Matt misses out
Last updated at 11:41, Friday, 03 August 2012
Despite a valiant effort, Hexham's Matt Wells has missed out on a second Olympic medal.
The Beijing bronze medallist and his Great Britain quadruple scull could only finish fifth in the final.
They were lying third after 1,000m, but faded in the second half of the race.
Germany trook the gold, Croatia silver and Australia bronze.

HAVING raised over £1,000 through prize draws, dances, whist drives and donations, Bellingham was able to buy its town hall.
So successful was the fund-raising that when all the debts were cleared more than £100 was left in the fund.
The hall could now be used by the town for all manner of social and public functions.
