Relive Grandstand's live coverage of Day Five of the London Olympics.
11:00am: UPDATE: Apparently Lauren Jackson didn't break the point-scoring record after all...
It was reported earlier that Jackson broke the Olympics women's basketball point-scoring record, but the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) has issued a statement saying that is incorrect.
"There was a duplicate of the Brazilian former player Janeth Arcain in FIBA's database. Accordingly, Janeth Arcain's Olympic points total is 535, making her the current all-time women's Olympic scoring record holder. She leads Lauren Jackson, currently second with 497 points."
9.00am: And that wraps up Day Five at the Olympic Games. Scroll down to catch up with all the action, including all the Aussies, on another busy day in London. Of course, we will be back again in a few hours for more live coverage. Until then, thanks for stopping by and check out what's on the menu for Day Six:
8.46am: Australia's Sarah Tait and Kate Hornsey told Grandstand's Tim Gavel they took great pride from their silver medal effort in the women's pair at the Olympic rowing regatta.
They also spoke to ABC News Breakfast from London:
8.32am: Earlier today Team GB progressed to a quarter-final clash against Japan courtesy of a 1-0 win over Luis Suarez's Uruguay in Cardiff. All four quarters will be played this weekend: Japan v Egypt, Mexico v Senegal and Brazil v Honduras.
8.30am: A huge roar as English super heavy hope Antony Joshua is awarded a 17-16 victory over Cuban challenger Erislandy Savon Cotilla. There is plenty of pressure on the 22-year-old's shoulders as he carries the number two seed into the quarter-finals.
8.15am: Australia's final boxing competitor, super heavyweight Johan Linde, has been defeated in his round of 16 bout. Linde handled himself well against Beijing silver medallist Zhilei Zhang before wearing a heavy blow in the second round which forced the referee to stop the contest. Linde will have a bit of a headache tomorrow, but considering his Games are over, it is probably a bit of a preview for the rest of his morning's over the next week-and-a-half.
"I was surprised the referee stopped it. I felt OK after three or four seconds, but I was behind on points so I guess that is why he stopped it," Linde said.
"I have been hit much harder.
"I did my best. He was just a better boxer. It was my first really big competition. I will be back."
8.12am: The Aussies are out in the group stages. They go down in a cracking contest to the Czech Republic 21-16, 18-21, 15-11. Their third defeat draws the curtains on Natalie Cook's magnificent beach volleyball and Olympics career. She has played at five Games, winning a memorable gold in Sydney and bronze in Atlanta with long-time partner Kerri Potharst. She has been a fan favourite out at Horse Guards Parade this week, and the fans, including plenty of Aussies, rise to say one last goodbye.
"I don't want to leave, this atmosphere is amazing. It's the greatest thing on earth," Cook said.
"I have been privileged to be part of it and I could not be prouder.
"If I inspired just one Aussie kid who will say to his mother 'Mum, I want to play beach volleyball', I am happy.
"I am proud to be an Olympian and an Australian."
7.57am: The Australian women towelled up Great Britain 16-3 earlier in the day, 10 of those goals came in the second half. It seems the Brits weren't too happy with some of the 'dirty pool' by the Stingrays. But Aussie coach Greg McFadden told his British counterpart to "stop whinging".
7.45am: Plenty of action out at the ExCel Arena in the fencing. Korean Kim Jiyeon beat Russian Sofya Velikaya 15-9 to win the women's sabre gold. Jiyeon earlier ended American flag bearer Mariel Zagunis's bid for a third successive gold with a 15-13 semi-final victory. In the men's epee, Venezuela's Ruben Limardo Gascon broke his country's 44-year gold medal drought when he defeated Norway's Bartosz Piasecki 15-10. Australians really don't have much to complain about.
7.20am: After Lleyton Hewitt pushed Novak Djokovic all the way, he teamed up with Sam Stosur to defeat fourth seeds Marcin Matkowski and Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 6-3, 6-3.
"That's the best we've played together today. Playing Olympics for your country is a pretty big honour for both of us, we are out there giving 100 per cent," said Hewitt.
Hewitt added he was hoping for another crack at a grand slam title at Wimbledon.
"The way that I played today against Novak I want to have another crack at Wimbledon, the tournament, so we will wait and see."
7.08am: James Magnussen is about to front the press at a media conference. Apparently sitting next to Nathan Adrian. Never much between them.
7.04am: The Aussie team of Nat Cook and Tamsin Hinchley are digging in for their final prelim match against Czech duo Marketa Slukova. Australia needs a win to stand any chance of making it to the next round.
6.57am: Jai Tapu Opetaia, the baby of the Australian team at 17, is denied a first round victory against heavyweight contender Teymur Mamadov, world championship silver medallist and European champions, by just one point. In a very tight 12-11 affair, the young Aussie did more than hold his own, sending a massive scare through the Azerbaijan camp. A fantastic effort. Watch our on young Jai.
6.45am: China's Lu Xiaojun won gold and broke two world records in the men's weightlifting 77-kilogram division at the Olympics. He beat his own world record total by one kilogram with an overall weight of 379 kg, including a world record snatch lift of 175 kg.
6.35am: Aussie Ibrahim Balla has been knocked out at the round of 16 stage in the men's bantam. He was defeated 14-10 by Bulgarian Detelin Dalakliev.
6.18am: Australia's team of Bronte Barratt, Melanie Schlanger, Kylie Palmer and Alicia Coutts have produced a top swim but not enough to defend their Olympic title from Beijing. Coutts was given a 0.54 lead going into the final leg but Allison Schmitt, who streaked the field in the 200m final on Day Four, storms home to give the USA yet another gold by 1.49 seconds. France with the bronze. Coutts (2 silvers, 1 gold, 1 bronze) and Schmitt (2 golds, 1 silver, 1 bronze) are the first two athletes to reach four individual medals in London.
6.08am: Anyways, we try to move on for now. Australia is swimming for gold. This time in the 4x200m freestyle relay. United States will be the ones to beat, especially with 200m Olympic champion Allison Schmitt bringing it home.
6.00am: Full credit to Nathan Adrian. He came sixth to Magnussen at last year's world championships in Shanghai. He was flying in the opening leg of the 4x100m freestyle relay when he did a 47.89 to give the USA the lead. Form is so crucial at massive meets like this and the 23-year-old has proven that.
"It's pretty amazing seeing a one next to your name. I almost started crying in the water. This is something that happens every four years. It's not who swims the fastest time this year but who can get their hands on the wall first here tonight."
5.54am: Aussie Daniel Tranter finishes eighth in second semi-final of the 200m IM in 2:00.46, a tad slower than his heat swim earlier today. Ryan Lochte qualifies fastest in 1:56.13 ahead of rivals Laszlo Cseh and Michael Phelps.
5.52am: Australia has absolutely smashed Great Britain 16-3. That's two wins from two games for the Stingers. Sadly, punishing the Old Enemy is not taking the pain away right now. Rowie Webster scored five goals. The Aussies take on Russia next.
5:40am: So much disappointment around Australia, but the Olympics waits for no one. Neither does American Rebecca Soni. She has just broken the world record in the semi-finals of the 200m breaststroke with a time of 2:20.00. Aussie Sally Foster comes fourth in the first semi and qualifies eighth for the final. Fantastic effort.
5.26am: James Magnussen finishes just 0.01 behind American Nathan Adrian. Gutting. The Aussie looked like he had it won with his trademark fast finish. But the American, in the lane beside him, beat him at the wall with a time of 47.52. Canadian Brent Hayden took out the bronze 0.28 further back. There was literally a fingernail in it. Australia's wait for a will be 48 years by the time we get to Rio. In saying that, Adrian is the first American to win the event in 24 years since Matt Biondi in Seoul 88. Meanwhile, The 21-year-old Magnussen is putting on a very brave face, but he must be devastated.
"That hurts," a shattered Magnussen told Channel Nine.
"I've struggled a little bit but learnt a lot.
"I've got no regrets, I've done everything I possibly could.
"I didn't swim as fast today as I did in the trials, but I did my best.
"Thanks to all the guys back home that supprted me, I've had so many messages of support in the last couple of days... it means a lot to me."
5.00am: Australia teenager Mitch Larkin qualifies for the final of the men's 200m backstroke after finishing fourth in his semi-final. Larkin clocked 1:56.82 to be the seventh-fastest qualifier, with America's Tyler Clary qualifying fastest in 1:54.71 ahead of Ryan Lochte.
"Really happy with that tonight. I was just looking forward to building on my swims from trials, hopefully fast in the heat, fast in the semi and it was good enough to get in the finals. Couldn’t be happier.," Larkin said.
4.44am: Australian Melanie Schlanger clocks a time of 53.38 to win the first semi-final of the women's 100m freestyle final. A very tidy swim by the 25-year-old whose form is really peaking at the right time. She is in with a big chance for a medal tomorrow. Now she has to go away and focus on that 4x200m relay final in a bit under 90 minutes. Dutch gun Ranomi Kromowidjojo then jumps in and sets an Olympic record time of 53.05 to qualify fastest. She will be very tough to knock off.
4.37am: Hungarian Daniel Gyurta has broken the world record (held by Aussie Christian Sprenger) in the 200m breaststroke final in a time of 2:07.28. The world champion went out hard and held off a fast finish from Britain's Michael Jamieson. Japan's Ryo Tateishi takes bronze while Kosuke Kitajima has missed his final chance to become the first male swimmer to win the same event at three consecutive Olympic Games. That honour may yet go to Michael Phelps. Aussie Brenton Rickard was seventh.
4.23am: Australia has been waiting for this event for five days. Actually, maybe more like 5 months. James Magnussen in the 100m freestyle final. Australia has not won the event since Michael Wenden at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics. Eamon Sullivan took silver in Beijing behind Alain Bernard and Ian Thorpe won bronze in Athens behind the great Peter van den Hoogenband. Magnussen qualified fastest and if it wasn't for his poor swim in the 4x100m freestyle relay, he would be raging hot favourite. As it is, the Missile is in the gun. Let's hope as Australia is settling down with its Weet-Bix, Magnussen eats pressure for breakfast. Our other medal hope is in the 4x200m freestyle relay. We won the event in 2008 and yet again face still opposition from the US to defend the title.
4.10am: Aussie Joshua Jefferis has finished in 19th in the men's all-around competition with a score of 86.865, an improvement from his qualification round. Japan's Kohei Uchimura took out the gold medal, after winning silver in Beijing, with a sensational score of 92.690. Marcel Nguyen finished second with American Danell Leyva.
3.56am: Grandstand's informs us that Alicia Coutts has been drafted into the Aussie team as anchor for the 4x200m freestyle final. She joins Bronte Barratt, Melanie Schlanger and Kylie Palmer. No room for Stepanie Rice, who was part of the gold medal team in Beijing, or Brittany Elmslie, who was the fastest leg in the heats.
3.53am: That's point, set and match to the Canadians 21-9, 18-21, 21-18. A very tense deciding set, but a few too many errors by the Aussies Renuga Veeran and Leane Choo cost them a shot at a medal. Regardless, it is a good effort after a topsy-turvy few days. The Aussies can go back to partying now without any disruptions from coach Bundgaard.
3.32am: Veeran and Choo have levelled the match at one set apiece. The Canadians won the first set 21-9 but the Aussies, who thought their Olympics was over days ago, fought back to take the second 21-18. Strap yourself in. A spot in the semis is up for grabs.
3.20am: If you are feeling a little bleary-eyed this morning, spare a thought for British weightlifter Jack Oliver, who slept in and was in danger of missing the start of his event - the men's 77kg competition. Luckily Oliver, who like some other 21-year-old's likes to sleep around 14 hours a day, got himself together to set a new British record and two personal bests.
"I was meant to be up at six o'clock, go downstairs and have a nice pre-weigh-in shower and a bit of a stretch," Oliver said.
"At five past seven I hear a banging on the door, looked at my phone and thought 'I'm in trouble! I'm going to have a very angry coach!'"
"The extra hour of sleep must have done me good," he said
2.55am: Women's doubles team Veeran and Choo are now on the badminton court against Canadian pair Bruce and Li. Those two will definitely put up a good fight...
2.42am: Aussie gymnast Joshua Jefferis is competing in the men's all-around final. He has completed his rotations on the vault, parallel bars and horizontal bars for scores of 15.433, 14.900 and 14.133 respectively.
2.30am: The Aussie badminton team of Renuga Veeran and Leanne Choo are preparing for their shock quarter-final clash after the fallout from the 'shuttlecrock' controversy extended their Games bid. The appeal from the Korean teams has been dismissed by the Badminton World Federation. Indonesia withdrew and China chose not to appeal the disqulification. Aussie coach Lasse Bundgaard says the right decision was made:
"I think everyone wants fair play and everybody wants to see people try and win matches," Bundgaard said.
"That is what we are here for and I think that would never happen with Australian athletes. They will always go for the wins.
"It is good to know that your international federation supports fair play and that is great statement to have. Yesterday was not a good day for badminton, but today I think is a very good day."
2.10am: Morning all. Or evening. I'm not even sure anymore. here to take you through the rest of Day Five. We'll try to keep you abreast of all the action around London, with the focus again being on the pool where James Magnussen eyes gold.
1.25am: It's been a great day for Australia's Taylor Worth at the archery. He has just beaten American Brady Ellison by seven set points to one for his second victory of the day, which puts him into the quarter-finals. He will face Chinese archer Xiaoxiang Dai on Friday at 7.18pm AEST.
1.18am: Just to add to Wiggins' reputation, the win was his fourth Olympic gold medal and his seventh overall medal, taking him past legendary British Olympic rower Steve Redgrave (six medals, including five gold at five Olympics).
1.13am: Well that was a little more tense than was strictly necessary, as the Opals let their lead slip to give the Brazilian team a chance for another upset win. In the end, Australia steadied to win by six, 67-61.
1.10am: Australia's Michael Rogers officially finished sixth more than two seconds clear of defending champion, Switzerland's Fabian Cancellara.

12.58am: Novak Djokovic has beaten Lleyton Hewitt in three sets, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1. It was a typically brave effort by Hewitt, who looked a chance of a huge upset after taking the opening set. But the longer the game went on, the more the Serb champion started to get on top. Djokovic is through to the quarter-finals, while Lleyton will team up with Samantha Stosur in the mixed doubles later on.
12.56am: According to Grandstand's Peter Walsh, the Opals' Lauren Jackson has just become the leading scorer in women's international basketball history. Take a bow Lauren, what a career. Jackson has 12 points so far for the night. Australia leads 57-45 midway through the final quarter.
12.52am: Michael Rogers has crossed the line in the men's time trial in 52 minutes 51.39 seconds, but his time has just been obliterated by Britain's Chris Froome, who registered a time of 51:47.87.

12.29am: Novak Djokovic has resumed normal service, taking the second set against Lleyton Hewitt 7-5.
12.27am: Luis Leon Sanchez must have walked past a black cat under a ladder on Friday the 13th. After snapping his chain and hurting his knee within metres of the start in the time-trial, the Spanish cyclist has now lost further time after a puncture. He is still pedalling, to his credit.
12.24am: An amazing result at the archery, where Australia's Taylor Worth has been forced to a shoot-off after tieing his match against Britain's Alan Wills at Lord's. The two archers won two sets each out of five with one set drawn, leaving the pair to fire off a single arrow at the target, with the nearest to the bull taking the victory. Worth held his nerve under pressure, hitting the bullseye, and Wills could not match the result, putting the Australian through to the round of 16.
12.14am: The Opals have had a much better start to their second game of the tournament against Brazil. The women's basketball team lead by 31-18 at half-time. Liz Cambage and Lauren Jackson have seven points each at the main break.
12.09am: Some months you don't want to get out of bed. Spanish cyclist Luis Leon Sanchez must have that feeling right now. The rider crashed heavily at the Tour de France but kept going. Now his Olympic time-trial may be cruelled before it began. Sanchez rolled off the ramp to start the race and immediately the chain broke on his space-age bike, forcing him to drag to an immediate stop. The Spaniard hurt his knee and lost 30 vital seconds while waiting for a replacement bike. He pedalled off to a huge cheer from the crowd, but his medal chances are just about zero.

More as we hear it.

9.19pm: Australia has finished out of the medals in the women's quad scull final, finishing fourth behind the dominant Ukraine crew, Germany and the United States.

9.13pm: Disappointment at the judo where Australia's Mark Anthony has lost to Cuba's Ashley Gonzalez, after being penalised two points for non-combativity.
9.04pm: That's a great effort by the Aussies. Sarah Tait recovered from an arm ligament injury less than two months out from the Games, to partner Kate Hornsey to a finals spot. The British pair led virtually from start to finish, but Australia came with a rush in the final 500-600 metres to overtake the United States and New Zealand to clinch the silver medal.

6.59pm: Another goal at the hockey! Australia won a penalty corner, the ball came in and captain Eddie Ockenden took a shot which deflected off a Spanish stick and into the net. It's 5-0! There was another attack at the end, but the Kookaburras could not add to their score. That's a big win against the fifth-ranked team in the world.
The Australians are definitely on track for a shot at the medals. .
6.56pm: Australia's deputy chef de mission Kitty Chiller has confirmed that Australia has lodged a protest against the alleged tanking at the badminton last night:
“Badminton section manager Lasse Bundgaard has lodged a protest. He didn’t do that in order for Australia to progress in any way shape or form.
He genuinely feels it was very important for the integrity of the sport to lodge that protest. He cares about the sport and if it is found that that has happened it’s certainly not something that we would encourage or condone.
It’s the integrity of the sport above all else, especially at the Olympic Games, is of absolute paramount importance. And the IOC disciplinary panel will determine whatever they feel has or hasn’t been done."
6.46pm: No more goals at the hockey, but it has been one-way traffic, with Australia peppering the Spanish goal without success. A rare break from Spain has given them a penalty corner, but the Australian defence defused the attack, and the score remains 4-0 with 10 minutes to go.
6.43pm We are less than 20 minutes away from the start of pool action for the morning session in London. The first event is the women's 100m freestyle, which will run without Australia's Cate Campbell. Melanie Schlanger will race in the seventh and final heat, against the Dutch star swimmer, Ranomi Kromiwidjojo.
6.32pm: Lleyton Hewitt will have a monumental task of upsetting Novak Djokovic in the men's tennis singles at 11pm (AEST), while Shara Gillow and Michael Rogers will represent Australia in the women's and men's cycling time-trial events. The women's race starts at 9.30pm (AEST), while the men's race gets underway at 11.15pm.
6.28pm: Play is underway at the Riverbank Arena for the second half, and the Kookaburras have already extended their lead to 4-0! A perfect lifted pass from Chris Ciriello went 40m to bounce right into the path of Glenn Turner who placed the ball into the corner of the net on the run. Fantastic goal!
6:17pm: Bad news at the swimming, with reports that Australia's Cate Campbell has withdrawn from the 100 metres freestyle event because of illness. She will not be replaced in the event, leaving Melanie Schlanger as Australia's only representative.
6.14pm: Underway right now at the shooting is the women's 25m pistol qualification with Lalita Yauhleuskaya and Hayley Chapman trying to qualify for the final. It's a family affair for South Australian shooter Chapman, whose father David is competing in the men's 25m rapid fire pistol event.
6.06pm: Australia is cruising at the hockey, after a great burst down the right wing led to a beautiful finish by Simon Orchard. Australia leading 3-0!
6.03pm: Elsewhere, it's crunch time tonight for the Opals as they take on Brazil (11:30pm AEST), after losing an intense opening match against France, which was highlighted by Belinda Snell's buzzer-beating three-point from insider her own half to take the game to overtime.
5.58pm: Spain's luck goes from bad to worse, with Pol Amat going off after apparently dislocating his shoulder in a nasty fall.
5.57pm: Kerry Hore, Dana Faletic, Pauline Frasca and Amy Clay will make their tilt for rowing gold in the women's quad scull final at 7:20pm (AEST), before Sarah Tait and Kate Hornsey feature in the women's pair final at 8:50pm.
5.55pm: We will be keeping an eye on the badminton tonight, as the Badminton World Federation is holding a hearing after charging four women's doubles pairs - two from Korea, one from China and one from Indonesia - with "not using one's best efforts to win a match" and "conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport". This all came about after chaotic scenes at the badminton last night, with the crowd jeering players for trying to lose their matches to obtain an easier draw in the competition. See more .
5.46pm: More drama at the hockey! Matthew Butturini scores another cracker for the Kookaburras, but the Spanish protest, calling for a video replay. Tempers fray, and one of the Spanish players pushes the referee, but no replay is forthcoming, and the goal stands. Australia off to a flier, the team leads 2-0.
5:43pm: The big story tonight will be the pressure on James Magnussen to deliver in the 100m freestyle final after clocking the fastest qualifying time for the blue riband event.
He might be the favourite in lane four, but the weight of expectation will be even heavier from a country that hasn't won the event since 1968.
5:39pm: Goal! The Aussies take the lead over Spain with a lovely dinked finish from Russell Ford. 1-0.
5:30pm: We're already underway on Day Five with The Kookaburras facing Spain in the men's hockey.
It will be a tougher ask for Jamie Dwyer and Edward Ockenden's side compared to their 6-0 thrashing of South Africa against the well organised Spaniards.
