    Massively improved his running capabilities. The Egyptian was superb though 13th to 2nd

    Did well to put that gap in - the Egyptian chap looked strong!

    the female commentator on the Mod Pen show jumping is compelling, with great technical insight, articulate and engaging...

    Here's the startlist for the Laser Run. James Cooke is also only at 35 secs, which is well within his range.

    So not quite the ride Joseph Choong might have wanted. (Same horse Kate French rode yesterday - hope that is an omen ! ) But not a disaster anyway , he goes into the laser run in the lead , by twelve seconds.

    Fine silver medal effort in an exciting Madison... GB will be happy this event has been restored to the Olympics !

    No joy for Katy Marchant...nosed out again by Lee. After her bad luck in the Keirin I hoped she'd get something but the Hong Kong rider was a bit too fast.

    On to the Horsey part of the MP ... crossing fingers for Choong after yesterday...

    GB get a very brave silver in the Madison, heroic last minute effort to almost snatch gold, but just get silver. Was a very tough race, as I said, a lot of those guys were absolute Madison specialists.

    Next thing to worry about - Brits coming up in the MP showjumping in about 5-10 mins.

    I wonder what Matt Walls might do on the road as he reminds me much about Cavendish... well done chaps though in the madison
