The key events for tomorrow, via our daily briefing.
All events are listed here in local Tokyo time. Add an hour for Sydney, subtract eight hours for Bristol, 13 hours for New York and 16 hours for San Francisco.
Athletics (7.35pm-9.50pm) Theres only one session in the stadium on Saturday and it is final after final. We get the womens high jump and the mens javelin. The womens 10,000m final is at 7.45pm. The mens 1500m final is 8.40pm. Then we finish the track events in the stadium with the explosive double whammy of the womens and mens 4x400m relay finals.
Womens marathon (6am) Held in Sapporo to try and avoid the Tokyo heat, the women will start at around 10pm UK time so you can settle in with your Ovaltine for a late night watching someone else run 26.2 miles to gold.
Golf (6.30am) It should be the fourth and final round of the womens golf weather permitting.
Canoe sprint (9.30am-12.47pm)There are four finals on Saturday, in the womens canoe double 500m, mens canoe single 1000m, and the kayak four 500m in both flavours.
