came

:38:34.:38:43.

up short. Continuing with the boxing women, and it is Nicola

:38:43.:38:50.

Adams next. Victory here, and she would be guaranteed a medal. She

:38:50.:38:56.

took the first two rounds by one point. We come into this in the

:38:56.:39:06.
:39:06.:39:24.

to go. This is the women's 51 kilogram flyweight division.

:39:24.:39:32.

Petrova, just put under a little bit of pressure from Nicola Adams.

:39:32.:39:38.

Just approaching 30 seconds gone in this third round in the women's 51

:39:38.:39:48.
:39:48.:39:52.

kilogram flyweight division between the box are wearing red, Petrova,

:39:52.:39:57.

and Nicola Adams making her Olympic debut. She has been boxing very

:39:57.:40:06.

well indeed. She led 2-1 after the opening round, extended that, and

:40:06.:40:12.

now we are here in the third round. Nicola Adams is using all her

:40:12.:40:17.

fluidity and punching variety that is her hallmark. Nicola Adams is

:40:17.:40:22.

one of the hardest body punches I have ever boxed. That is good to

:40:22.:40:27.

see she is employed in those body punches because that really will

:40:27.:40:37.
:40:37.:40:43.

slow her opponent down. The you to fall straight -- beautiful straight

:40:43.:40:50.

shots from Nicola Adams. She was told to calm down, relax, and she

:40:50.:40:57.

is boxing in rhythmic, fluid action in round number three. She is

:40:57.:41:04.

jabbing to much better effect now. The smallest boxer on the Great

:41:04.:41:09.

Britain programme, but she has the longest reach. You think you are

:41:09.:41:15.

well out of range, and you get thoroughly proven wrong. The crowd

:41:15.:41:20.

rising in unison because Nicola Adams has extended her advantage.

:41:20.:41:29.

She is leading 11-5. They at impressive third round win bought

:41:29.:41:36.

Nicola ahead, and she scored a 16-7 victory.

:41:36.:41:41.

Congratulations to her. In the semi-finals she will face a five-

:41:41.:41:51.
:41:51.:41:52.

time champion from England. Next stop, Savannah Marshall, Great

:41:52.:42:01.

Britain's No. 1 seed, in action for the first time. She was taking on

:42:01.:42:07.

her opponent from Kazakhstan. She had a decent start, all level after

:42:07.:42:13.

the first two rounds. 10-8 down, Marshall had it all to do and ended

:42:13.:42:22.

up losing the last round, going out 16-12. That means, from three

:42:22.:42:27.

British women boxers entering for the first time, Nicola Adams is the

:42:27.:42:32.

last one standing. She looked good, and she will face the Indian

:42:32.:42:37.

fighter who has come down a weight division. I think she has the

:42:37.:42:39.

division. I think she has the strength to get through, definitely.

:42:40.:42:46.

She is a quality boxer and puts combinations could together. The

:42:46.:42:50.

other girl will be coming down the weight so she will be physically

:42:50.:42:55.

stronger. Chester do some footwork, hit and move, and that will slow

:42:55.:43:05.
:43:05.:43:13.

down the Indian fighter. The Body - - Body shots she throws will slow

:43:14.:43:21.

down the fighter's world. Katie Taylor is a brilliant fighter. She

:43:21.:43:27.

puts punches together really well, her timing was perfect, and she won

:43:28.:43:33.

by a wide margin so I wish her the very best. Have you been watching

:43:33.:43:39.

the boxing? For I was there yesterday and I was in the crowd,

:43:39.:43:43.

and there were so many women spectators. It just shows it is

:43:43.:43:48.

getting popular so maybe in the next Olympics we will see more.

:43:48.:43:58.
:43:58.:44:02.

what are your thoughts? I think why not. If you are given that

:44:02.:44:06.

opportunity go for it. Jane couch tried to get boxing here for women,

:44:06.:44:10.

and to see them in the Olympic Games, a lot of people look at it

:44:10.:44:16.

and ask whether it is right, but why not? They are athletes. They

:44:16.:44:21.

have head gear. They have a referee watching them so it is a great

:44:21.:44:27.

sport for women. Did you ever try any in training?

:44:27.:44:33.

If I was boxing people, it would be without the gloves. It is a tough

:44:33.:44:39.

form of training to do. Yes, I have tried boxing exercise and things

:44:39.:44:47.

like that. It is one of the toughest sports in the world,

:44:47.:44:53.

alongside 800m! Have you got any female boxers at your boxing club?

:44:53.:44:57.

We have that many women coming to the boxing gym that we have to have

:44:57.:45:02.

a separate day for them. We get around 50 women who come and train,

:45:02.:45:07.

and having women boxing in the Olympics will make a massive

:45:07.:45:16.

For young people it is a disciplined sport and you see how

:45:16.:45:20.

coachs have drawn people off the street and given them a sense of

:45:20.:45:25.

presence and purpose. That is brilliant what boxing can do.

:45:25.:45:29.

People think it is a violent sport, because you go in there to punch

:45:30.:45:35.

someone. But every person in that gym, it teaches you discipline and

:45:35.:45:39.

not to fight on the streets. It is about technique and discipline and

:45:39.:45:46.

listening to your trainers. Let's move on to athletics. Britain's big

:45:46.:45:50.

hope tonight was Dai Greene on the track. The world champion scraped

:45:50.:45:59.

into the 400 metre hurdles. Could he surprise everyone and get a

:45:59.:46:08.

medal. He had all the main rivals in his sights. Can Haier Culson and

:46:08.:46:14.

Felix San clez in seven. Steve Cram Felix San clez in seven. Steve Cram

:46:14.:46:23.

calls this. Green gets a good start, the crowd playing their part. He

:46:23.:46:31.

had to go wide. Culson down the back straight. Sanchez has started

:46:31.:46:37.

quickly and Taylor. Green has a lot of ground to make up. Culson may

:46:37.:46:42.

have the lead. Taylor just behind him and Dai Greene has room to make

:46:42.:46:47.

up to get into the medals. Culson lits that one. Sanchez is in and

:46:47.:46:54.

Gordon and Taylor. Here is Dai Greene. Sanchez rises first and

:46:54.:47:01.

Culson is there. In the middle Taylor, but Sanchez is coming away

:47:01.:47:09.

and takes the gold. Taylor, Culson and then Grand Prix. Eight years

:47:09.:47:17.

ago -- and then Green. Eight years ago, he shouted on that occasion.

:47:17.:47:22.

He is questioning if anything went wrong. He will be disappointed he

:47:22.:47:32.
:47:32.:47:33.

has not got a Med 58. Gold to Felix Sanchez for the second time. Culson

:47:33.:47:38.

wins his country's first ever medal. I felt a bit tired. Of coursely a

:47:39.:47:43.

couple of days ago it was a shock in the semi-final. Surprised

:47:43.:47:47.

everyone went that fast. I gave it everything I had. A bit better

:47:47.:47:53.

structure to my race. But just a bit too tired at the end and missed

:47:53.:47:58.

out. Do you think that what happened to you earlier on in the

:47:58.:48:03.

year with the injury problems, has affected your build up and what

:48:03.:48:08.

happened here? It certainly affected my build up. I couldn't

:48:08.:48:12.

start until half way through January, instead of October. I

:48:12.:48:17.

can't argue, I ran a personal best a few weeks ago. Perhaps the

:48:17.:48:21.

endurance was not there for the rounds. It shows I probably missed

:48:21.:48:26.

a bit of the winter work. You cannot tell if it is there or not

:48:26.:48:32.

until you get to the majors. I couldn't have given it anything

:48:32.:48:37.

couldn't have given it anything else. Felix Sanchez, what an

:48:37.:48:41.

incredible story. He didn't make the final in 2000. He went hell for

:48:41.:48:48.

leth tore make sure that didn't happen in 2004 and then eight years

:48:48.:48:55.

later he wins again. You see the emotion. It is huge. He dedicated

:48:55.:48:59.

to it his grandmother. You could see what that meant to him that. Is

:48:59.:49:06.

what the Olympics is about and you feel see that true emotion. I feel

:49:06.:49:11.

sorry for Dai Greene, common wealth andure mean and world champion and

:49:11.:49:16.

Olympics and the home ground. He looked drained. How much do you

:49:16.:49:21.

think that experience in the semi- finals of having to qualify as the

:49:21.:49:26.

fastest loser took out of him. think as he said, it was a shock

:49:26.:49:32.

that everyone ran so fast. Sanchez just flew. Tonight when you see

:49:32.:49:37.

that interview and how he was running, he didn't look like he

:49:37.:49:40.

normally does. For some reason it didn't click. It may have been the

:49:41.:49:46.

injury, was tit pressure? Was it just that, -- was it the pressure,

:49:46.:49:50.

was it that they moved on to the next level. But he didn't get the

:49:50.:49:58.

gold that we thought he would. Holly blaez dale didn't do well.

:49:58.:50:07.

She had a disappointing pole vault final. -- Bleasdale. Jennifer Suhr

:50:07.:50:17.
:50:17.:50:18.

ended up picking up the gold. looked so nervous. When I saw her

:50:18.:50:23.

at the start, she looked petrified. It is such a shame. Because she is

:50:23.:50:27.

somebody that I thought would move forward this year in particular.

:50:27.:50:34.

She made a huge break through. Isinbaeva only picked up bronze. It

:50:34.:50:38.

is experience and she is young, moving forward. There is a silver

:50:38.:50:44.

lining to her story, her boyfriend, Paul Bradshaw proposed to her after

:50:44.:50:51.

and she said yes. He timed it well didn't he? Yes. Good for the boys.

:50:52.:50:59.

Perry Shakes-Drayton failed to qualify for the 4 hundred metres

:50:59.:51:05.

hurdles final, but nen another competitor was disqualified and

:51:05.:51:08.

then contested the decision and the appeal went in her favour. But

:51:08.:51:13.

don't be surprised if there is a British counter appeal. Eventually

:51:13.:51:18.

the appealing will stop. But you would expect Britain to put in

:51:18.:51:23.

another appeal? They probably will, because we are always going to

:51:23.:51:28.

fight for athletes. Who knows what the outcome will be. Some flat

:51:28.:51:36.

performances there. Yes I rated Holly Bleasdale and I still do. I

:51:36.:51:40.

think it would have been nice for her to perform well today and then

:51:40.:51:47.

have that hope of a potential medal and Perry has done well. But just

:51:47.:51:55.

again didn't come together. But she made it. You excited. Live box

:51:55.:52:02.

something Yes. Ant neer Joshua will be fighting. And now the latest

:52:02.:52:08.

inStahlment of you know what. The Magnificent Seven are six. Josh

:52:08.:52:15.

Taylor is the only one to fall so far. We're live for Anthony Joshua.

:52:15.:52:23.

He has impressed on Wednesday beating the Cuban fighter. Tonight

:52:23.:52:30.

he will be guaranteed at least a bronze after beating Zhang from

:52:30.:52:36.

China. It has been a busy day there and that is the scene there now.

:52:36.:52:43.

Can Anthony Joshua do it? The atmosphere looks fantastic. Let's

:52:43.:52:53.
:52:53.:53:05.

last? This is bout number 213. The last contest of session 20 in the

:53:05.:53:11.

boxing tournament. Three bronze medals positions have been decided.

:53:11.:53:17.

Will there be a bronze for Britain for the third time in this cover

:53:17.:53:24.

tigs, from the number two seed, and the world silver medallist, Anthony

:53:24.:53:34.
:53:34.:53:36.

Joshua? They stood as Joshua came in. And it is silver against silver,

:53:36.:53:41.

because his opponent is the reigning Olympic silver medallist

:53:41.:53:51.
:53:51.:53:51.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 49 seconds

:53:51.:54:41.

from Beijing four years ago. Now 29. extraordinary noise level. It is

:54:41.:54:46.

world silver against Olympic silver, battling for Olympic bronze. The

:54:46.:54:53.

big fellow in red is the silver medallist from four years ago. He

:54:53.:55:02.

lost to the Italian then. Zhang and China in red and Joshua and Britain

:55:02.:55:10.

in blue. Jang the bigger of the two, the south paw. He will have to

:55:11.:55:20.

watch himself. While Zhang isn't the most mobile, he can punch a

:55:20.:55:25.

bit.. Yes but he should have the measure of his opponent. He has got

:55:25.:55:30.

to set up the punch behind the jab. I like to see plenty of jabs into

:55:30.:55:35.

the face and that straight right hand. He doesn't need to hold the

:55:35.:55:41.

feet. Just set up that jab and establish that punch and that gap

:55:41.:55:46.

between himself and his opponent. We know from four years ago that

:55:46.:55:52.

Zhang is susceptible to a hard shot. He got stopped in his last round.

:55:52.:55:56.

But what a great sequence in the World Championships last year

:55:57.:56:04.

Joshua had. He beat three seat seeded boxers on his way to the

:56:04.:56:10.

final, that he lost by a single point. That was a super right hand

:56:10.:56:16.

from Anthony Joshua. What this fellow Zhang does, he slows things

:56:16.:56:20.

down and doesn't prefer, he prefers a slower work rate. What Josh has

:56:20.:56:27.

to do. That is better. He hurt him there. That was a good left hook.

:56:27.:56:33.

He certainly did. He has got to get his orthodox right foot outside the

:56:33.:56:43.
:56:43.:56:44.

onrushing right of the southpaw from China. Gotta -- good footwork

:56:44.:56:50.

by Joshua. He is stalking. Zhang just retreating. This might be

:56:50.:56:55.

Joshua's round. Joshua will be hanging on, but does not want to

:56:55.:57:00.

incur the wrath of the referee. Zhang is slowing it down. It is

:57:00.:57:05.

important that Josh keeps jabbing and that will use that straight

:57:05.:57:11.

right hand. There it is. That is better. A bit of a slap with the

:57:11.:57:16.

following left. But his right wasn't too bad. He has to move off

:57:16.:57:22.

the ropes. Zhang is allowing him to do that. Is not much between us.

:57:22.:57:30.

But I think Josh has maybe nicked this opening round. We will find

:57:30.:57:36.

out soon. Zhang, Joshua got him with the left hand. A good shot

:57:36.:57:45.

rate at the end. A baleful look from Zhang in Joshua's direction

:57:45.:57:55.
:57:55.:57:57.

and Anthony Joshua leads thrie 3-1. Good stuff Josh. In his corner,

:57:57.:58:04.

they are pleased with him. Saying good stuff. Just relax. I think he

:58:04.:58:11.

was affected by the first contest against the Cuan. There is that

:58:11.:58:20.

long jab I was talking about. is a giant electronic score bard

:58:20.:58:30.
:58:30.:58:33.

that says Britain 3, China 1. trainer is saying don't Tay take

:58:33.:58:39.

the risk, hands up. The second contest for both these boxers.

:58:39.:58:48.

Anthony Joshua in blue squeaked through against the fighter from

:58:48.:58:54.

Cuban. The Cubans didn't appeal. A lot of other countries may have

:58:54.:58:58.

appealed. A lot of people thought their man had won it. But Anthony

:58:58.:59:06.

Joshua was given the decision and he has to justify that decision.

:59:06.:59:12.

good left hook again from Anthony Joshua. It is important he doesn't

:59:12.:59:20.

fall short with his right hand. So he must establish that jab. That is

:59:20.:59:25.

why the jab is so important. Zhang closing it down and Josh doing the

:59:25.:59:35.
:59:35.:59:48.

sensible thing. It is about speed with this fellow. The Chinese 29

:59:48.:59:58.

year-old is known as the iron fist Prince. Feet in the right position,

:59:58.:00:06.

movement going nicely. He should target the body, fight with the jab

:00:06.:00:10.

to the head and whipped a straight hand down to the middle of the body,

:00:10.:00:15.

and finished with a left hook to the head. That would be a

:00:15.:00:20.

combination that would work for Joshua. Sensible boxing at long

:00:20.:00:28.

range. He got caught with a left hand, that was a good shot by

:00:28.:00:37.

Zhilei Zhang. Stiff jabbing, classic stuff from and Joshua, jerk

:00:37.:00:43.

two ahead of this man back. Joshua needs to keep that movement going.

:00:43.:00:51.

Zhilei Zhang prefers the contest at close quarters, at a slower pace.

:00:51.:00:59.

We knew he was susceptible to a hard shot, and this will only

:00:59.:01:06.

warrant a standing count. Joshua looking to the corner, and he will

:01:06.:01:13.

be saying keep doing what you are doing. The Chinese fellow has not

:01:13.:01:20.

recovered here, Jim. He is hanging on, with 30 seconds to go, and what

:01:20.:01:26.

a shot from Anthony Joshua. As good a shot as he has ever delivered,

:01:26.:01:36.

and what it time to do it. Zhilei Zhang is looking weary. Again, some

:01:36.:01:46.
:01:46.:01:56.

good left shots. He is starting to wobble. He is tiring. Great work.

:01:56.:02:03.

What did finish to the round. 8-6. They gave it to Joshua. I am

:02:03.:02:12.

astounded. High thought he had won by a long way. That is incredible.

:02:12.:02:18.

A lovely shot from Anthony Joshua, and that brought about the standing

:02:18.:02:26.

count. How they only gave it to him 8-6 has dumbfounded me, I am amazed.

:02:26.:02:34.

But nevertheless he is in control and he has the measure of his

:02:34.:02:38.

opponent with his right hand. He might not recover in this next

:02:38.:02:48.
:02:48.:02:58.

round. The coach saying that he should just can't -- calm down, box

:02:58.:03:05.

your way in. Every second taken up with good advice in the British

:03:05.:03:15.
:03:15.:03:15.

corner. A spectacular shot in the last round. Nevertheless, there is

:03:15.:03:24.

not much between them. Joshua leading 11-7. The Chinese boxer has

:03:24.:03:29.

got to go for it now. He has got to come forward a lot more and that

:03:29.:03:36.

may suit Anthony Joshua with the right hand. On his toes, boxing

:03:36.:03:42.

sensibly, listening to his corner. He needs to move away to his left

:03:42.:03:47.

to keep away from the range of the back hand of the Chinese boxer, who

:03:47.:03:53.

has been told to go to the neutral corner. There is a problem with

:03:53.:03:58.

Joshua. The vest has got to be talked in so the white waistband

:03:58.:04:04.

can be displayed at all times. That helps the officials decide whether

:04:04.:04:14.

a punch is illegal. Joshua leading, needs another few points for

:04:14.:04:20.

insurance. I don't think Zhilei Zhang has totally recovered. I

:04:20.:04:27.

can't believe his tactics. Four points behind, he should be put in

:04:27.:04:33.

some pressure on here. I don't think he has recovered. I have seen

:04:33.:04:41.

a contest stop after one hard shot like that. The referee, pushing his

:04:41.:04:48.

fists together, saying I want you to do more boxing. Nothing wrong

:04:48.:04:58.
:04:58.:04:59.

with his stamina. Zhilei Zhang knows he has got to land some

:04:59.:05:09.
:05:09.:05:10.

punches. Joshua still probably leading. Joshua has got to get his

:05:10.:05:15.

timing sorted out. Now the Chinese boxer is going to start coming

:05:15.:05:19.

forward, looking to land. He knows he is behind so that will present

:05:19.:05:26.

more opportunities for Anthony Joshua. The another good right hand

:05:26.:05:33.

from Joshua. His opponent responded with one of his own. This is

:05:33.:05:43.
:05:43.:05:45.

another close round, I think. The last 40 seconds now. Zhilei Zhang

:05:45.:05:54.

coming forward with that trademark left of his. I still think Joshua

:05:54.:06:02.

is in control here. The last 20 seconds. Come on, Anthony Joshua.

:06:02.:06:09.

You need this. You have a world silver, you want an Olympic medal.

:06:09.:06:14.

Bronze will do, Silverwood be better, gold would be fantastic.

:06:14.:06:21.

Zhilei Zhang not offering very much. Joshua not doing very much but he

:06:21.:06:26.

doesn't care. The referee doesn't have time to tell them off. I

:06:26.:06:34.

reckon Joshua has won this one. think he knows he has been beaten,

:06:34.:06:40.

he thought I don't want to walk on to another one of those right hands.

:06:40.:06:44.

There is no way he lost that by five points in the last round, no

:06:44.:06:54.
:06:54.:06:55.

way. Look at that, straight classic left jab in the face of the

:06:55.:07:00.

Chinaman. Per affect timing, and there is the right hand as well.

:07:00.:07:10.
:07:10.:07:36.

Just gets caught. Anthony Joshua, a 15-11, in the blue corner, Anthony

:07:36.:07:42.

Joshua. The world silver medallist is now a guaranteed Olympic bronze

:07:42.:07:48.

medallist with the prospect of silver and gold to come. Joshua

:07:48.:07:54.

still on his way, Britain's third qualifier for the semi-finals. What

:07:54.:07:59.

the day for British boxing, what the day for Anthony Joshua. It came

:07:59.:08:08.

through against the man who reached the final four years ago. Very

:08:08.:08:13.

pleased, Anthony Joshua pointing to the crowd and it was a much better

:08:13.:08:18.

performance than his opening contest against the Cuban. Zhilei

:08:18.:08:23.

Zhang, very appreciative. Anthony Joshua much-improved and well

:08:23.:08:32.

deserved. A guaranteed bronze medal. Just like Audley Harrison did in

:08:32.:08:38.

Sydney in 2000, Anthony Joshua has a bronze medal and it is onward and

:08:38.:08:42.

upward. Anthony making his way over to be

:08:42.:08:52.

This crowd waited a long time to watch you fight tonight. You gave a

:08:52.:08:57.

good show in the end and guaranteed a bronze medal - congratulations.

:08:57.:09:04.

Thank you. I would like to congratulate my team mates as well.

:09:04.:09:07.

Getting in there amongst this is amazing and is not just for me, it

:09:07.:09:12.

is for the country. After such a tight fight in the last round, how

:09:12.:09:19.

are you feeling going into this one? The experience you gain,

:09:19.:09:25.

whatever happens from this, I walk away a new man. You are turning

:09:26.:09:32.

into a bit of a people's favourite. When your name rings around this

:09:32.:09:38.

crowd, what effect does that have on you? It can be a bad round

:09:38.:09:44.

sometimes. I have to stay composed, but looking at everyone here, we

:09:44.:09:48.

are here for the country so I am glad they can come out and enjoy

:09:48.:09:53.

some decent boxing. Thoughts on your next fight? It will be

:09:53.:10:00.

difficult. The support is storing up for these difficult fights.

:10:00.:10:07.

There will be positive energy and we will take that into the next

:10:07.:10:14.

fight. Let's keep behind them and keep pushing for some medals.

:10:14.:10:19.

you have done your country proud. Congratulations, get yourself into

:10:19.:10:26.

the shower. This is the semi-final line-up for

:10:26.:10:33.

the super-heavyweight division. I will ask Amir Khan what kind of

:10:33.:10:39.

challenge he will face in a moment. Anthony Ogogo is guaranteed a medal

:10:39.:10:49.
:10:49.:10:51.

as well, following his victory over Stefan Hartel this evening. He's a

:10:51.:11:01.
:11:01.:11:05.

15-10, and he will face the floor and -- face Florentino. He did very

:11:05.:11:11.

well, he had come down in the second round. Yes, he is becoming

:11:11.:11:17.

stronger and stronger. The first fight he had against the Cuban,

:11:17.:11:22.

that will give him the extra drive to win. He can literally go for the

:11:22.:11:27.

gold medal because I think he has a good chance. The Chinese he thought

:11:27.:11:31.

today, he was a silver medallist in the last Olympics so that will give

:11:31.:11:36.

him more confidence as well. He boxed very well, winning by a wide

:11:36.:11:43.

margin. What do you know about the opponent he has in the semi-finals?

:11:43.:11:48.

He is from Kazakhstan - they are pressure fighters, very experienced.

:11:48.:11:52.

If Anthony sticks to his game plan, I'm sure he will get through the

:11:53.:11:58.

fight. I don't think it will be as difficult as the Cuban fight he had,

:11:58.:12:04.

but this will get him to the finals. He looked more loose, and then

:12:04.:12:10.

knock down - what does that do for a fighter? Yes, brilliant, it will

:12:10.:12:14.

only give you confidence. To be honest, I don't really think the

:12:14.:12:21.

Chinese recovered from that knocked down. It was a nice shot right on

:12:21.:12:27.

the chin. That is when Anthony put the pressure on and he started

:12:27.:12:31.

cruising through the fight. It has been a great competition, hasn't

:12:31.:12:37.

it? Yes, we saw Nicola Adams becoming the first woman to win a

:12:37.:12:44.

medal, and we have Anthony Ogogo also guaranteed a bronze medal. I

:12:44.:12:50.

really think this will be the best Olympics we have ever had. And the

:12:50.:12:54.

funding, you were talking about how much the funding went up after your

:12:54.:13:02.

silver medal and you were the only boxer there. He shows what a

:13:02.:13:08.

difference the funding makes because in 2012 we have got nearly

:13:08.:13:14.

a full team and a few of them are women. It makes a massive

:13:14.:13:20.

difference, the funding. It gets kids off the streets, get them into

:13:20.:13:25.

boxing, and they can focus on sport instead of getting a part-time job.

:13:25.:13:30.

The dit keep you on the straight and narrow? 100%, but I was always

:13:30.:13:36.

a good boy anyway. That's not what you told me the other day. You were

:13:36.:13:42.

driving your mum mad, weren't you? It vindicates the funding.

:13:42.:13:48.

It was the men's 400m final tonight and Kirani James, the world

:13:48.:13:58.
:13:58.:14:03.

champion and favourite, was going talent. Cleanly away. Who will be

:14:03.:14:09.

the first to show? Chris Brown has started quickly. Santos has gone

:14:09.:14:18.

out hard. Pinder out in lane eight has started very fast. James is

:14:18.:14:22.

looking good and Pinder being hauled back in now. Look at Kirani

:14:23.:14:29.

James glading around that top bend. Gordon trying to go with him.

:14:29.:14:34.

Santos is in there. It is James, the two teenagers have got this

:14:34.:14:40.

between them. But nobody's catching the world champion. He is storming

:14:40.:14:46.

away. Kirani James will take Olympic gold. His nation's first

:14:46.:14:56.
:14:56.:15:01.

ever gold medal 4.94. -- 4.94. Kirani James winning his nation's

:15:01.:15:07.

Kirani James winning his nation's first ever gold pledal. He is still

:15:07.:15:15.

under 20. What a phenomenal career he has got ahead. He looked there,

:15:15.:15:21.

that last 50 metres, he was powering away. First gold medal,

:15:21.:15:28.

first medal for Grenada. A great future ahead of him. The Carr bean

:15:28.:15:38.

runners having a fantastic lichs. Now we celebrate the underdog.

:15:38.:15:48.
:15:48.:15:48.

Today we take to the high seas for the men's laser class sailing as a

:15:48.:15:57.

young student took the medal for Cyprus. He said he hasn't realised

:15:57.:16:05.

what it means to his country until he arrives home. For soup Rus, we

:16:05.:16:12.

salute you, underdog of the day. Now an underperformer, this from

:16:12.:16:17.

Now an underperformer, this from Stephan Feck in the spring board.

:16:17.:16:24.

Forward three and a half. Oh here you go the first calamity. Oh my

:16:24.:16:29.

goodness. It is silent in here. I think he is OK. He slips off the

:16:29.:16:37.

side of the bard. Only has hold of one leg. He smacks him and that is

:16:37.:16:42.

one leg. He smacks him and that is a failed dive. He is out of it.

:16:42.:16:47.

That one moment. That one day and he slips off the board. It there is

:16:47.:16:52.

a time where we go and put our faces on the board. Come with me.

:16:52.:16:57.

And I will tell you the medal board is looking good for Britain. Still

:16:57.:17:00.

is looking good for Britain. Still clear in third place. Only one sly

:17:00.:17:08.

of the total from Beijing. And we have still got six days to go.

:17:09.:17:15.

Eight medals would be our highest tally since 1908. If I can ask you

:17:15.:17:22.

to put the wonderful Beth Tweddle on to the bronze. We have so many.

:17:22.:17:30.

And Amir can put Bolton boy Jason Kenny on to the gold. Can you do

:17:30.:17:37.

Nick Skelton, the senior member of the show jumping team. We have got

:17:37.:17:45.

Ben March there as well. -- Ben Maher there as well. And Scott

:17:45.:17:50.

Brash and I will put Peter Charles. He was the last jumper. We're

:17:50.:17:57.

running out of space. Well we have so many. Thank you. That is it. The

:17:57.:18:02.

end of day 10. Can you leave believe it? It has been a wonderful

:18:03.:18:08.

day, Beth God her medal. The show jumps got gold and for some night-

:18:08.:18:13.

With action continuing until midnight, Gabby Logan hosts a mix of sport and conversation with those making the headlines, and guests from the sporting world and beyond. It could be a big night for Britain's Anthony Joshua, a boxing world silver medallist. A win in the super-heavyweight quarter-finals guarantees him an Olympic medal.
