Pick of the action

30 GOLDS AT STAKE

ATHLETICS

Women's 800m, men's 5,000m (tomorrow, from 8.15am)

Dominant in their respective disciplines this year, can Caster Semenya and Mo Farah go on to clinch gold in the women's 800m and men's 5,000m races respectively?

FOOTBALL

Men's final: Brazil v Germany (tomorrow, 4.30am)

Not to mention avenging that hideous 7-1 semi-final thrashing by the Germans at the 2014 World Cup, which they also hosted.

GOLF

Women's final round (from 6pm)

The top women's golfers vie for the first women's golf gold since 1900.
