Final day, final predictions

It is the last day of racing in the pool and we have another four finals to play out. With tired and weary bodies and minds, we will see who has managed the eight days of emotionally intense scrutiny the best.

Two ends of the individual event spectrum will be showcased today; whilst the women fight out the one length dash without breathing, the men will do battle over the longest event in the programme – hopefully pacing the 30 lengths to perfection.

Here are our final medal predictions for the Rio 2016 Games…
