Mo Farah's Bid For Double Olympic Glory
Mo Farah will be aiming for his second gold of the London Games on the last day of action inside the Olympic Stadium.
After winning the 10,000m title in stunning fashion, the 29-year-old is one of the favourites to land the 5,000m title later today.
This morning Ed McKeever goes for gold in the kayak sprint after storming through his heats in the fastest time of the day and then crusing through his semi-final at Eton Dorney.
The 28-year-old former world and European champion is the hot favourite to win gold after spending the first week of the Games in Barcelona preparing for the race. He will be watched by fiancee Anya Kuczha, a 26-year-old PE teacher.
Their wedding plans have been put on hold until September so McKeever, dubbed the "Usain Bolt of the water", can concentrate on victory at the Olympics.
Three-times European champions Jon Schofield and Liam Heath will go for a medal in the two-man kayak 200m sprint.
Meanwhile, 22-year-old Jessica Walker has an outside chance of a medal after qualifying for the women's single kayak 200m sprint final.
Diver Tom Daley survived a major scare as he left it until his final dive last night to get through the first round of the men's 10m platform.
The 18-year-old former world champion produced one of the worst displays of his career before narrowly sneaking through to this morning's 18-man semi-final.
Nick Woodbridge will also be hoping to challenge for a medal in the notoriously unpredictable modern pentathlon after winning bronze at last year's Olympic test event.
Victories in the ring mean Luke Campbell and Fred Evans have the chance to go for gold today, with Britain guaranteed at least two more silvers.
Campbell, 24, from Hull, will take on his family friend John Joe Nevin, of Ireland, as he bids to fulfil his lifelong ambition of winning an Olympic title.
"It's all about the gold medal for me now," Campbell said.
"But I'm proud of what I've done so far and I'm happy to make my family proud and my little lad and my home town of Hull. The support I have received from home and in the arena has been amazing."
Welshman Evans will also hope to continue his magnificent run in the welterweight division.
Without a doubt one of the highlights of the day will be the final of the men's 4x100m relay final in which the world's fastest man Usain Bolt will bid for his third gold of the Games.
Before then Brazil will play Mexico in the final of the men's football tournament at Wembley. Brazil are the favourites to win.
After today's events, the Olympic Stadium will shut its doors to the public to prepare for the closing ceremony on Sunday evening, which is expected to attract a worldwide audience of around four billion people.
Games chairman Lord Coe described the closing ceremony as an "after-show party".
"It's not the opening ceremony but I think it will be great. It's basically a tribute to British music over the last few decades. It's fun."
Pop stars such as George Michael, the Pet Shop Boys, Jessie J and Tinie Tempah have been photographed at rehearsals. Reportedly the Spice Girls will also be making an appearance
