What a roller coaster of emotions we saw today at the Olympic rowing competition at Eton Dorney and plenty of medals for Londoners!

Gold for TeamGB's men's coxless four, including Andrew Triggs Hodge and Pete Reed, followed swiftly by another gold in the women's lightweight double sculls, featuring Sophie Hosking. Then we thought - and hoped - we might just see a third gold as part of this rush for Mark Hunter and Zac Purchase in the men's lightweight double sculls. However it wasn't to be for the pair who not only faced technical problems with their boat, but were then pipped at the finish by the Danish duo.

There is no shame in a silver medal but Londoner Mark was clearly gutted.. so much so veteran rower and Olympic legend Sir Steve Redgrave dipped away from his broadcasting duties to help the 34 year old as he made his way from the boat, physically and mentally exhausted. There is plenty more support out there for Mark, not least from fans at the club where he trained as a youngster - Poplar, Blackwall and District Rowing Club - where we sent our reporter Liz Wickham today.

Let's hope there will be tears of joy later for London Tonight favourite Mo Farah who hopes to win the 10,000 metres in front of a home crowd. When I interviewed him last year after his victory at the Bupa 10k in London, he said gold today would be "amazing... but any medal would be good". We can only wait with bated breath to see what happens tonight in the stadium...

Away from the Olympics, it was exactly a year ago today that Mark Duggan was shot dead by police in Tottenham, sparking riots and looting across the Capital which was then echoed in many cities around England. Tonight his family will be holding a vigil as they say they are still waiting for a full explanation of how he died.

We're on air at 5:30pm - hope to see you then for all the above and more.
