    HOCKEY (20:00-21:20): Team GB v Argentina, women's semi-final

    Great Britain's women are through to the Olympic semi-finals for the first time since 1996, but they face a tough task against Argentina. 'Las Leonas' are ranked number two in the world and on a mission to finally win Olympic gold for hockey superstar Luciana Aymar. Argentina beat Britain 1-0 in the Champions Trophy final in Rosario earlier this year, so expect this one to be tight.

    The GB team have been beaten 2-1 by Argentina. They had plenty of chances, but just couldn't score until five minutes from the end and there just wasn't enough time for them to get back in the match after that. So, the gold is gone, but there's still a chance to win bronze when they play New Zealand later in the week.

    HOCKEY (19:50-22:10): Great Britain v Netherlands, men's semi-final

    Great Britain's men will attempt to go one step further than their female counterparts by reaching the hockey final. Doing so would guarantee them at least a silver medal, but they will need to beat Netherlands to do it, who have won all of their matches so far at the Games. Australia meet Germany (15:30) in the other semi-final.

    It's not going well in the hockey:

    That was 20 minutes ago. It's 9-2 now.

    Genius!
