    From Anon: "Loving having swimming on TV (/online, it's pretty much the same!) Glad to see England doing so well, andÃ&; I love watching my sport on TV. Just in from a night out, can't wait for some epic races and hopefully some amazing English swims!"

  2. 04:44 Hockey  

    For Fabulous Friday, see Champagne Saturday. It's a cracking start to the day and in the hockey we've got a mini-classic on our hands in the men's Group B contest between New Zealand and England. Right now it's half-time and our brave boys are beating the Black Sticks 3-2. You can watch the second half online and on the red button if you're in the UK. Have some of that.

  3. 04:40 England The great Rebecca Adlington:  

    "Some people on the team have been a lot more sick than me so I am not going to complain there. I've come here to do a job and that was to swim and to race and I've come away with two gold medals."

  4. 04:36 Swimming  

    Hey, our lads and lasses did pretty well at the Dr SP Mukherjee Aquatics Complex on Fabulous Friday, didn't they? Thirteen medals in the penultimate pool session in total, with golds for the great Rebecca Adlington (I'm sticking with great, so sue me), Liam Tancock and James Goddard. Today is the last day of the swimming meet, and heats are on-going as I type these very words.

    From EpicallyFailing: "Just finished watching yesterday's action on iPlayer, now on to today. 16 hours straight is the plan. Wish me luck."

    God bless you my son. You're an inspiration to us all.

    On Twitter: "According to India's Mail Today only 7 people watched the India v Malawi netball match in a stadium that holds 4500!! [Meanwhile at the pool] Jemma, Ellen & Jess Dickons all thru to 200 fly final. Reigning champ Jess Schipper (Aus) is fastest."

  8. 04:19 Commentary  

    And if that's not one of the greatest starts to a Day Six of the Commonwealth Games in not just recent memory but the long, proud history of the competition, you know I'm not quite sure what it would take to be so.

  9. 04:15 Medal alert ENGLAND WIN GOLD MEDAL  

    ENGLAND'S JO JACKSON has won a gold medal in the women's 20k race walk in Delhi in a time of 1:34.22. Her achievement broke a 20-year stranglehold of the event by Australia, whose top walker, Claire Tallent, had to settle for silver. Kenya's Grace Njue took the bronze.

  10. 04:11 Commentary  

    I wasn't only being facetious, though. There is an actual early-morning gold medal to tell you about - Australia's Jared Tallent has won the men's 20 kilometres walk, maintaining his country's rich history in the event (sure I've read that sentence before this week). His team-mate Luke Adams finished second, with India's Harminder Singh third. BUT WAIT! Check this out...

  11. 04:05 Commentary  

    Yeah, you know the score - it's day six of the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, and as well as millions of medals being up for grabs for the all-conquering Australians, there are a few around for everyone else too. Still, it'll all be different when the Ashes bandwagon rolls into town next month ;)

  12. 04:00 Medal alert Australia win gold  

    I mean, these days just start to all blend into one, don't they?

The Commonwealth Games swimming competition comes to a conclusion on day six with the dominant Australia team eager to finish on a high.

Australia have won 15 golds and have the relays to come, with England hoping to spoil the party on Saturday.

In the athletics, England duo Chris Tomlinson and Greg Rutherford go in the men's long jump final.

Wales' Andrew Selby and Pakistan's Haroon Khan, brother of Amir, will battle for boxing flyweight bronze.

Khan believes he should have been picked for Great Britain's squad after declaring himself the best flyweight fighter in the country.

Selby said: "Haroon's had many chances with the GB squad but he's just ended up getting hurt. I'm not the greatest at sparring but I still did him. He rushes in without thinking and I'll just pick him off."

Khan opted to fight for Pakistan at the Games and said he bore no ill will towards his Great Britain rivals.

The 19-year-old said: "This is the time for me to prove everyone wrong and I'm sure I'll do that."

Meanwhile, Olympic bronze medallist Paddy Barnes of Northern Ireland takes on Australia's Andrew Moloney for a place in the light flyweight quarter-finals.

The fights will take place between 0830-0930 BST.

There are nine swimming finals on the last day of competition in the pool.

England's Simon Burnett is hoping to add a 50m freestyle medal (1130 BST) to the silver he won in the 100m free.

He is also likely to be part of England's 4x100m medley (1321 BST) team, which will battle the might of Australia.

Australia's Leisel Jones will be hoping to win her 10th Commonwealth gold - a feat only achieved by compatriots Susie O'Neill and Ian Thorpe.

Nine titles will be decided in the athletics, with England duo Tomlinson and Rutherford going in the men's long jump final (1325 BST).

Tomlinson suffered a foot injury in qualifying but is set to compete after undergoing a medical assessment on his foot.

England's Conrad Williams is the only representative from the home nations taking part in the men's 400m final (1425 BST).

In tennis, England's Ross Hutchins and Ken Skupski will have gold in their sights when they face Australian fourth seeds Paul Hanley and Peter Luczak in the men's doubles final.

Before that, India's Sania Mirza will be hoping to cheer the home crowd with victory over top seed Anastasia Rodionova in the women's final.

The mixed doubles final could also take place, with Scotland's Jocelyn Rae and Colin Fleming up against Australians Rodionova and Paul Hanley.

In table tennis, England face Singapore in the men's team final at 1430 BST.

Four golds will be decided in the shooting, three in the wrestling and two in the weightlifting. -->
