MO FARAH is 5-4 with Coral to add gold in the 5000m to his success in the 10,000m after a night of triumph in the Olympic Stadium saw Team GB win three titles.

Golden girl Jessica Ennis was the big winner on the night as she wrapped up glory in style with success in the 800m.

Greg Rutherford was a surprise winner of the men’s long jump, adding to the three gold medals won earlier on the water and on the track in rowing and cycling.

Coral spokesman Gary Burton said: “It was the best day of success ever for the British team and although our profits took a pounding tonight we are more than happy to pay out with a smile.”

Ennis, Farah and Rutherford were all slashed by Coral to win the BBC Sports Personality Award but Paddy Power have already paid put on Bradley Wiggins. Ennis is 5-2 (from 10-1), Farah 6-1 (from 12-1) and Rutherford 66-1 (from 150-1).

Coral also quote Jessica Ennis at 1-1 to be made a Dame in the New Year’s Honours list.

Meanwhile, Usain Bolt is the 8-11 favourite with Coral to retain his Olympic 100m title but it’s countryman Yohan Blake who has impressed the bookie so far, being cut from to 13-8 to win after yesterday's heats.

The fast track has also seen punters rushing to bet world records and fast times with the current world record of 9.58secs cut to 7-4 to be broken and and a sub-9.50 backed into 5-2.

Andy Murray is 5-4 at Ladbrokes to overcome Swiss powerhouse Roger Federer (8-13) in Sunday's gold medal match. It's 11-2 the match is a nailbiter and Murray wins 3-2.

Novak Djokovic is odd son (3-10) to pick up the bronze medal as he did in Beijing 2008 by beating Juan Martin Del Potro (5-2).

    Fantastic days sport yesterday Paul…proud to be from this Great country of ours!!… I was fancying Blake for the 100m, what do you think?

      Guy, it should be a two-horse between Bolt and Blake so Blake is worth a look if you can about 7-4. I tipped him on the anteposts when I did my Olympic preview and Blake looked better in the heats.
