Events to watch

Road cycling reaches its climax after no shortage of weekend controversy with the respective time trials, while the first rowing finals take place at Lagoa Stadium. Jack Beaumont, Sam Townsend, Peter Lambert and Angus Groom compete in the men's quadruple sculls, while defending champions Helen Glover and Heather Stanning compete in the women's pair semis.

As if that was not quite enough to whet your appetite, there is also the men's individual all-around gymnastics featuring Max Whitlock and, at the Aquatics Stadium, the finals of the men's 100m freestyle, 200m breaststroke and women's 200m butterfly and 4x200m freestyle relay. Medals are up for grabs in the men's 3m synchronised diving, judo, shooting, men's K1 canoe slalom, table tennis, weightlifting and fencing.

Volleyball, water polo, archery, dressage, rugby sevens, boxing, basketball, hockey, football and sailing are also on the agenda.

Briton to watch

Fresh from breezing to a historic third Tour de France title, usually dominant Team Sky rider Chris Froome was unable to scoop Great Britain's first medal of the Rio Olympics after finishing 12th in a hectic and technically difficult men's road race on Saturday. Greg van Avermaet of Belgium eventually claimed gold ahead of Jakob Fuglsang and Rafal Majka in a thrilling sprint finish after Vincenzo Nibali, Sergio Henao and Geraint Thomas all crashed on the final descent.

Froome has described that event as "seriously full-on", but should fancy his chances of success during a hilly individual time trial encompassing two laps and 54.6km of the course. The 31-year-old, who will be competing against Thomas after Team GB were handed a second berth following injuries sustained by the likes of Nibali and Richie Porte, is considered the favourite after claiming second place behind Tom Dumoulin at the Tour's sombre first TT before later triumphing from Sallanches to the ski resort of Megeve.

He claimed bronze at London 2012 behind Sir Bradley Wiggins and Tony Martin, but has been boosted in Rio by the arrival of Tim Kerrison, Team Sky's head of athlete performance. Dumoulin, who quit the road race early in a bid to save himself for the time trial while still recovering from a broken wrist, Germany's multiple world champion Martin, Rohan Dennis of Australia, Fabio Cancellara and Vasil Kiryienka will be among his main rivals.
