It was gold rush for Team GB today in Rio as the country enjoyed one of the most glittering nights in its sporting history.
Britain's Olympic heroes won six gold medals and three silvers to leapfrog China into second place in the medal table. The medal haul is the country's greatest in a single day since 1908.

There have been so many great performances by British athletes this Olympics (not all of them gold). It has been a pleasure to watch.

Technology and finance definitely have played a significant part in sport in wealthy countries but without hard work and dedication not possible to achieve success. Congratulations to Team GB.

No need. Australia are amazing competitors for their population size. Although its great to see us beat Australia in anything, respect is high for you guys.

China's population is TWENTY-THREE times bigger than UK's... So either Team GB punches massively able its weight or China are major UNDER-acheivers.
