1539: And let's not neglect the Handball Gold Medal Match. It's Sweden 8-10 France after the first half.
Callum Tennent for CNN:
1541: The super heavyweight final bout started at a remarkable pace. Anthony Joshua of Great Britain certainly looked lighter and more mobile, if only because Roberto Cammarelle dominated the centre of the ring so well. After a peek-a-boo opening from both fighters, Joshua caught the southpaw slacking with his guard and landed two swift right hands to the Italian’s head, drawing first blood.
Cammarelle rebounded with aplomb, however, backing Joshua into the corner and positively pummelling him, at least three clean crosses landing to the dome. The pace slowed in the second round and with one round to go Cammarelle had a three point lead established, the Italian nicely negating Joshua’s superior range with some remarkably quick head movement.
Joshua was clearly aware of the ground he needed to make up in the third round, taking to the front foot and bringing the fight to Cammarelle. He threw straight after straight trying to land some clean punches but the Italian was happy to clinch the round away. It didn’t look like young Brit had made enough clean contacts to overthrow the reigning Olympic champion though.
The judges announced their scores -- the two were tied at 18 apiece. However, clearly the busier man in the deciding round, the victory and the gold medal goes to 22-year-old Anthony Joshua, on points. The home crowd go crazy for their new Olympic super heavyweight champion.
1543: That makes it 29 golds for Great Britain. This is by some distance their second-best ever Olympic performance - only the home Games of 1908 is better, the mighty 56 golds of then coming in a very different era. It's a remarkable turnaround. Remember, in Atlanta in 1996, GB finished 36th in the medal table with a single gold medal.
1545: Four minutes of the second quarter to go and it's USA 52-49 Spain in the Men's Basketball Gold Medal match.
1549: Right. Time to catch breath. Ten gold medals in the past two hours. 11 in total today. Three for Russia, one each for Cuba, Czech Republic, Great Britain, Japan, Kazakhstan, Uganda, Ukraine and USA.
1551: And four still to come. Men's Basketball, Men's Handball, Women's Modern Pentathlon and Men's Water Polo - where the final between Croatia and Italy is just beginning.
1559: Halfway through the Men's Basketball Final. Score? USA 59-58 Spain. Wow.
1600: Handball update. France 14-11 Sweden. Seven minutes into the second half.
1602: Default, there's no way I can unpick that in the space of a blog entry. Suffice to say, the simple answers over here are no, no and no. Unless you want to cause a bit of a scene.
1604: Let's just put that 29th GB gold on ice by the way. The Italians have appealed the decision, so we await the outcome. Anthony Joshua's super-heavyweight win may yet be annulled. More soon.
1606: The Italian appeal has failed. Anthony Joshua's gold medal stands.
1614: We are back under way in the Basketball by the way. Remember, it's USA 59-58 Spain.
1620: Well done Danny, although you now need to report for a mandatory drugs test to check it was a clean win. Now, with just over five minutes to go in the third quarter, it's Spain 68-66 USA.
1624: @LaurenMoorhouse, with a score of USA 75-72 Spain with four minutes of the third quarter to go, I cannot see how basketball is going to be the loser here.
1629: 90 seconds to go in the third and it's USA 83-80 Spain. This one could go to the wire.
1633: End of the third quarter. USA 83-82 Spain. It's a one-point game. Told you Drama and London 2012 weren't finished with each other yet....
1634: Speaking of drama...
1635: Trying to watch the Basketball and the Handball simultaneously is resulting in sensory overload. But let me just say - the closing stages of that France-Sweden match can only be described as Utterly Frantic Mayhem Lunacy (UFML).
