  • If you've failed to get tickets, you've got until 11pm to snap up seats for the rowing or Olympic Park entrance (£10 / £5)
  • The Olympic torch has been handed over to Princess Anne. It's flying to the UK tomorrow on a specially chartered plane, in the company of David Beckham, Seb Coe and Boris Johnson. Lucky torch
  • Sally Gunnell beat Chris Boardman in a race from Liverpool Street to the Olympic Park. She was running, he was cycling. Seriously: she beat him and he was on a bike
