- and well done Sarah Storey!

I wonder if Michael Phelps has ever considered taking up cycling?

Pretty sure his priorities are: Getting married, raising his impossibly cute son, having lots of great sex with his stunning wife, doing enough endorsement to keep cash flowing, smoking lots of weed, not getting up before dawn and training 14 hours a day. Not necessarily in that order.

I knew it !

I turn my back for a few hours and they go and beat their London 2012 medal total. Next target, beating their all-time best, Seoul 1988, when they got 65 Gold, 65 Silver, 53 Bronze (but they still came third- there were only 60 other teams in the competition that year).

And in the end ..... second, with 64 gold, 39 silver, 44 bronze.

Aim to beat the Seoul '88 total in Tokyo?

Britain finished second in the medal table, ahead of China for the first time, winning 27 golds, 23 silvers and 17 bronzes - and became the first team to win more medals after hosting the Games.

"That feat created history as we became the first nation ever to win more medals at a Games immediately after hosting, surpassing our achievement of 65 medals at London 2012," said British Olympic Association (BOA) chairman Lord Coe, who collected the award.

BOA chief executive Bill Sweeney said: "It's a fantastic achievement for both the women's hockey team and the whole of the British Olympic Association. We've had an incredible year."

There were also awards for some of those behind some of the most memorable and inspirational moments at the Rio Games:
