The chairman of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Locog) and twice 1500m champion, Lord Sebastian Coe, described Saturday 4 August as "the greatest night of British athletics".
The country bagged two rowing golds (men's four and women's lightweight double sculls) and a track cycling gold (women's team pursuit), which set the tone on an epic Super Saturday before the athletes took charge. Heptathlete Jessica Ennis, long jumper Greg Rutherford and 10,000m runner Mo Farah all triumphed at the Olympic Stadium. The six gold medals won on the day is Great Britain's best performance since the London Games of 1908. Team GB are now third in the medal table - with 14 golds, seven silvers and eight bronzes - and keen to add to their tally on Sunday.
Here are the highlights for Sunday 5 August (all times BST):
Tennis: British number one Andy Murray returns to the All England Club's Centre Court for another battle with world number one Roger Federer in the men's singles final at 2pm, just a month after losing Wimbledon to the Swiss. The Scot was in sublime form in the semi final, where he beat Novak Djokovic of Serbia 7-5, 7-5. The Olympic final will be played over five sets, unlike the three-set format of earlier rounds. Murray will later team up with Laura Robson to play Max Mirnyi and Victoria Azarenka in the mixed doubles final as the 25-year-old attempts to become a double Olympic champion.
Athletics: The men's 100m final, arguably the most eagerly awaited event of London 2012, takes place at 9.50pm at the Olympic stadium. The race is considered a straight fight between defending champion Usain Bolt of Jamaica and his compatriot and world champion Yohan Blake. Blake had the better of Bolt in recent meetings, including the Jamaican time trial in June and last year's World Championships. But the big question is no matter who wins it, how fast will they go? Because even leaving the two Jamaicans aside, five other sprinters - Justin Gatlin, Asafa Powell, Keston Bledman, Ryan Bailey and Tyson Gay - have run sub-9.90s times this season - and the final could well be the first in which all eight athletes finish in under 10 seconds. However, before the final comes the little matter of the 100m semi-final, set for 7.45pm and British hopes for representation in the final will rest with James Dasaolu, Dwain Chambers and Adam Gemili.
Meanwhile, Team GB will be hoping their super run in athletics carries over, with Christine Ohuruogu running in the women's 400m that takes place at 9.10pm and Yamile Aldama in the women's triple jump at 7.35pm.
Sailing: Defending champion and three-time Olympic gold medallist Ben Ainslie will go into the decisive medal race in the Finn class at 2pm with Jonas Hogh-Christensen of Denmark standing between the 35-year-old and a fourth consecutive gold. Meanwhile, Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson have dominated the Star class so far and offer a bigger medal chance for Britain in their race, set to take place at 1pm.
Gymnastics: Louis Smith, who won bronze on the pommel horse at Beijing 2008, is a candidate for gold in Sunday's final, set for 3.40pm, after finishing first in qualification. The 23-year-old led his team to an unexpected bronze medal last week, while team-mate Dan Purvis could feature in the floor final at 2pm.
Track Cycling: Ed Clancy will start the final day of omnium in fourth, after winning the flying lap on Saturday. The 27-year-old finished 11th in the points race and fifth in the elimination stage of the multi-discipline race and with some of Clancy's stronger events to come - the individual pursuit at 10am, the scratch at 5pm and the time trial at 6.15pm, there is every possibility of another medal from the Velodrome for Team GB.
Boxing: Women's boxing makes its Olympic debut at 1.30pm, with three big British medal hopes in Nicola Adams, Natasha Jonas and Savannah Marshall.

Women's Volleyball: Great Britain v Japan at 2.45pm
Women's Handball: Great Britain v Croatia at 4.15pm
