Today at the Olympics – Day 13

DON'T MISS
After a fallow day for Britain, the pressure is ramped up on Keri-Anne Payne to deliver in the 10k open-water swim. Hyde Park crowds have been enormous during the Games, and this should be no exception as the world's best do battle in the Serpentine.

Swimming - women's 10km open-water - 12pm

BIG NAMES IN ACTION
Usain Bolt versus Yohan Blake, part two. Bolt took the honours in the 100m final, but Blake has his chance to make amends over the longer distance. Neither man has had to extend himself to get into the final, so the outcome is anyone's guess.

Athletics - finals from 19:00

MORE ESSENTIAL VIEWING
If you'll excuse the lame pun, women's boxing has been a huge hit at these Olympics. Expect ear-splitting noise as Ireland's Katie Taylor and Britain's Nicola Adams go for gold on finals day at ExCel.

Boxing - women's gold medal matches - 16:30

THE LONDON 2012 VIBE
Calmer: We probably needed 24 hours to calm down, and now we have had it. No British medal-winner on Wednesday has taken the edge off Olympic fever. We can hardly complain given our amazing success previously, but it would be nice to get back on the gold trail. Over to you, Keri-Anne...

WATER COOLER CHAT
What better way to raise spirits after a lean day for Britain than with a picture-based story about why beach volleyball players don't get sand on them. Look, if you think it's sexist, let us reassure you that if male swimmers didn't get wet, we would have done a feature on that.

FRONT PAGE OF THE DAY

The Guardian has been the only paper to give The Times a consistent run for its money, and pulls out a nice win with this BMX photo.

LONDON WEATHER FORECAST

A relatively baking day in store, with sunny spells and a top temperature of 26°C - and it's only going to get hotter.
