KEEP REFRESHING PAGE FOR REGULAR UPDATES AND PICTURES
ICONIC: Two of the faces of the games honour each other's trademark celebrations on podium
22.12: Saturday's don't get much better than the last two. What will we all do next week?
Mo's and Bolt's achievements tonight are incredible but we shouldn't forget what Tom Daley has done. Poster boy for the games since 2008, the 18 year old lost his father last year and has just won a bronze medal under immense pressure in one of the highest quality finals the event has ever seen. Bravo.
And on that note I will leave you. Until tomorrow, goodnight.
Oh to be agent Ricky Simms right now, engineering his two main man to perform each other's signature moves on the Olympic podium. - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney in the Olympic stadium
22.07: ATHLETICS - I will leave you with a final image. Mo Farah has been joined on the top of the medal podium by Usain Bolt.
Bolt does the Mo-Bot and Mo does the lightning Bolt before strolling over to Farah's wife and daughter Rhianna. Bolt has his photo taken with Mo and Rhianna in front of the world's press and her mum.
That is what the Olympic games are all about. The sporting performances on show are staggering but the way it brings people together is something else.
22.04: DIVING - Final diving standings:
1. David Boudia (USA) - 568.65
2. Qiu Bo (CHN) - 566.58
3. Tom Daley (GBR) - 556.95
Full throated rendition of national anthem at Olympic Stadium. That's it, I'm quitting, it won't get any better than this! - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney in the Olympic stadium
Usain Bolt orchestrating a mexican wave at the Olympic Stadium - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney in the Olympic stadium
22.00: DIVING - Another Super Saturday for Team GB and Daley rounds it off to win a dramatic bronze medal.
David Boudia barely scraped into the semi-final, qualifying in the final spot available.
Qiu Bo is devastated and in tears as the favourite has to settle for silver.
21.58: DIVING - Qiu Bo scores 100.8. Daley gets bronze, Boudia gold and Bo silver.
21.54: DIVING - David Boudia scores 102.6 with his final dive, taking him above Daley and into gold medal position. What will Qiu Bo do? Can he deny Daley silver?
21.52: DIVING - Daley scores 90.75 with his final dive, a medal seems assured - a total score of 556.95.
21.51: DIVING - Daley's sixth and final dive is not as difficult as his rivals, so he will have to nail it and hope the others stutter somewhat for him to get gold with the scores as tight as they are.
ON THE BRINK: What will the last round of dives bring for Tom Daley at the Aquatics Centre?
21.41: DIVING - If Daley doesn't bomb his last dive then he seems assured of a medal, but what colour will it be?
21.40: DIVING - After the fifth round:
1. Tom Daley - 466.20
2. David Boudia - 466.05
3. Qiu Bo - 466.05
4. Lin Yeu - 437.30
21.37: DIVING - Tom Daley you beauty. 97.20 with his fifth dive.
GOLDEN FISTS: Hull's Luke Campbell can't quite believe winning gold in bantamweight division
21.28: DIVING - That's a big fourth round dive from Tom Daley. He scores 98.05 to move up to third position after four dives as China's Lin Yeu can pnly score 68.45 with his fourth effort. It's very close for the medals with just 5.25 points covering the top three.
21.27: HOCKEY - It's all over at the Riverbank Arena and Germany have defended their Olmpic title thanks to two goals from Jan Rabente. They beat the Dutch 2-1.
21.19: HOCKEY - Jan Rabente puts Germany back in the lead at the Riverbank Arena with a back post deflection as he just returned to the pitch. Three minutes left to go for Germany to defend their Olympic men's hockey title.
EVERYBODY DO THE MO-BOT: Bolt's 4x100m celebration takes inspiration from our own Mo Farah
21.16: DIVING - Let's get back to the Aquatics Centre shall we. He sits in fourth position at the half way mark of the 10m platform final. Just over six marks behind the bronze medal place.
21.13: HOCKEY - Mink van der Weerden has equalised for the Netherlands in the Riverbank Arena. It's 1-1 against Germany with seven minutes remaining.
21.09: BOXING - Campbell beats Nevin 14-11, with a final round victory of 5-3. Gold number 28 for Team GB.
21.06: BOXING - GOLD for Luke Caampbell.
21.04: ATHLETICS - That's a first Olympic gold for the Beast, Yohan Blake and it was his leg on the second bend that set up the world record.
21.02: ATHLETICS - Jamaica know how to sign off from Olympic games, Nesta Carter, Michael Frater, Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt get the baton round 400m in 36.84s to set a new world record. Beating their own record from 2011 by 0.2s.
21.00: BOXING - Nevin wins the second round 5-4 so Campbell leads the fight 9-8 going into the final round.
20.57: DIVING - Daley noches up 86.40 with his second dive and is fifth after two dives, 5.2 points behind the bronze medal position.
20.56: BOXING - Team GB's Campbell takes the first round 5-3.
20.50: DIVING - Both Chinese divers, Lin Yue and Qui Bo score 91.20 in their first dives to go below Daley in the rankings. Daley is in third after the first round.
20.47: BOXING - Hull's Luke Campbell is about to enter the ring for his Anglo-Irish bantamweight final against Ireland's John Joe Nevin. I suspect the atmosphere in the ExCel arena with be a little loud.
20.45: DIVING - Second time lucky for Daley as he scores 91.80 with the re-dive to put him second with the two Chinese divers left to go in the first round.
20.42: DIVING - It's a bad start for Tom Daley in the 10m platform final, scoring just 75.60. He gets ouf of the pool though and requests a re-dive because of the camera flashes putting him off during his dive.
And his wish is granted, he will perform again in the first round.
20.38: HOCKEY - It's half time at the Riverbank Arena in the men's final. It's a tight match but Jan Rabente gave the Germans a 1-0 lead over the Dutch just before the break.
20.35: ATHLETICS - Team GB can't get a medal, finishing in fifth with a time of 3:16.87. USA take the gold, just shy of the world record in 3:16.87, Russia get silver and Jamaica get another medal on the track with bronze.
20.23: ATHLETICS - Let me bring you up to date with the women's 800m final. Russia's Mariya Savinova won the gold in 1:56.19, ahead of Caster Semenya in 1:57.23. Russia's Ekaterina Poistogova claimed the bronze with a time of 1:57.53.
Now on the track we have the women's 4x400m. Great Britain's team consists of Shana Cox, Lee McConnell, Perri Shakes-Drayton and Christine Ohuruogu on the anchor leg.
20.13: ATHLETICS - Up next on the track is the women's 4x400m final and Team GB have a chance of a medal in that.
Then the final event of the night in the final athletics session of London 2012 (no I don't know how I'll cope either) is the men's 4x100m final. Can Usain Bolt win his sixth gold medal in just two Olympic games?
Zatopek didn't do the 5/10 double at London 1948. Four years later he did win the 5k, 10k and marathon. Sounds like a challenge Mo Farah? - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney at the Olympic stadium
Mo Farah has given me my two favourite sporting moments of these Games, he even stopped to say hello. Kind of. - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney at the Olympic stadium
19.59: HOCKEY - Team GB goalkeeper disappointed with his performance.
19.58: ATHLETICS - Mo speaks: "I've got twin girls on the way so I needed twin gold medals".
MO MEDALS NO PROBLEM: Team GB's Mo Farah is a blur on way to winning 5000m gold
19.49: ATHLETICS - Mo Farah is no longer just a British great, he is a great of world distance running. The winning time was 13:41.66, he held off the attack from Dejen Gebremeskel in the home straight to write his name in the record books.
This crowd is truly incredible in here tonight. - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney at the Olympic stadium
19.46: ATHLETICS - YOU BET HE CAN!!!!!!!! IT'S GOLD NUMBER TWO FOR BRITAIN'S MO FARAH
19.44: ATHLETICS - Mo's at the front now, one lap to go - can he do it?
Absolutely crackling in here. Farah will never run another race in this atmosphere. Only six have ever done the 5/10,000m double. - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney at the Olympic stadium
19.34: ATHLETICS - We're under way, Mo has 12.5 laps to make himself a legend in British sport.
19.27: ATHLETICS - Mo Farah is out on the track in the Olympic stadium. Can he make history and win the 10k and 5k double?
19.15: MODERN PENTATHLON - Nick Woodbridge finishes in tenth position and Sam Weale in 13th. They scored 2356 and 2360 points each in the combined event to give them respective totals of 5716 and 5664.
19.13: MODERN PENTATHLON - Weale and Woodbridge have both shot for the final time and are around a minute behind the leader. They won't be winning any medals but can they maintain their top ten positions?
19.10: As we've seen, all the teamsports are coming to an end and Spain have beaten South Korea to the bronze medal in the women's handball - beating them 31-29 after extra time.
In the women's basketball Australia triumphed over Russia 83-74 in the bronze medal match.
Ok let's do this. Final night of athletics. Could get noisy shortly after 7.40pm when Mr Farah is coming to end of 5,000m - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney at the Olympic stadium
18.50: MODERN PENTATHLON - The start has been slightly delayed but will be underway in about 10 minutes time. Woodbridge stands 7th overall and Weale 9th so both have a chance at the medal in the final combined event, which consists of shooting and running.s
18.40: MODERN PENTATHLON - The jumping went on for a bit longer than planned so the combined running and shooting event has been moved back to 19.05.
JUMPING AHEAD: Nick Woodbridge finishes 11th in the modern pentathlon jumping and sits 7th overall
18.26: ATHLETICS - There's more athletics action for Great Britain this evening as Mo Farah returns to the track and attemps to win a second gold - this time he's competing in the 5000m final. Also in action are the women's 4x400m relay team in the final.
18.15: MODERN PENTATHLON - Nick Woodbridge and Sam Weale will be in action again this evening in the last event - the combined final. Woodbridge sits seventh overall and Weale ninth, so they will start 25 seconds and 39 seconds respectively behind the leader, David Svoboda of the Czech Republic.
Woodbridge is only 16 seconds off bronze medal position and both have a good chance of taking a medal.
18.09: ATHLETICS: Jo Jackson reflects on her disqualification from the women's 20km race walk: "I didn't think there was anything wrong with my technique, but obviously the judges saw that there was. I was on for a personal best and I gave it everything, it just wasn't to be."
17.52: ATHLETICS - Jo Jackson has been disqualified from the 20km race walk. She was in 30th position at the previous time check so Team GB's medal hopes have not been dented but that won't matter to Jackson, who will be bitterly disappointed to be DQ'd in her home games.
17.47: MODERN PENTATHLON - It's all over at Greenwich Park in the jumping phase and it's been a good event for the Brits. Nick Woodbridge has moved up to seventh place overall and Sam Weale is in ninth.
Going into the final event, the combined shoot and run, Woodbridge will start 25s behind the leader and Weale at 39s.
17.44: HANDBALL - It's half time in the women's bronze medal match and it looks like a tight match in the Copper Box, tied as it is at 13-13 between South Korea and Spain.
17.43: BASKETBALL - In the women's bronze medal match Australia are leading Russia 38-30 at half time in the North Greenwich Arena.
British hockey coach Jason Lee is a real class act in defeat. Really hope he stays in his role towards Rio. - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney at the Riverbank Arena
17.40: TAEKWONDO - Lutalo Muhammad has had a lot to contend with in the last few months.
17.34: ATHLETICS - Jo Jackson has slipped down to 33rd in the women's 20km race walk at the 6km mark and it looks like a medal is well out of her grasp as she's over two minutes behind the leaders.
17.26: MODERN PENTATHLON - Nick Woodbridge has had his run in the jumping and performed well, scoring 1156 points to put him into second place overall. Sam Weale is currently in fourth with six riders left to go.

17.08: MODERN PENTATHLON - Sam Weale takes his turn in the show jumping round and recieves a score of 1176. That puts him currently up into fifth in this event - and first overall - but there's a few more competitors to go yet, including second Brit Nick Woodbridge.

16.34: FOOTBALL - Mexcico double their lead against Brazil at Wembley at Peralta heads home from a free-kick to add to his first goal in the first 30 seconds. There's 15 minutes left but this Brazilian side doesn't look like launching a come-back.

16.25: HOCKEY - It's still 1-1 in the bronze medal match as Great Britain battle against the Australians. After coming from a goal down, Team GB are looking much better in the second half.
GOAL: Great Britain's Iain Lewers celebrates after leveling the score aganist the Australians
16.14: ATHELTICS - The Olympics Comittee has announced that a Syrian athlete has been disqualified from the Games after failing a drugs test. Ghfran Almouhamad finished last in her qualifying first round heat of the women's 400m hurdles.
16.07: HOCKEY - Half time in the bronze medal match between Great Britain and Australia and it's all level at 1-1. The Aussies started the better of the two sides and took the lead before the home nation levelled.

ROCKY ROAD: Annie Last negotiates cross country mountain bike course on way to 8th place
Ben Ainslie great choice to carry British flag at closing ceremony - five Games, five medals, four golds, one silver. - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney
14.27: MODERN PENTATHLON - The start times for the show jumping event of the modern pentathlon are out and the Brits are both in the second round. The horses are assigned randomly in the modern pentathlon and each horse will be ridden by two competitors, once in each round so the Brits being in the second round suggests they may get to do a bit of scouting on how their horse behaves for the rider in the first round.
Sam Weale goes at 17.01 and Nick Woodbridge folloows at 17.19.
British swimming's Michael Scott is 'gutted' about his teams Olympic performance. He says he won't quit but has never experienced such a low - @jtoneysbeat Sportsbeat's James Toney
COMING UP FOR AIR: Britain's Sam Weale finishes first in his heat of modern pentathlon swimming
14.04: MOUNTAIN BIKING - Great Britain's Annie Last finishes in a very respectable eighth place with a time of 1:33:47, 2:55 behind Bressel. Last is the first British woman to qualify for mountain biking at the Olympics since 2000 and it looks like the 21 year old has a bright future in the sport considering the bronze and silver medals were shared between a 40 year old and a 32 year old.
14.01: MOUNTAIN BIKING - It's gold for France as 23 year old Julie Bresset blows the field away has enough time to do a Brownlee in the closing stages. She takes a French flag from a fan, blows kisses to the crowd and coasts over the finish line to win gold in her first Olympic games.
13.51: MODERN PENTATHLON - Nick Woodbridge finishes second in the final swimming heat with a time of 1:57.32. The winner of his heat sets a new Olympic record for the pentathlon.
Standings after two events put Woodbridge in eighth place and Sam Weale in 14th, 43 seconds and 1:02 respectively behind leader Zhongrong Cao of China.
13.46: MOUNTAIN BIKING - They're into the final lap at Hadleigh Farm and 23 year old Julie Bresset has nearly a minute's lead over the rest of the field.
21 year old Annie Last has dropped back to seventh position, 2:13 behind the leader. Not a bad effort from the young Brit with every rider ahead of her being older, and most of them in their 30s.
13.40: MODERN PENTATHLON - Sam Weale wins heat three of the swimming with a time of 2:03.40, easliy the fastest of any swimmer so far with just two heats to go.
13.33: MOUNTAIN BIKING - Last is still in fifth place and now trails Julie Bresset by 1minute 22seconds. The Brit's gap to the medal places is also lengthening, now out to 44s.
13.27: MODERN PENTATHLON - Sam Weale will go in the third swimming heat of the pentathlon and Nick Woodbridge will go in the fifth heat of the 200m freestyle.
13.22: ATHLETICS - Dominic King has finally finished the 50km walk. Credit to him for persevering but the Brit finished in 51st place and last, with a time of 4:15:05, nine minutes down on his PB and 39mins behind the winner Sergey Kirdyapkin of Russia.
13.21: MOUNTAIN BIKING - Annie Last is fifth at the halfway mark, 34s behind the French rider Julie Bresset. Last is 29s behind the medal places.
13.17: MODERN PENTATHLON - After competing in the fencing this morning, Sam Weale and Nick Woodbridge are back in action in the swimming. They start in equal 13th.
13.09: MOUNTAIN BIKING - I have to say this mountain biking lark looks like hard work to me, some of the views coming from the helicopter cameras are great though.
Another terrible view from the press tribunes at hadleigh farm for the mountain biking. Scorcher of a day. http://pic.twitter.com/CuJNdXNY - @TReynoldsSB It's a hard life being a Sportsbeat reporter on the ground.
13.02: MOUNTAIN BIKING - Annie Last is now starting to suffer from the pace she set in the opening lap and has dropped down to fifth place at the end of lap two, about a third of the race distance. She was 11seconds behind the leaders but had a 16s cushion to the riders behind her.
12.55: CANOE SPRINT - Read about Heath and Schofield's relief at finishing a nervy week with a medal.
12.52: ATHLETICS - Credit to Dominic King in the 50km walk, he is still going, in 51st and last place. He went through the 45km checkpoint in a time 13mins slower than the winner at the 50km finish.
12.49: MOUNTAIN BIKING - Annie Last goes through the end of the first lap in second place and is now in a leading group of four with about a ten second lead ahead of the rest of the field.
12.39: MOUNTAIN BIKING - I may have misunderstood the start list for the mountain biking. Annie Last was in the first line of riders at the start but it was in fact a mass start, she was just at the head of the bunch.
Last is still at the head of the race after 11mins with the French rider Bresset, and they've opened up a bit of a gap.
12.29: Later on today we will have the riding and combined events of the modern pentathlon at 15.20 and 18.45 respectively.
Team GB take on Australia in the men's hockey for a bronze medal at 15.30.
Jo Jackson competes in the women's 20km race walk at 17.00.
Mo Farah runs for double gold in the 5000m at 19.30.
Our women's 4x400m squad start their final at 20.25.
Tom Daley dives for a medal in the 10m platform final at 20.30.
And Britain's Luke Campbell fights Ireland's John Joe Nevin in the final of the men's bantamweight boxing.
12.24: MOUNTAIN BIKING - The women's cross county event will be starting soon at Hadleigh Farm, Essex. Britain's Annie Last will be in the first line of riders so should hopefully be setting a time to beat for the rest of the field over the 29.26km course.
12.17: ATHLETICS - Dominic King is still persisting in the 50km race walk and will soon pass the 40km checkpoint, just 10000m to go.
ON THE ATTACK: Britain's Sam Weale (left) competes in modern pentathlon's fencing event
RELIEF: Tom Daley puts last night's troubles behind him to qualify for tonight's 10m platform final
11.55: DIVING - Tom Daley has finished fourth in the 10m platform diving semi-final and there's a bit of a shock as defending champion, Australia's Matthew Mitcham, fails to make the final.
11.51: MODERN PENTATHLON - The fencing has definitely finished now, and Team GB's Nick Woodbridge and Sam Weale are tied in equal 13th place, with a 54s deficit to the leader. David Svoboda tops the standings with a new Olympic record in the fencing with a score of 1024 points.
Can they close that gap in the coming events?
Up next for the modern pentathletes is the swimming discipline in the Aquatics Centre at 13.20.
WEEKEND STROLL: Team GB's Dominic King struggles in the 50km walk along the Mall
11.42: DIVING - No dramas from Daley with his final dive, 89.10 to give him a 521.10 total which will see him safely into tonight's final where the medals will be decided.
MEDAL MOMENT: Liam Heath (left) and Jon Schofield collect their K2 200m bronze medals
11.37: DIVING - It's all coming good for Tom Daley at the right time, with everyone having just one dive to go Daley is in fourth place.
11.33: ATHLETICS - Dom King is still last in the 50km race walk at the 30km mark I'm afraid, it's taken him 2:28:28 to get to that point, 17mins behind the leader.
SPRINT TO GOLD: Ed McKeever, the Usain Bolt of the water, celebrates gold in the K1 200m
11.23: DIVING - 91.80 points for Tom Daley with his fifth dive which should see him, barring disaster in his final dive, secure his place in tonight's final.
11.18: DIVING - Daley has improved again, a score of 88.80 in his fourth dive takes him up to seventh overall with everybody just having two dives left in the semi-final.
11.13: MODERN PENTATHLON - There are 36 competitors in the modern pentathlon and every competes against everyone else in the fencing event. The scores for each of the first four events contribute to a time deficit to the final running event, with the leader setting off first and the first person to cross the line crowned the winner.
11.07: MOUNTAIN BIKING - Apart from the Brits already in action in ongoing events, the next Team GB competitor to get going will be Annie Last in the women's cross-country mountain bike competition. Last is ranked fifth in the latest UCI standings so is in with a chance of a medal.
11.04: MODERN PENTATHLON - My apologies but the fencing in the modern pentathlon has yet to finish, both Brits are still in action - I'll bring you more information when the fencing is done and dusted.
11.01: ATHLETICS - Great Britain's Dominic King is struggling in the 50km race walk and is in last place at the half way mark.
10.57 DIVING - After a disappointing qualification stage last night, Tom Daley has improved this morning and sits in eighth position at the half way point of the semi-final. The top 12 will qualify for the final.
10.53: MODERN PENTATHLON - Samuel Weale and Nick Woodbridge are under way in the gruelling one day competition of the modern pentathlon. After the first event, fencing, Woodbridge lies in equal 11th place and Samuel Weale is down in equal 30th.
10.50: CANOE SPRINT - Heath and Schofield finish third in the K2 200m sprint in a time of 34.421s. Russia take the gold and Belarus overtake the British pair in the final 30m to take the silver
10.48: CANOE SPRINT - Liam Heath and John Schofield are about to start their K2 200m final.
10.40: CANOE SPRINT - Less good news from Eton Dorney now as Jess Walker finished seventh in the women's K1 200m final with a time of 46.161s.
10.00: CANOE SPRINT - Good morning! Oh and it's gold to kick off the blog today as the Usain Bolt of canoe sprinting, Ed McKeever has won the K1 200 metres men's singles in a time of 36.246 seconds. The trainee accountant was widely tipped by all to bring gold home and really has made those numbers count!
