Today at the Olympics: Day 15

DON'T MISS

One of the highlights of any Olympics - the final night of athletics. The focus will be on Mo Farah's bid to complete a remarkable 10,000m-5000m double. It looks too close to call between Farah and the Ethiopian Dejen Gebremeskel. Also on the track - Jamaica's sprint heroes go in the 4x100m relay.

Athletics - finals from 19:00

BIG NAMES IN ACTION

The Olympics is where football gets put in its place, as it goes along in the background, largely unnoticed. But make sure you catch Neymar and company as a fine Brazilian team go for gold against Mexico.

Football - men's final 15:00

MORE ESSENTIAL VIEWING

Twelve days after finishing fourth in the synchro competition, Tom Daley is back in the medal hunt. Despite only qualifying 15th, the Briton has a chance of getting on the podium, but China's imperious Qui Bo will take some beating for gold.

Diving - men's 10m platform - semi-final 10:00, final 20:30

THE LONDON 2012 VIBE

Going out with a bang. Last Saturday we finished the day with six golds. A similar haul today is extremely unlikely - but let's just enjoy the last full day of Olympic action on these shores. With over 30 gold medals won today, you can't move for top-class sport.

WATER COOLER CHAT

Ever lose concentration on the job? Of course you have. So spare a thought for the bungling officials who plain forgot to measure one poor hammer thrower's effort in the women's final. What's more, the thrower in question was the world record holder and hot favourite Betty Heidler, and her effort was worth a bronze medal. Read the full, amazing story here.

TODAY ON EUROSPORT YAHOO!

It is a huge day of action, with 32 gold medals up for grabs in 15 sports. Let our live coverage keep you up-to-date on all the day's action with live text comments on everything that matters.

London Spy brings you an alternative view from the Olympics - including China's plan to win every single medal in 2020 and the frankly epic video of high jump gold medallist Ivan Ukhov jumping drunk.

I will be tweeting from the volleyball early on, and I'll also recount my Friday night at the boxing - thereafter I'm confined to barracks. Boo...
