1444: So let's get this straight - that's the Mayor of London Boris Johnson stuck in a zip wire dangling about 20 feet in the air in East London. If that photo wasn't attached to CNN John Sinnott's previous tweet I doubt too many people would believe it.
1512: Switching back to the sport (boo!!) for a moment, Britain's first ever Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins has just begun his quest for his fourth Olympic gold medal in the men's cycling time trial. The 32-year-old is in superb time-trial form, winning two legs on this year's Tour. He really is Britain's golden boy - but can he deliver what the British public so desperately crave?
1558: A glut of golds as Italy's Daniele Molmenti triumphs at the Lee Valley slalom course while South Korea's Kim denies China's Ying Chen to the top-podium finish at the Royal Artillery Barracks.
1603: Bradley Wiggins has a habit of rewriting British history. First, he wins the cordon bleu Tour de France, the first Briton to do so, and now he has just ordained himself as the country’s most-medaled Olympian after winning gold in the men's time trial event. It's his fourth Olympic gold and first on the road, along with a silver and two bronzes. What. A. Guy.
1612: Wiggins' winning margin is huge. He's almost 40 seconds faster than Germany's Tony Martin, the silver medalist, with a time of 50:39.54 over the undulating 44km course around the picturesque Hampton Court in south-west London. and is the fastest man home. And more good news for the hosts - Wiggins' team-mate Chris Froome wins the bronze.
From CNN's Sheena McKenzie:
"Here we go. 15 minutes until the men’s individual all-around gymnastics final. The 24 best gymnasts in the world will be throwing everything they’ve got into six rounds of performances. And the man to beat? Japan’s Kohei Uchimura."
A NIGHT IN THE POOL
Tuesday belonged to the great Michael Phelps, but Wednesday's hero has yet to reveal themselves. Yannick Agnel? James Magnussen? Cesar Cielo? And that's just in the Men's 100m Freestyle Final... Here are the races that matter in the Aquatic Center this evening, all times London Time:
1930: Men's 200m Breaststroke Final
1938: Women's 100m Freestyle Semifinals
1947: Men's 200m Backstroke Semifinals
2009: Women's 200m Butterfly Final
2017: Men's 100m Freestyle Final

1927: Stellar, the USA Women's 4x200m Freestyle Relay team have got a great chance in the last Final of the night. Elsewhere, there's Scott Weltz and Clark Burckle in the Men's 200m Breaststroke Final, Cammile Adams and Kathleen Hersey in the Women's 200m Butterfly Final and Nathan Adrian in the Men's 100m Freestyle Final.
1933: The guys are out for the first Final of the night in the pool - the Men's 200m Breaststroke. USA's Scott Weltz and Clark Burckle go, along with Great Britain's medal hopes Andrew Willis and Michael Jamieson, who were just welcomed into the Aquatic Center with enormous roars.
1934: At halfway in the Men's 200m Breaststroke Final it's Japan's Kosuke Kitajima who is leading and Hungary's Daniel Gyurta in second...
2148: Hey, Panon, I don't set the rules. Actually I do, but surely we're more interested in people thinking with their heads rather than their hearts, aren't we? Or could that be the next poll question: 'Should I ask you guys who you WANT to win or who you think WILL win?' Er...
2200: Yes, sport is still occurring. We've come to the end of the Men's Football, Weightlifting and Fencing for the evening, but Handball, Water Polo, Basketball, Beach Volleyball, Volleyball and Boxing is still going on. It kinda feels like it just doesn't ever stop. If you love sport (guilty, your honor), this is a magical time to be alive.
2206: Are you kidding me? We've got EVERYTHING in London, my friend. For your peace of mind, here's the draw for the quarterfinals in the Tennis competition:
Victoria Azarenka (Belarus) vs Angelique Kerber (Germany)
Serena Williams (USA) vs Caroline Wozniacki (Denmark)
Kim Clijsters (Belgium) vs Maria Sharapova (Russia)

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (France) vs Novak Djokovic (Serbia)
1116: A hearty British greeting to you wherever you are on the planet, it's day six of the London 2012 Olympics and on my screen right now is a man is shaking an old-skool bell at a British woman way out in front on the last leg of the women's 800m freestyle heats at the Aquatic Center. The beautiful curved roof is about to be blown off as defending champion and home favorite Rebecca Adlington wins her race with ease.
1117: Reader Caleb is desperate to know how many finals Team USA are in today. While I send an office squirrel off to figure out the exact number, I hope you'll be content with this temporary answer - LOTS.
1121: For all you fans of Olympics-based trivia, here's a wonderful nugget: The oldest competitor at this summer's Games, 71-year-old Hiroshi Hoketsu of Japan, is due to compete in the dressage at 1300 London time on his horse Whisper.
1124: A mighty impressive match-up with Piers Morgan this evening, a heavyweight bill to rival them the best of them with Piers Morgan. You cannot miss this.
1329: Russian president Vladimir Putin has flown into the UK for the first time in seven years to discuss the turmoil in Syria among a number of subjects with opposite number David Cameron. Among his duties in the British capital will be soaking in the atmosphere at the ExCel Center, home of judo at the London 2012 Olympics. Putin knows his waza ari from his ippons as he's a sixth degree black belt.
1356: Still so much action to come, including the first glimpse of quite possibly the most aesthically pleasing venue at the London Games, the velodrome. The stunning curved roof looks not unlike a ten-gallon hat without the sticky-out bit (please tweet us at #CNNolympics in of you know what this is actually called). It's also been dubbed "The Pringle", which key sponsors Procter & Gamble will wholeheartedly approve of.
