Team GB finally struck gold on home soil on Day Five, as rowers Helen Glover and Heather Stanning stormed to victory in the pair’s final.

Later on Wednesday, Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins eclipsed Sir Steve Redgrave as Great Britain’s most successful Olympian by claiming gold in the time trial, taking his personal tally to seven medals. Wiggins’ GB team-mate Chris Froome took bronze in the same event.

Elsewhere, Scot Michael Jamieson claimed a silver medal and broke the British 200m breaststroke record for a third time at the Aquatics centre to move Great Britain up to 11th place in the medals table.
