What you missed: Day Eleven overnight highlights from Rio


It was an historic day for Great Britain as they overhauled their previous best medals total at an overseas Games with nine top-three finishes on day 11.

Boxer Josh Buatsi's bronze took Britain to 48 medals as they surpassed the previous best tally in Beijing eight years ago, and they had 50 in the bag by the end of play on Tuesday.

Here, we reflect on Tuesday's action:

Great Britain's dominance continued in the Olympic Velodrome where Jason Kenny took his career gold tally to six with victory in the Keirin to add to his team sprint and individual sprint golds. Kenny's fiancee Laura Trott won the women's omnium for her second gold of the Games. There was also sprint silver for Becky James and bronze for Katy Marchant as Britain finished with 11 medals in track cycling in Rio - six golds, four silvers and one bronze.

Nicola Adams became the first British boxer to win two Olympic medals in 56 years when she beat Tetyana Kob to advance to the semi-finals of the women's flyweight division. Victory ensured a second consecutive medal for the 33-year-old, the first British boxer to achieve the feat since Scotsman Dick McTaggart claimed gold and bronze in 1956 and 1960 respectively. Super-heavyweight Joe Joyce is also guaranteed a medal after beating Uzbekistan's Bakhodir Jalolov. Buatsi had to be content with bronze after losing his light-heavyweight semi-final on points to Adilbek Niyazymbetov of Kazakhstan.

Great Britain enjoyed a golden day at the sailing, with Giles Scott wrapping up Finn glory before Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark all but secured the women's 470 crown.

Jack Laugher celebrated a second Olympic medal with an individual silver in the three metres springboard behind China's Cao Yuan. The 21-year-old had already claimed a stunning gold with Chris Mears in the synchronised three metres springboard last week and continued his sparkling form on Tuesday.

Amy Tinkler became the youngest Great Britain Olympic medallist in 32 years when she finished third in the women's floor behind all-conquering American Simone Biles, and Nile Wilson wrapped up an extraordinary seven-medal haul from the Rio Games for his gymnastics team when he also took bronze in the horizontal bar.

Coming up on Day 12

The 470 sailing medals will be decided with men's pair Luke Patience and Chris Grube, and Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark in the corresponding women's event, looking to add to Britain's medal tally.

Savannah Marshall, a former world champion, goes up against Holland's Nouchka Fontijn in the quarter-final of the women's boxing event. Victory for the Hartlepool-born middleweight would ensure at least a bronze medal.

The women's hockey team have quietly, but authoritatively, gone about their business with six wins from as many matches to charge into the semi-finals, where they will face New Zealand.

Dina Asher-Smith, Britain's best-ever female sprinter, will be eyeing a medal in the women's 200 metres final in the early hours of Thursday morning. Jazmin Sawyers also competes in the long jump final.
