9.35: Folkard's response She scores 28 which is more than good enough to defeat the Russian in that set who scores a poor 22. It's now 4-4.

9.33: Not much Folkard could have done about that. Timofeeva hits a perfect 30 with her three arrows to move 4-2 ahead.

9.31: It's the first to six set points in the individual events – with two points handed for winning a set.

Right now it's 2-2 as we go into the third set, Folkard hitting back after a sloppy start.

9.26: Here is Folkard then who looked handy in the team event but couldn't prevent Britain crashing out to Russia, let's hope she can extract some revenge.

9.21: From Infostrada2012:

Equestrian: New Zealand's Mark Todd can equal Gerevich (Hungary, fencing 1932-1960), Holm (Ssweden, sailing 1920-1948) in winning medal 28 years after first medal.

9.16: The archery is up and running at Lord's, with Naomi Folkard of Britain set to take on Russia's Kristina Timofeeva in around 10 minutes' time.

The wind and rain there is going to make for some challenging conditions.

9.11: From Sportsmail's Laura Williamson at the ExCeL:

Chelsea's Petr Cech is here at the judo. He's just had a little chat with the PA announcer before taking his seat in the 2nd row.

9.06: It's half-time in the hockey where Holland now lead 2-0 after Ellen Hoog doubled the Dutch's advantage.

The Badminton is also underway with Rajiv Ouseph and Susan Egelstaff in singles action later on for Britain, while Imogen Bankier and Chris Adock will aim to sign off their doubles schedule with a win after losing their first two matches – thus going out of the tournament.

9.01: Luckily the rain won't affect our top Brits with Centre Court featuring Andy Murray second when he takes on Jarkko Nieminen, while Laura Robson faces a huge match last when she takes on Maria Sharapova.

Heather Watson is second on Court One, so will get out there at some point when she takes on Mara Kirinlenko.

8.58: The tennis at Wimbledon will continue today but with rain set to play a major role, by the looks of things we could only be reduced to action on Centre Court.

8.53: Before we get heavily involved with today's schedule, don't forget you can keep up-to-date with all the sports and live medals as they are won by following their respective links in the green box to the right.

8.48: From Infostrada 2012:

France (3 gold) has most golds of all 9 European NOCs to win gold medal in London. Great Britain and Germany are still without a gold.

8.43: Another success for Britain last night was in the hockey where Britain's men recorded a 4-1 victory over the old foe Argentina. There was clearly no love lost either in the fiery encounter.

8.38: No beautiful morning sunshine in the hockey but we do have a goal courtesy of Kim Lammers for Holland in their match against Japan.

8.33: So no golds, but a first medal (bronze) in 100 years for the men's team of gymnasts yesterday certainly felt like one.

Even though it was down graded from silver after a slightly controversial appeal from the Japanese over their negative scoring on their last routine, it's still a massive result for Louis Smith and his team, and one that shouldn't be taken lightly.

They were not even inside the world top 20 nine years ago.

8.28: Like yesterday it's the 10m Synchronised Diving final at 3pm, with the British pairing of Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow looking to gain a medal.

The European champions are due to dive fifth in a field of eight, with the Chinese (who else) firm favourites for gold.

8.23: Big highlight this morning is the Equestrian Team Event where Team GB will go for their first gold in 40 years.

They currently hold silver going into the final day where jumping concludes the event.

The team of Mary King, Tina Cook, Zara Phillips, Nicola Wilson and William Fox-Pitt have looked very strong on home turf.

8.18: One big warning to you folks if you are planning to travel to the Olympic Park is the Central Line on the London tube network is currently part suspended due to a fire alert.

In my experience these can take quite a while to deal with so you might want to rearrange how you reach the park this morning.

8.15: There is 15 more medal events today, with a big hope for Britain being David Florence in the Canoe Slalom at the Lea Valley White Water Centre this afternoon.

He took silver in the event at Beijing and now lives right next to the site that is on the very edge of Waltham Abbey.

8.10: One disappointment yesterday was the failure of Tom Daley and Peter Waterfield to deliver a medal in the diving.

They were up against some strong opponents in the final though, with their efforts in finishing fourth still a proud one.

But as you know, Daley was verbally abused on Twitter following the event, and the latest this morning is a 17-year-old man has been arrested in Weymouth.

8.05: I'm sure you're getting used to the format now. The action will get underway at 8.30 with the badminton and hockey – but there is no glorious sunshine to accompany the latter. Gloomy rain clouds hover over London today.

8.00: So day four and the fact that there is still no gold medals for the hosts suggest all is not going to plan for Team GB.

But there is simply no need to panic yet. There has only been one event where we were expected to take the top prize and we have had some fantastic results already.

Today we may draw another blank in the gold aspect – but hopefully the medals in general will continue to trickle in.
