We're hoping to recreate the success of London 2012 tonight as our top athletes go for gold to make it another Olympic Super Saturday in Rio 2016.

We might have to wait up rather late to see it, but heptathlete hopeful Jessica Ennis-Hill will continue the defence of her title and hope to bring home the gold once again.

Mo Farah will also go for glory in the long-distance, and Greg Rutherford is hoping to jump to gold success for the second time.

There's more cycling from the velodrome too, Usain Bolt will be in action for the first time this campaign and the fastest woman in the world will be crowned.
