She may not have done as well as she hoped in the pole vault final, but Holly Bleasdale has something else to celebrate after her boyfriend proposed.

After finishing in sixth place, Bleasdale, 20, from Wigan, said she was "disappointed" by her performance in the Olympic Stadium.

However things looked up for her later in the night as she tweeted: "6th in the Olympics and @bradshaaaw proposes to me :) epic day!!!"

Her boyfriend Paul Bradshaw wrote on Twitter: "I have just proposed to @HollyBleasdale and she said yes!!!!! Best day ever!"

Nicola Adams became the second Great Britain boxer after Luke Campbell to guarantee at least a bronze medal after a comprehensive 16-7 win over Stoyka Petrova in her women's flyweight quarter-final at ExCeL today.

The Leeds 29-year-old was simply too sharp for her Bulgarian opponent, wobbling Petrova with a short left and a right over the top in the first round, and again with a stabbing left in the second to lead 5-3 at the half-way stage.

Adams pulled away to take a six-point lead into the final round and book at least bronze - and a titanic showdown with Indian sensation Mary Kom in the semi-finals on Wednesday.
