1640: I feel for Sweden, Linus. That's heartbreaking, especially when the final stages were so chaotic. If it helps, I thought they were really entertaining (it doesn't help).
1642: I wonder if they heard you Dreamteam. They've just moved 93-86 ahead against Spain.
1645: I'm sensing a decisive swing in USA's favor. It's 95-86 to USA with just over five minutes of the fourth remaining....
1648: Not so long ago handsomerob. You only have to cast your mind back to the 2004 Athens Games, when they finished with bronze. Argentina took gold.
1650: Not a done deal yet. USA 97-91 Spain, with three minutes and a bit to go...
1652: Magnanimous Jesper (Sweden), magnanimous. Right, it's 99-93 in favor of USA. Two minutes to go.
1653: Yup. It's 102-93 to USA over Spain. ml ain't lying.
1656: Sixty seconds to go. Still 102-93.
1656: 41 seconds. 104-93...
1656: 37.6 seconds to go- 104-95.
1658: All over, surely? USA 105-95, 30 seconds left.
1659: 19.8 seconds to go. Spain with free throws, but they trail 105-97.
1659: 18.5 seconds. USA 105-98 Spain.
1700: Not yet ml, but soon...
1700: 12.1 seconds to go. It's 106-100 to USA.
1704: So, there's the 46th gold medal for Team USA. That means, in terms of gold medals, London 2012 moves outright third on the list of most successful Summer Olympics for the US. Only Los Angeles (1984, 83 golds) and St Louis (1904, 78 golds) delivered more.
1713: So that's 14 of today's 15 golds sorted. The only thing that remains at the London 2012 Olympics - on a sporting tip anyway - is the Women's Modern Pentathlon. Which I would highly recommend, seeing as it features athletes shooting laser guns.
1715: Beyond the sport, there is tonight's Closing Ceremony, which begins at 9pm London Time (that's 4pm Eastern Time for those who've asked). And then beyond that... well...
1715: How many days until Rio?
