Golden Saturday, from 9:00am, BBC1
After two weeks of Olympic-level viewing you will be feeling the strain. You’re probably exhausted. You may be planning to wind down and coast gently to the closing ceremony. Well, I’m afraid it’s not over yet. In fact, viewer, your biggest challenge is still ahead of you.
Get ready for the most gruelling Olympic battle of the entire fortnight: yes, it’s the Armchair Triacontathlon - plus two.
You see, there are no fewer than 32 gold medals up for grabs on Saturday, and it may just be possible for the dedicated spectator to watch them all. To complete this challenge you will need the following: a telly; comfortable seating; a remote control with a red button (and extra batteries); drinking water and, for safety, elasticated flight socks. Do some stretching, settle down and let the games begin!
