JONATHAN MCEVOY: Hannah Mills became the most successful female Olympic sailor in history by taking gold in the women’s 470 as Britain continued to rule the waves. After a terrific Tuesday at Enoshima Yacht Centre that saw two golds and a silver for the British team – including a second title for Giles Scott in the Finn – it was Mills who took centre stage with her team-mate Eilidh McIntyre. They came into the medal race with a commanding 14-point lead but even that margin of advantage can count for little with double points on offer and the tension ratcheted up. Scott nearly squandered a big lead before winning in the dying moments.

Frazer Clarke will take bronze after losing his super-heavyweight semi-final against Uzbekistan brute Bakhodir Jalolov.  The Burton-on-Trent fighter, 29, bravely stepped into the ring against the heavy favourite and delivered a huge right hand in the second – practically the first glove landed on the 27-year-old – during the Games so far.  At the start of the third he needed treatment for the cut over the right eye and returned to the battle needing a miracle. But another shot from Jalolov reopened the wound, obtained during his quarter-final win, and the referee called time on the clash.
