Welcome back. In 48 hours' time, we will be halfway through the closing
ceremony, it has gone quickly because we have been enjoying
ourselves. Tonight, boxing and taekwondo. Over on BBC Three, you
can see the diving qualification, the 10m platform, Tom Daley
struggling to qualify, I'm afraid, so a tense evening ahead on BBC
Three. But we start with women's hockey, Team GB were involved in a
play-off for bronze against New Zealand, victory would give them
their first Olympic medal for 20 years. Commentary at the riverbank

opinion, a golden opportunity for New Zealand at the end of the first

really excellent performance to win the bronze medals and to finish the

when we cannot get gold, we have focused on bronze. It will hit me

has been. The four me, it is the story of the Olympics, but imagine

hours is unbearable, and there was no way we were going to the letter

semi-final result was so difficult to take. It took us a while to pick
ourselves up and realise we had a bronze medal to fight for, but we
have worked as a team, we know each other inside out, we knew we could
pick each other, and we came into this game knowing that we were the
best prepared we could be, and we have come away with a bronze medal!
We were not expecting it, absolutely not! I have got to ask
you about the crowd, including the Duchess of Cambridge, on her feet
today, I'm sure you spotted that. They have been magnificent. I can
hear the hockey venue from the Olympic Village, 16,000 people, and
you just feel the noise coming through your body, the hair

Jason hammered out and about today at the boxing and hockey, a
terrific result for Team GB's women, getting a bronze medal, the first
one for 20 years. The Netherlands went on to win the final, they got
gold, Argentina's silver. The Netherlands won 2-0. Tomorrow the

Campbell took on Satoshi Shimizu in a bantamweight contest which we
The world silver-medallist from last year in red, Luke Campbell
representing Great Britain, European champion in 2008 in
Liverpool. He was the first Briton for just about 50 years to win a
European senior men's title. He is leading by five-2 at the start of
the second round against a very skilful boxer from Japan, and a
very strong boxer, Satoshi Shimizu, who will come on strong in the last
round and put Luke Campbell under pressure, and he will be desperate
to close the gap. Campbell needs a few extra points to give himself an
all-important cushion. A bit of holding and hitting from Shimizu,
don't do that, from the referee. Campbell looking to go to the body.
It is important that Campbell maintains the gap and space between
himself and Shimizu, bringing him into the contested it. He is not
made for inside boxing, but he gets through with sheer persistence, so
Campbell has got to adjust the FT, keep the gap and box at Meydan long
One minute gone in the second, Campbell is 5-2 up, remember, the
man in red, at the start of the round. He came through with a pie
in his opening contest, defeated a very good Italian and then the
former world champion, the Bulgarian, in a close-fought
contest, 16-15 Campbell came through. That left by Campbell was
more at a slap. He just over reached a bit, get back to the work
with their jab, the straight right hand, that is crucial. Measure the
distance, finished on the right hook and maintain the gap. Good
high guard by Campbell. That is Shimizu has not long arms, Ritchie,
he is very good at shortening the punch. -- has got. Campbell on the
move again, Shimizu chasing. Campbell has got the counter,
cleverly worked out, good tactics by Campbell. He brought his man on
to him. That was a lovely shot from Campbell! Some wonderful single
scoring shots from Britain's Luke Campbell. The third minute of the
second round, three points to the good at the start of it. He might
have extended that, he will be happy to maintain it. Important
that he keeps on the move, moves around his opponent rather than
going in a straight line, stayers off the ropes. That is OK from
Campbell, lovely right-let hand! Good combination, single shots
coming from the British Stand by for a real whirlwind last
three minutes from the man in blue, Shimizu, but will Campbell's
excellent second round taking the sting out of it and made it
Mission: Impossible for the man from Japan? Becomes like a steam
train that he is predictable, he is open to the left hand, that nearly
hit the target from Campbell. He should get that timing right and
accuracy. If you watch Shimizu, Lo left hand, he is inviting that shot
Campbell are just saying to the referee did the man is ducking down
a bit. One of the shots got through. That is a better round for of
Campbell. Campbell leads by five points, 11 points to 6. He needs to
keep calm. The corner will tell him to focus. It will be a big effort
from the man in blue in the last round. He keeps coming, doesn't he?
This is good work from Campbell. He needs to do the same type of work.
He needs to hold a bit. He needs to negate the work of his opponent. He
is showing signs of tiring a bit - Campbell. This man will certainly
not tier. He comes on like a steam train in the last round. Here we go.
Luke Campbell at bantamweight, three minutes away from an Olympic
boxing final. He leads his opponent in blue from Japan by 11 points to
6. Campbell needs to stick to the game plan. Hands up! Keep their
heads up. Keep better balance. Get the accuracy and timing right. That
is better, Luke Campbell. Japanese boxer came in as a
virtually unknown. He had to qualified to get here. He has more
than justified his selection. There is a five-point gap to be breached.
Campbell will not let that happen. Better by Campbell. Into the body.
Get off the ropes. Let's go! Match this guy for work rate. The Olympic
final is within touching distance. Let's do it. Campbell tried to
entice him. Good footwork by Campbell. Gets his man on the
counter. He has this one in the bag with a minute and a half to go.
Campbell is looking much more confident, whether he is going
forward or back. When he is for what he lands with a telling shot.
We worry about the fitness of Luke Campbell. He is starting to unzip
him. He has his accuracy. He has his feet closer and the timing. He
needs to stay focused. You can see the look on his face. He has a
mouth open. He has taken a huge breath. Campbell has boxed cleverly.
We did not see him at his best was dug this is the world silver
medallists and the former European champion at his very best. He knew
his best would have to be good enough to get to an Olympic final.
He has not -- he has gone down but it was not a punch. He needs to
stay focused. He has met fire with fire. That was a great tactic. The
best form of defence is attack was that he keeps going. Luke Campbell,
20 seconds away from an Olympic final Foster Campbell's of Defence
has been rock-solid all the way through. He is going to win us.
Campbell terms. -- win this. Flourish by Campbell. The Olympic
final for Campbell with that a single shadow of a doubt. The
performance of his career. More to come to drag turn silver into gold.
What a prospect for the boy from Hull! -- to try to turn. A great
last round by Campbell. Fantastic work by Campbell. His fitness was
tested write the last seconds. Then he replies. -- right to the last
seconds. He scored with accurate punches down the middle. Another
one coming up. That was on the side of the target. Going back to the
corner absolutely exhausted. He is well spent but into the Olympic
final. Brilliant! What a performance by Luke Campbell!
Ladies and gentlemen, the winner, in the red corner, Luke Campbell.
He has romped the last round by nine points to five. 20 points to

ecstatic. What a display all the Are you impressed by that? Very
impressed. I know him from the amateur days. Straight shots, good
movement. If you look at the Japanese fighter, he was physically
strong. He had a robotic style. None of his shots accounted. The
shops of Luke Campbell were more accurate. Another man guaranteed
silver. We saw Fred earlier on. is looking great for England.
Probably one of the best Olympics. We have Anthony Joshua of tonight.
He is a tough kid the step he is a super heavyweight. Everyone looks
up to him. He needs to stick to his game plan and listen to the
trainers. He seems to be very focused and very calm. You concede

repechage fight for Lutalo Muhammad. This time last night we were
wrapped up in the fortunes of a little head hunter from North Wales.
Now a slightly larger head hunter from East London. Lutalo Muhammad,
in the red, is 4-1 up against the Armenian in this bronze medal play-
getting closer. He is the king of the castle at the moment. His
opponent is leaning back. He is a bit hesitant. He has very good
double kicks. He scored a three- this contest. That was a double
kick. Two kicks can step -- consecutively in mid- air. Now a
simple shot. Lutalo Muhammad returns the favour. Both of them
swapping points. No difference in the points. Another two minute
round to come at the end of this. It is still the element of surprise.
It has thrown him off his distance. The penalty goes against the
Armenian. I cannot think that Lutalo Muhammad looks like a giant
praying mantis, dressed in white, ready to strike. He has gone for a
big one. He has got the big one. Absolutely perfect. He thought it
was over. He has conceded three points. Look at the Lutalo
Muhammad! He sprint back to his chair. The Armenian does not quite
know what is going on. His concern as he was off the rain when the
kick was thrown. Pure of focus. - us the ring. The referee had not
said stop. He was within his rights. We will see the impact. That was
people's ire. He has his arm -- he has his eye on an Armenian. I tell
a lie. The referee had put his hand in her to stop. Here, stop! It is
difficult to stop when you are in mid-air and you can see what you
are aiming for four star it is not the fault of the athlete. -- aiming
for. That is a limpet taekwondo. That might be costly for Armenia. -
- Olympic taekwondo. He is minutes away from obtaining an Olympic
bronze medal - the second in the space of 24 hours. A little bit
unexpected. He has managed expectations and pressure and the
skills of his opponent. It will be very difficult for the Armenian to
find the deficit of seven points. am sure there will be those who
took time to send Lutalo Muhammad hate-mail when he won his place
ahead of Aaron Cooke, who will always think he should have been
here. He was here yesterday watching Jade Jones but has gone to
the basketball to dove. He could not bear to be at the event when he
thought he should have been involved. -- basketball today. It
might pour some cold water on some who could not see why British
taekwondo had picked Lutalo Muhammad. He is under intense
pressure from the Armenian, who has is trying to seal this bronze medal.

His opponent has looked outclassed at moments, surprised often. Listen
to this! Five miles from home - five miles from Walthamstow - they
a cheering his name in the Olympic taekwondo selection stomp has the
last word. It is Brahms. Lutalo Muhammad, from the moment he was
picked in the spot has had to deal seemingly with the nation wondering
why the most public questioning of his suitability. Lutalo Muhammad is
now the proudest own up of an Olympic bronze medal. You can only
It is unfortunate it was not gold, but I'm grateful I managed to get a
medal. The drought reception was fantastic. The crowd was tremendous,
I am a London boy, this could not have got sweeter. I really wanted
to bring a gold medal home, I have to live with that, but I am happy I
was able to get bronze in front of this crowd, just did it! He said
after the previous round, a weight had been lifted off your shoulders.
What changed? We pressured? It was more maybe nothing to lose attitude
now, you know. I was so focused and set on the gold medal, that was out
of the picture, you know, my coach has managed to get me mentally
right, to go out and try to win a bronze medal for Team GB, and I am
very glad I have got it. Fantastic achievement, but the build up was
not easy, you talked about getting hate mail in the Builder, the
selection controversy. -- the build up. You have gone through that.
happy that I had the mental toughness, Team GB were fantastic,
like my second family. I'm just grateful to God, everyone that
helped me, supported me. It was a tough ordeal, but I'm happy that I
was able to win a medal. Rue des point? If I do not see it that way,
the fans were great, but no, I don't really see it that way, I am
happy I was able to win a medal. If there is anything else, great, but
I have won a medal for Team GB, and that makes me happy enough. And you
are a local lad, this is very special. I well remember it for the
rest of my life, it has been an awesome experience, you know, it is
unbelievable, it is hard to put into words, all the crowd have been
magnificent, and I am so grateful. Great to see the smile on your face.
Thanks very much. Well done, Lutalo, it must have been very difficult
with the pressure of the Aaron Cook story. In men's football, the
bronze medal match has taken place, Japan against South Korea in
Cardiff watched by Mark Bright and two powerhouses of Asian football,
a derby match and a pretty bitter of the box as well. You can see
what he has tried to do, aiming for with Borussia Monchengladbach. That
the scores! South Korea 1, Japan 0. It was missed by the left-back, and
as he comes in, he has a quick look up to see if there is anyone there,
and that is a great move, on to his favoured right foot. He drives the
defenders over, makes the angle, the goalkeeper is beaten at the
near post. He did ever so well to carry that on his own and scored a
Sukyoung with the shot. The left- back did ever so well, getting
so well, very clever. A quick exchange of passes, he keeps going,
this is what he does well. Look how far away, you have got to be drawn
in towards the goal, towards the challenge, they were very deep. You
have to say that Koo Jacheol does ever so well, just pulls it away
from the defender, draws it on to Great save by Shuichi Gonda.

Korean players were promised that if they won the bronze medal, they
would not have to do national service, and they did, didn't they?

Tom Daley was struggling to make the final 18. Well, he'd just
