Historic hockey gold, Bolt's golden farewell and other things you missed overnight in Rio


It was another corker overnight, as GB brought in two golds, a silver and a bronze on day 14 of the Games.

We're just five medals short of our London 2012 haul with two days to go.

Here's a round-up of all the action you may have missed while you were asleep.

The second oldest Briton to win an Olympic gold, the 58-year-old produced two clear rounds to go into a jump-off, where he went clear again.

Lutalo Muhammad's disappointment was hard to watch as he lost in the last second of the taekwondo final.

In sharp contrast to Jade Jones' elation at her win the night before, Muhammad was inconsolable in an interview with the BBC after his loss to Cheick Salah Cisse. He lost out on gold, but will take home the silver medal.

Cisse connected with a head shot in the final second of the -80kg category in taekwondo to win 8-6.

Bolt's lightening pace secures the 'triple triple'.
