It was a remarkable Olympics for Team GB as they collected 27 golds, 23 silvers and 17 bronze medals, with a tally of 67 medals in total making Rio their most successful games since 1908 in London and their best away Games in history.
Here's how a golden fortnight breaks down...

A clear winner here as the cycling team at the velodrome absolutely pummelled their rivals on the track. They claimed 11 medals, including six golds, with their nearest rivals, Netherlands, collecting just two. Every single member of the team got a medal of one colour or another.
Chris Froome also chipped in with a bronze in the men's road time trial. UK Sport had targeted at least eight medals from cycling and a likely maximum of 10 - so the cyclists' achievements surpassed even the most ambitious expectations.
In fact, rowing and modern pentathlon were the only sports in which Team GB failed to hit the target set by UK Sport - an amazing achievement.
