Britain's Alistair Brownlee won a brilliant Olympic triathlon gold with his younger brother Jonny in bronze as Spain's Javier Gomez took silver.
Britain's best gold total since the London Olympics of 1908 came courtesy of a dressage team of Carl Hester, Laura Bechtolsheimer and Charlotte Dujardin.
Laura Trott won a superb second gold medal of the Games with victory in the women's omnium. Having claimed gold in the women's team pursuit on Saturday, she is now a double Olympic and world champion at just 20 years of age.
Chris Hoy claimed a sixth Olympic gold medal to become the most successful British Olympian of all time. Having won gold on the first night of the track cycling in the men's team sprint, Hoy's triumph in the keirin was the perfect finale for Team GB.
