1342: Inertia, one of those words you have to double check to ensure you've spelt it correctly because it doesn't read as you say it, can a tough obstacle to overcome Michael. But, judging by Germany's superb fence-clearing antics in the showjumping today, it should provide the spark which ignites the medal stampede.
1659: Spare a thought for Justin Peters, a man who is losing as many friends as China are winning golds in London. Why? Because he's living, breathing and consuming the 2012 Games from his States-side abode, waking at 4am to watch Korea's archers dominate at Lord's. However much fun this may seem, it also has a downside...
1715: Yeah, sorry about that picture. No, I can't really see properly now either. Let's try to focus on this next gold medal...
1722: Blimey, you're not wrong, Matt. On Court One at Wimbledon, where it still doesn't look right that the players aren't wearing all-white, it's gone to a decisive third set between France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Canada's Milos Raonic, and it is currently 13-12 to Tsonga. Epic.
As well as taking part in the Women's Artistic Team Gymnastics, there's lots of U.S. interest remaining today: Men's Volleyball vs. Germany; Women's Football vs. North Korea; Women's Hockey vs. Argentina; Men's Basketball vs. Tunisia; Phelps in the 200m Butterfly Final; Schmitt & Franklin in 200m Freestyle Final; Leverenz & Kukors in 200m IM Final; 4x200m Freestyle Relay Final. You won't miss a beat right here.
1737: There's more from CNN’s World Sport on Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen: IOC spokesman Mark Adams insists drugs allegations surrounding the 16-year-old are "pure rumours and nothing at all of fact or substance. I think people should sit back and enjoy a fantastic performance.” He said the results from Sunday’s testing will take at least 72 hours, adding: “I won’t hear anything unless abnormal results come back.”
1747: In that Men's Tennis match I was talking about earlier, France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga just had a match point against Canada's Milos Raonic. He lost it, and it's now 16-16 in games in the decisive third set. What a screamer.
1903: Everyone still buzzing off the gymnastics? Me too. As always keen to hear your thoughts on USA's Fab Five via the usual methods and there's a lot more going on tonight - especially in the swimming pool, where a certain Michael Phelps seeks to create yet more history...
SPOTLIGHT ON: MICHAEL PHELPS
Criticised for not training hard enough, suspected of being well past his best - it's been a difficult time for the great Michael Phelps recently. But tonight, in London, the Baltimore Bullet seeks to claim perhaps the one remaining Olympic record that eludes him, that of the most medals in Games history. Phelps currently has 17 (14 gold, 1 silver, 2 bronze), one shy of Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina's 18. Two more of any color this evening and it's all his.
1919: Well there's not much non-sport productivity going on around my desk right now mate, though that might be because I'm being paid to write about sport. So its a bit difficult for me to say. Anyone else?
A NIGHT IN THE POOL
And so it rumbles on... Anyway, it's Michael Phelps Night; or at least that's how our fourth evening of swimming action is supposed to play out. The 27-year-old goes in the fly final and the 4x200 free relay as he seeks to quieten those talking about his early demise. Your schedule, all times London Time as usual:
1930: Men's 100m Freestyle Semifinals
1939: Women's 200m Freestyle Final
1947: Men's 200m Butterfly Final
1955: Women's 200m Butterfly Semifinals
2017: Men's 200m Breaststroke Semifinals
2039: Women's 200m Individual Medley Final
2047: Men's 4x200m Freestyle Relay Final
2009: That short stroke will haunt Michael Phelps, despite his 14 Olympic golds, two silvers and two bronze medals that leave him as the joint most decorated Olympian of all time on 18. Meanwhile, USA's Kathleen Hersey has eased into the Women's 200m Butterfly Final by winning her Semi.
Tom Daley twitter attacks update
The 17-year-old arrested this morning on suspicion of malicious tweets to British Olympic diver Tom Daley, has now been issued with a harassment warning. The teen has been bailed to return to the police station at a later date while Dorset Police investigate his Twitter account.
Swimmer Ye Shiwen latest
U.S.A Swimming has distanced itself from coach John Leonard, after he raised doubts about the validity of Ye Shiwen’s world record-breaking swim. They issued this statement:
"John Leonard is the executive director of the American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA) and the World Swimming Coaches Association (WSCA). He is not an employee, representative or spokesperson for USA Swimming, nor is he a member of the U.S. Olympic Swim Team or a part of the official U.S. delegation here in London."
