With a rest day in the athletics arena, the Olympics' first badminton finals can make a bold debut. Darren Hall, the 1991 European singles champion, and Fiona Smith, the Commonwealth champion, back after having a baby, have medal prospects for Britain, but the golds will almost certainly go to China. Zhao Jianhua and Tang Jiuhong defend the men's and women's titles.

Britain, fourth in the women's hockey at Seoul, will be looking to today's semi-finals, in which champions Australia remain the team to beat.
