The velodrome was the place to be today, with some amazing races. Two teams were penalised for illegal changeovers in the Women's Team Sprint, including Great Britain who would otherwise have been in contention for one of the Top two medals.

Michael Phelps got yet more medals in the pool today, making him the first man to ever defend his Olympic title twice. 

Enjoy the Games!
