Four years ago, Great Britain's home Olympic Games was best remembered for their "Super Saturday" in the Olympic Stadium as Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Greg Rutherford all won gold medals.

All three won medals on Saturday night in Brazil, but only Farah would retain his title. The Somalian-born star came back from falling during the race to defeat Paul Tanui on the home straight. Farah's win by less than half a second, means he becomes the first Briton to win three Olympic gold medals on the track.

Jessica Ennis-Hill lost here Heptathlon crown by an agonising 45 points to Nafissatou Thiam of Belgium. Ennis-Hill had to beat Thiam by around nine seconds in the 800-metre to win gold, but Thiam held on to win Belgium's second gold medal of the Games. After the event the 2012 champion hinted that she may retire.

Jeff Henderson won the men's long jump final with his last jump of 8.38 metres to win by a single centimetre. The American pipped South Africa's Luvo Manyonga and former Olympic and reigning World champion Greg Rutherford to the win.

The swimming programme ended at Rio 2016, with Michael Phelps winning his sixth medal of the Games. Phelps swam the third leg as the Americans overcame Britain in the 4x100-metre individual medley to win his fifth gold medal in Brazil. He is to retire from swimming with 28 Olympic medals, including 23 golds.

Puetro Rico's Monica Puig, became the unlikely Women's tennis champion in Rio.

Puig's win is Puerto Rico's first ever Olympic gold medal.
