Dressage became our new favourite event, drama in cycling and everything you might have missed overnight in Rio


If you're still reeling from the weekend, there's no time to stop and take stock of Team GB's success in Rio. Our medal tally rose to 16 on Monday thanks to everyone's favourite event: the dressage.

Here's everything you need to catch up from day 10.

Charlotte Dujardin trotted to gold in the dressage.

Dujardin smashed the Olympic record for the grand prix freestyle with a score of 93.857%, bringing her level with cyclist Laura Trott on three golds.

She told the BBC after her win: "It means the absolute world to me."

Adorably, her fiance Dean Golding was in the crowd sporting a sign on his t-shirt saying: "Can we get married now?"

In response to this, Dujardin said: "Dean had already proposed. I have already got a ring on my finger, the wally. He just wants the whole world to know now, so he secures me and no-one takes me away."

Being able to call your boyfriend a wally: now that's true love.

While we were all proud of Dujardin's achievement, a lot of us are still quite confused by dressage as an Olympic event.

Mark Cavendish bagged silver.

As a 30-time Tour de France stage winner, we expected big things from Cavendish and he didn't disappoint. He stormed home in the flying lap with a time of 12.793 seconds to nab his first Olympic medal.

He told the BBC he was "super happy" with his achievement, adding: "I would have liked gold, but I have got my Olympic medal."

Perhaps the best moment of the day was when Cavendish crashed Chris' Hoy's interview to ask for an autograph.

However, his success was not without drama: a mid-race crash, which appeared to be of Cavendish's making, means he might face protest from rivals or a sanction from race officials which could prevent him from standing on that podium.

Some people on Twitter had zero chill about this.

Keep your eyes peeled for more cycling today as Laura Trott enters her bid for her fourth gold in the women's Omnium.

The first British woman since 1924 won an Olympic hammer medal.

Sophie Hitchon

Former ballet dancer Sophie Hitchon only just squeezed into the final as 11th of 12 qualifiers, but did us proud. She launched the hammer a whopping 74.54 metres.

She said: "I can believe it a little bit because training has been going so well but to do it in competition is a little bit different. I knew it was there if I pulled it together and it is a bit special."

There was drama on the athletics track.

In one of the most nail-biting finishes we've seen this Olympics, Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas dived across the finish line of the 400m final. She beat the American world champion Allyson Felix by just 0.07 seconds.

A lot of Twitter found her dive pretty relatable.

Simone Biles missed out on her fifth gold.

The medallists from the women's beam final.

Many of us expected gymnastics wunderkind Biles to make a clean sweep of five gold medals, but in a shock turn of event she placed third in her fourth event. Sanne Wevers of Holland scooped gold and fellow American Lauren Hernandez came in second for the beam competition.

Biles said: "I'm not disappointed in the medal that I received because anyone would love to have a bronze at an Olympic Games."

She is still the favourite to win gold in today's floor competition.

Whilst the world was pretty devastated by her miss, Biles was pretty pleased with her bronze.
