... and still to come:
6.0 Heptathlon 200m - that's four events completed.
6.30 Men's 10,000m Final - if SAID AOUITA could just brush up his starts a fraction, he'd have a full set from 100 -

The last of eight stories of the Special Operations Executive. Narrated by Michael Bryant In Malaya, as in Greece and Yugoslavia, SOE faced a problem: should it arm Communist guerillas? There was little choice.
The Japanese overran the Peninsula and Singapore in ten short weeks. SOE had to build the core of Malayan resistance from Chinese Communists already practised in the art of subversive operations - against British rule.
SOE officers remember the years that followed: hiding in the jungle with Communists, teaching them - among other things - to play Monopoly. But despite wartime camaraderie, SOE had opened a Pandora's box in Malaya. Three years after the Japanese surrender, the same SOE-trained guerillas were back in action. This time they were fighting to drive out the British in a war which was to last for 12 bitter years. The much-talked-about series

In another edition of Rock
Heroes, Dick Clark looks back at the semi-legendary, semi-comatose Bruno Radolini , the man who put the 'and' into rock and roll, who influenced a legion of megastars, took popular music by the throat and all but strangled it.
Using unique archive footage and the reminiscences of those whose lives and wallets he touched, a picture of Bruno is built up: from his early 'moptop' days, through psychedelia and Woodstock, to his disastrous flirtations with disco and glam-rock in the 1970s, when his erratic behaviour and frequent disappearances threatened to make obscurity fashionable. Yet today, Bruno is back, with hit singles, a smash album and stunning live performances - but hey, rock fans, did he ever go away? Contributors include
Phil Collins , Elton John , Michael J. Fox , Wolfman Jack , Ringo Starr , Jamaal Subgum III
Grace Slick, The Temptations The Bee Gees, Chip Monck Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Willis
