Mo Farah has achieved what he set out to do in Rio by securing the “double double” at the 2016 Olympics after winning the 5,000m final on Saturday night.

Again, like the 10,000m victory for the Great Britain star, Farah was made to work hard for the win and had to produce one of his trademark sprint finishes to complete his historic feat.

The 33-year-old now has four Olympic gold medals to his name after he crossed the line in 13 minutes 3.30 seconds, with the American Paul Kipkemoi Chelimo and Ethiopa’s Hagos Gebrhiwet finishing second and third respectively.

Nicola Adams also made history on Saturday as she became the first British boxer to retain an Olympic title for 92 years as she managed to beat France’s Sarah Ourahmoune in the flyweight final.

Adams was delighted with the unanimous points decision victory and the 33-year-old is still in shock about what she had achieved.

“The gold rush continues,” Adams told the BBC. “I’m now officially the most accomplished amateur boxer Great Britain has ever had. I can’t believe it.”

Meanwhile Britain’s Joe Joyce will fight for an Olympic gold medal after beating Kazakhstan’s Ivan Dychko to reach the final of the men’s super-heavyweight boxing.

Joyce will be going toe-to-toe with Frenchman Tony Yoka for the gold medal at 19:15 BST on Sunday (Yoka 6/5, Joyce 8/13 – Men’s Bout).

Bianca Walkden won Britain’s third taekwondo medal with bronze in the +67kg category, while Vicky Holland secured Britain’s first ever medal in the women’s triathlon by finishing third.

Finally Britain’s women claimed bronze in the 4x400m relay, in what was their first medal in the event since back in 1992, to ensure Team GB surpassed their medal haul of London 2012.

It was the American women who managed to secure the gold and beat rivals Jamaica in the process.
