Football clockwatch: Leicester v Swansea, Watford v Arsenal and more - live! — Updated Newcastle and Ipswich are understood to have agreed a fee for the transfer of striker Daryl Murphy to the north-east club. The 33-year-old Republic of Ireland international has made four appearances for Ipswich this term but is yet to get on the scoresheet.

Charley Hull misses out on bronze while Inbee Park wins golf gold — Charley Hull finished two shots off the bronze medal in the women's Olympic golf competition won by Inbee Park. The South Korean finished on 16 under par, five shots clear of New Zealand's Lydia Ko. A late flurry of birdies from the Kiwi, including one on the 18th green, relegated China's Shanshan Feng to third.

Kate French and Samantha Murray finish out of modern pentathlon medals — The IOC president, Thomas Bach, was present on a ribald, boozy and tremendously fun night at the Deodoro Stadium to see Australia's Chloe Esposito overcome a 45-second deficit to win gold in the women's modern pentathlon.

British sprint relay teams reach Rio finals but men have no fun in lane one — Spectators who turned up for the morning session at the Olympic Stadium on Thursday were treated to a proper dog's breakfast of a baton exchange by the American quartet attempting to qualify for the women's 4x100m final. Many left a couple of hours later oblivious to the fact that, despite messing up their second handover, the four sprinters had been handed a reprieve.

Laura Trott and British Cycling ready to do ‘hard yards’ after Rio 2016 — Flushed with success and chatting to a huddle of journalists after winning her second Rio gold in the omnium, Laura Trott made an intriguing admission. "I know the next three years are going to be just as hard as after London," she said.

Britain’s Laura Trott well on course to retain women’s omnium title — Laura Trott began the defence of her omnium title in splendid style and leads the multi-discipline event at the halfway point. The women's equivalent of the bedlam-on-bikes in which Mark Cavendish won silver, this often frantic, whirring cavalcade of colour is a consistent crowd-pleaser.

Mark Cavendish frustrated by omnium error in quest for Rio 2016 medal — A lot done, more to do. Mark Cavendish goes into the final three events of the chaotic carnival of wacky races that is the omnium in the bronze-medal position but was left thumping his handlebars in frustration after an error in the elimination race that could prove extremely costly when it comes to deciding the podium placings.

Sir Bradley Wiggins: British Cycling will clear Shane Sutton — Sir Bradley Wiggins has denied any knowledge of a culture of discrimination in British Cycling and thinks the organisation's former technical director, Shane Sutton, will be cleared of allegations of sexism and bullying. Wiggins said Sutton should subsequently be reinstated and revealed the Australian is still acting as a mentor for some British athletes competing in Rio.

Jason Kenny and Callum Skinner win gold and silver in individual sprint — Jason Kenny has emerged with the gold in a fascinating battle of the Brits at the Olympic Velodrome, downing his room-mate and team-mate Callum Skinner in the men's sprint.
