    Dan is incredible, I went down to the badminton when the quarter finals were on, he was playing the Athens champion (whose name escapes me) and he just looked so effortless, he definitely looks like the badminton equivalent of Federer in the way he moves so smoothly. Plays some truly amazing shots, particularly on the backhand side. Looking forward to the finals.

    Every day I keep wondering when we'll hit the crowning British moment, yet every day somehow tops the previous. Surely this has to be it though.

    I've just got back from the Olympic Stadium, and that was without a doubt one of the best nights of my life.

    Absolutely cracking.

    It's been an amazing day, following on from yesterday's successes. I hope tomorrow follows through with some great stuff. Nothing else left to say.

    Not to forget Sarah Stevenson and Kerri Anne Payne!

    There's still more medal chances out there.

    Ooh, so close, feel really sorry for Chong Wei, he played a great match and it was one of those games where both players deserved to win. Excellent badminton.

    Well played, Dan. Well played.

    This is the most intense badminton match I've ever saw in my entire life. Chong Wei's played great this time, much better than last time they met. Shame that he gets silver again but, damn that was a great match.

    Murray! Dismantled (an admittedly off par) Roger Federer for gold. Could he do the double and win the mixed?

    In un-news, Bolt ran quickly again.

    He's a bit awesome.

    Okay. Murray. Andy Murray. Sorry if I didn't mention his name.

    Anyway, I missed the match and haven't really following tennis much nowadays, so Federer's performance must be getting worse if Murray won. Damn, gotta watch that in the highlights whenever it's on

    The women's semi-final football match between Canada and USA was one of the most exciting I've ever seen.

    It was also one of the roughest games I've ever seen. What was the referee doing out there - was she a Blood Bowl fan? I think at one point I saw a leg bend backwards from the upper thigh. Owwwwww!

    Murray can be a bit of a tosser but I hope this doesn't get re-written as 'he only won because Federer was shit' because Murray himself actually played brilliantly. Not saying the same performance would necessarily have been enough in a slam but you can only beat what you're up against.

    The plays Murray made in that game were phenomenal at times, he covered the whole court, he threaded needles with his shots, he saved break points fantastically time after time. Fed was a bit off his best, has been all tournament (though good enough to beat everyone else), but Murray never even gave him a chance. And that was after beating Djokovic and playing two doubles games the day before.

    Such a hero >_>
