    Judy's not wrong about the handball - what an brilliant finish to the 1st two quarter finals, especially the French v Spanish!
    They've even moved into the basketball arena because the "copperbox" wasn't big enough!

    I think that was always the plan for the latter stages - now the gymnastics is over, the basketball has moved up to the North Greenwich Arena (or the O2 to everyone else!), freeing up the Basketball Arena for handball.

    Watching wheelchair basketball at the moment - unfortunately it looks like GB are going to lose to Germany - but it's great fun to watch! The speed, skill and control of the players is extraordinary, and it's way more violent than I was expecting
