Good night!

22:30 A total of 32 gold medals to come tomorrow, including a mammoth 12 in canoe sprint. It is also the first day of diving action and the last day in badminton and road cycling, while there is much more to come in athletics and wrestling.

Catch you as ever, at 09:00 tomorrow morning! And what timing, I am leaving you at literally the moment South Korea are awarded gold, in of the longest medals ceremonies I've ever seen. So on that note, it is good night!

22:28 Another great day for China, daylight for South Korea in second place, and a brilliant evening on the track for Qatar, A first couple of medals also, including a gold, for Saudi Arabia, while Thailand, Taiwan and Indonesia were other nations to excel today.

22:27 Right, as the gold medals are awarded we are going to shut things down after another great day today. Records in athletics, history in wrestling, drama on the greens, brilliance in the badminton, and plenty more in cycling, archery, bowling, beach volleyball and sepak takraw. It's definitely been one of the best days of the Games. 

22:24 Her success slightly makes up for the envious feelings the Japanese baseball team must be experiencing when they look to their right, and see South Korea on the top step of the podium. 

Japanese flag22:18 We promised we reflect more on her earlier. Saori Yoshida of Japan was one of the stars of day nine. And she is quite simply the most dominant athlete in Olympic sport. There, I've said it. Asian Games titles in 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014, no one has done four before. She won Olympic golds in Athens, Beijing and London and has won 12 World Championships titles, in every single year since 2003, except for 2004, when no Championships were held! Since her debut in 2002, she has won practically every world- and international-level tournament she has entered. In September 2006, she surpassed a 100-match winning streak.

Given this context, it's not surprising she won again today.

21:14 Right once this medal ceremony concludes I am going to have to get off sharpish, so I am going to start wrapping things up on the blog after another compelling day. 

Gold for South Korea in baseball!

21:07 Most of the fans and press corps have left their seat. But not to leave the stadium, only to get as far forward as possible to watch, and photograph, the medals ceremony which is imminent here. A couple of good moments I didn't get around to mentioning earlier. Firstly, a massive mishit into the top tier of the stand was wonderfully caught, in a baseball club, by a boy who couldn't have been older than nine or 10. It was as if he had been waiting for that moment all match. 

And secondly, and arguably more importantly, they suddenly started handing out free pizza to the media! That is a good enough reason to put the sport back in the Olympics for me!

On a serious note, I am very impressed with the organisation tonight as well. I was told three times when collecting my ticket earlier that I would not have a table seat, "and you have been told now so don't ask when you get there", they added. I get there, and lo and behold, they've only gone and given me a tabled seat, with an internet cable as well. It doesn't get any better than that for us journos - internet and free pizza. It's a good thing too, because the WiFi was unusable on my phone...

21:02 Well...I'm exhausted, other journalists are exhausted, the players must be exhausted and the home fans must be close to losing their voices and exhausted. But South Korea held their nerve to win an absorbing baseball final. It wasn't all big hits and home runs. In fact, there weren''t any at all, but this was sport in its most absorbing and gripping form.

Incheon 2014 gold medal21:55 There it is. A frantic scramble and this final is all over. The Taiwanese innings is over. No runs have been scored and the South Korean squad charge onto the pitch. The host nation have won the gold medal everybody wanted. 

21:53 A mishit shot, a frantic run to first base. This is going to be out! Oh, a fumble by the first baseman. But it's still incomplete and the Taiwanese hitter is ruled not to have reached it in time. The crowd go wild and South Korea are on the brink here!

21:48 Straight back to the baseball for the closing stages. Taiwan have to get runs in this ninth innings...And a big shot, a big shot, the closest we've come to a home run tonight. That's exactly what they need right now. But, alas, it falls short and is caught. That's one out. 

China and Japan win in wrestling and bowling

Incheon 2014 gold medal21:46 Zhou Feng of China wins the final wrestling gold of the evening, in the women's under 75kg division. A 4-0 win in the final over Guzel Manyurova of Kazakhstan. Hwang Eunju of South Korea takes silver and bronze goes to Burmaa Ochirbat of Mongolia. 

Incheon 2014 gold medal21:42 One result to tidy up from earlier. The trios in men's bowling seemed to go on for hours and hours before finishing a little while ago. Tomoyuki Sasaki, Shogo Wada, and Shusaku Asato from Japan eventually seized gold with a total of 3881 pinfalls over at the Anyang HoGye Gymnasium.

Ridhwan Syafiq, Zulmazran Zulkifli and Tan Chye Chern of Malaysia pick up silver, while Choi Bokeum, Park Jongwoo and Kim Kyungmin of South Korea take bronze. 

21:36 Back in the baseball. There's a triumphant air to proceedings now, as the South Korean crowd feel the gold is coming. Taiwan dry a desperate "bunk" shot there. Dropping the ball at his feet and sprinting with all he had towards first base. I used to try that tactic in softball in school PE lessons... It didn't work then and it doesn't work here, he's out before reaching first base and its a scoreless innings from the Taiwanese. South Korea still lead 6-3 heading into the ninth.  

Three gold for China, two for Qatar and one for Saudi Arabia on day two of athletics

21:32 It was raining as well in the athletics. What a few days Qatar have had in shooting and now track and field. Five gold medals in four days...

Incheon 2014 gold medal21:26 Final result of the night in the athletics. China's Xue Changrui has won gold in the men's pole vault, clearing 5.55m. Japan's Daichi Sawano won silver, and Jin Min-sub of South Korea picked up bronze. Sawano also cleared 5.55 but had more failures earlier in the competition so missed out on count-back. 

South Korea take the lead in baseball!

South Korean flag21:19 They're still hitting as well, and here we go, a firm bat straight down ground - gosh, sorry, I nearly called it a cover drive then - and the stadium explodes once again as two more runs are scored! South Korea have been patient, so patient, but they have made the breakthrough here in the seventh and are now firmly on course for gold!

Magnificent sporting drama, and I suddenly realised I shouted "c'mon" and punched the air in delight when that happened. I'm as hooked as everyone...!

South Korean flag21:16 Back in the baseball, and no one in South Korea cares about a 9.93 100m. Because they've just got a run. Two runs in fact! jubilation in the Munhak Stadium after an unbelievably tense few minutes. The breakthrough comes on after four balls, so an automatic walk through... 

Ogunode clocks 9.93 to win 100 metres!

21:12 What a sensational run by the Qatari! He goes joint fifth on the 2014 world lists behind Justin Gatlin, Richard Thompson, Mike Rodgers and Asafa Powell. And equal with Tyson Gay.

Incheon 2014 gold medal21:06 Qatar's Femi Seun Ogunode has won the men's 9.93 seconds. That is rapid! It is an Asian and Asian Games record, breaking the one held by fellow Nigerian-born compatriot Samuel Francis. China's Su Bingtian took silver in 10.10 and Kei Takase of Japan the bronze in 10.15. 

Francis was a distant eighth and last. 

21:02 Straight on to the men's final, but a key moment in the baseball at the same time. Taiwan fail to score after two player are caught out. South Korea come out to bat, and you just feel this is the moment. And they promptly reach first base! Min Byung Hun with the successful hit. 

Wei wins 100m gold for China!

Incheon 2014 gold medal20:58 A brilliant race, won by Wei Yongli of China with a time of 11.48s. Japan's Chisato Fukushima won silver, just one hundredth of a second behind, and Olga Safronova of Kazakhstan the bronze.

20:55 We will return to Yoshida in a moment, but here is the women's 100m final...

Yoshida becomes first wrestler to win four consecutive Asian Games titles

Incheon 2014 gold medal20:52 Saori Yoshida of Japan has made history by winning the under 55kg freestyle event. She becomes the first wrestler ever to win gold in four consecutive Asian Games, defeating Byambatseren Sundev of Mongolia 12-1 with a technical pinfall in the final. Aisuluu Tynybekova  of Kyrgyzstan and Zhong Xuechun of China take the two bronze medals. 

20:47 A big wrestling result to bring you in a moment. But the athletes are out for the women's 100m final... Meanwhile, here in the baseball, the crowd are cheering wildly everytime Taiwan miss the ball. But they need than that, South Korea need runs now. The tension is growing, with Taiwan still 3-2 ahead in the seventh innings. 
Chinese flag20;40 In the athletics we are counting down towards the two 100m finals. They both start in not very long at all. The women's 200m component of the heptathlon has just finished, the fourth discipline of the day following the 100m hurdles, high jump and shot put. And we have a Chinese leader at the halfway point - and please don't say we're over halfway, you know what I mean - Wang Qingling is on 3,579 points.

It's a Uzbek 2-3 behind her. Ekaterina Avoronina and Yuliya Tarasova are 184 and 241 points behind respectively. The long jump, javelin and 800m to come tomorrow.

Incheon 2014 gold medal20:33 Second gold medal of the night in wrestling and Reza Yazdani of Iran has won a third consecutive Asian Games title. He wins the men's 97kg competition by defeating Fozil Musaev of Kyrgyzstan 14-4 in the final. Mameb Ibragimov of Kazakhstan and Khuderbulga Dorjkhand of Mongolia earlier each win their bronze medal clashes.

Taiwan edge ahead in baseball

Taiwan flag20:24 Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear. The atmosphere has quietened because Taiwan have just taken two runs in the seventh innings of the baseball. This is my naivety of the sport coming out, but I am a little surprised there have been no home runs tonight, it's a much more tactical affair than a Hollywood film or a YouTube "best hits" video would suggest...

Pharrell Williams "Happy" has come on again in the break. They won't be happy in the streets of Incheon tonight if the score stays the same. Maybe Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'" would be more appropriate? As so often in sport, contests can change in the blink of an eye. South Korea hammered these opponents a couple of days ago, but cannot do it tonight.

What an effort by Taiwan, as well. Missing some of their key players, but after beating Japan in the semi-final, are they going to go one step better?

Indonesia take second badminton gold of the Games

Incheon 2014 gold medal20:17 Heartbreak for the South Koreans in the badminton as Mohammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan of Indonesia win the doubles after overcoming Yoo Yeonseong and Lee Yongdae, the local favourites, 21-16, 16-21, 21-17. A 63 minute encounter, that one. 

Pairs from South Korea and Malaysia took bronze. 

First Saudi Arabian gold

20:12 An interesting fact about Masrahi before we move on. In 2008 he switched from the 800m to the 400m on the advice of the head of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee, Prince Nawaf bin Faisal. "Prince Nawaf told me that he saw me as a champion in the 400m and that I was to only concentrate on that event. His strong advice has brought many good things to me." 

Well...I wonder if Prince Nawak has any more advice, because that one worked. He's also the sixth fastest man in the world this year...

Saudi Arabian flag20:08 A sensational performance by the Saudi, who was always the star man in this field. He was a gold medal winner four years ago in Guangzhou, but has gone from strength to strength since then, placing sixth in the 2013 World Championship Final in Moscow before clocking a time of 44.43 on the Diamond League circuit in Lausanne earlier this season. And before you ask, he was born in Saudi Arabia, in Najran close to the south-western border with Yemen. 

Incheon 2014 gold medal20:05 Saudi Arabia's Yousef Masrahi has won gold in the men's 400m, and, what a time! He stops the clock at 44.46. That is world class, and an Asian Games record to boot. Abbas Abubakar Abbas of Bahrain won the silver, and Arokia Rajiv of India bronze.

Quote marks"The match was difficult. In the beginning, it was very difficult but we can't decide that from the beginning, so we tried to break the freezing of the match. We attacked Saudi Arabia, and in addition to the first and second goals, we wanted to put the difference between us. We tried not to let them defend themselves or attack us. But Saudi Arabia also tried to defend themselves a lot and defended our goals too much. It was very difficult but our eyes and our ambition are toward the goal. It is difficult for us now because the next match is not going to be easy either. One of the strongest obstacles is the South Korean team. We are now considering it now, we are counting on South Korean team. We are having the next round with the North Korean team, and North Korean team is also a very good team. But we have ambitions, we have the spirit to reach for more and more."
- Iraq's coach Hakeem Al Azzawi after defeating Saudi Arabia 3-0 in the quarterfinals. South Korea, as you can see from his comments, also made it through after holding on to beat Japan. Thailand are their opponents in the last four. 

20:01 The 21-year-old Bahraini was born in Nigeria - are you surprise? - but switched allegiance and is actually best known as a 400m hurdles specialist. Her time won't set the world on fire in the global but a great victory tonight as she controlled the race throughout.

Next up is the men's race. 

Incheon 2014 gold medal19:59 - First track final of the night in athletics now, the women's 400m. And, fresh from their belated steeplechase victory, there is more good news for Bahrain. Oluwakemi Adekoya has taken gold with a time of 51.59 seconds. Vietnam's Thi lan Quach took silver by recording 52.06 seconds while India's Poovamma Machettira, who clocked 52.36, won bronze.

South Korean flag19:55 A big moment in the baseball as Min Byung Hun and Hwang Jae Gyun both scamper round to set up two runs for South Korea. They've taken a 2-1 lead. It's great to see a final that is so close here, particularly after the Koreans demolished these opponents earlier in the competition. 

Second night of athletics action

Incheon 2014 gold medal19:45 Sticking with athletics and there's been a one, two for China in the women's hammer throw.

Wenxiu Zhang is the one to take gold as she throws a Games record distance of 77.33m. Behind here is team mate Zheng Wang who measures a distance of 74.16m. The Chinese duo are the only two to clear 70 metres with India's Bala Manju the next best athletes with 60.47m.

19:40 Here's something we weren't sure we would see last night. Ruth Jebet collecting her gold medal from the 3,000m women's steeplechase. The 17-year-old would have been cautious as she stepped on the medal podium after having it taken away from here moments before on the last time of trying...

Incheon 2014 gold medal19:32 We've got a first gold of the night  in wrestling as Yogeshwar Dutt of India defeats Zalimkhan Yusupov of Tajikistan in the men's 65kg contest.

Just a single point separated the two wrestlers in this one as Dutt sealed a single point in the first period with no reply.

Bronze medals were won by China's Katai Yeerlanbieke and Ikhtiyor Navruzov of Uzbekistan.

19:25 It's turned rather noisy at the badminton now as South Korea begin their men's doubles encounter with Indonesia on centre court.

Top seeds Yoo Yeonseong and Lee Yongdae are the local favourites as they take on Mohammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan. It's not just the home fans making all the noise here, though, with plenty of Indonesians making their voices heard inside the venue.

These Indonesian cheers appear to be doing the trick as the duo take an early one game lead following a brilliant opening game here.

North Koreans missing home, and their leader...

19:16 Here's an extract from an interesting article on a North Korean "Longing the Leader" gathering that took place last night as athletes from "Up North" began feeling homesick...

"North Korea's athletes at the Asian Games, reportedly feeling homesick while competing in South Korea, have held a special "longing for the leader" gathering to express how much they miss their homeland.

"The gathering Saturday featured songs and poems praising leader Kim Jong Un, according to the North's Korean Central News Agency.

"The report said that at the gathering, called an 'Evening longing for respected Marshal Kim Jong Un Kim,' Sports Minister Kim Yong Hun said that while they have only been away from the leader for about a week, 'the minds of all members of the delegation and players are running to him, whom they long to see, awake or asleep.'

"Among the musical selections they sang were 'We Cannot Live Without You' and 'Warm Feelings,' which KCNA said reflects 'the single-minded unity' of all North Koreans who share "the unbreakable blood ties" to Kim.

"It added that a poem offered to Kim by one of the athletes left everyone 'mesmerized.'"

Qatar flag19:08 Good news on what has already been a golden day for Qatar as athletics action begin. Femi Seun Ogunode runs a PB of 10:02 to lead the qualifiers for the final later. His fellow Nigerian-born Qatar, Asian record holder Samuel Francis will join him there, albeit less impressively, after coming third in the first semi-final. That one was won by Ryota Yamagata of Japan in 10.17.

Badminton and baseball live action

Accreditation photo of Paul Osborne"And there it is. A backhand smash down the line gives Chen Long a 2-0 victory in just 35 short minutes here. Wei was more aggressive in this second set but could not find a way past the sturdy defence of Chen. 21-6, 21-10 was the final score resulting in an all-China affair come the final." - Reporter Paul Osborne at the badminton, as Chen Long moves through to face Lin Dan in the final. World v Olympic champion.

 Not being a Korean speaker, I obviously don't understand many of the chants going around the Munhak Baseball Stadium, although I feel the players names are featuring heavily...

But I do recognise some of the tunes! First there is something that sounds exactly like the American Gospel Hymn turned football anthem, "When the Saints Go Marching In" and then there is one to the tune of Slade's 1973 number one "Come on Feel the Noise". Amazing to come to the other side of the world and here crowd songs that are just like those you would here at Slough versus Bideford on a wet Tuesday night in an English football match...

Meanwhile, Taiwan score a run in their first innings to take a 1-0 lead. 

Players line up before the start of the baseball ©Instagram

18:52 South Korea are scoreless in the first innings in the baseball, meanwhile, against Taiwan. A couple of solid hits but, when the bases were loaded, they were unable to force the ball away and had their third "out". Nine innings each remember... Each team trying to complete a "run" before three people are out, which means an innings ends. 

Iraqi flag18:47 A couple of good team results to report from elsewhere. Iran have defeated China 75-67 in their quarter-final round match in basketball. Iraq, meanwhile, have taken a great 3-0 win over Saudi Arabia in the men's football quarterfinals.

Iraq join Thailand and North Korea in the men's semi-finals, and the winner of the final match between South Korea and Japan. The host nation lead 1-0 in the closing stages. 

Accreditation photo of Paul Osborne18:40 "It's all turned a bit flat at the badminton following that brilliant semi-final between Li and Chong. On court now is reigning World champion Chen Long against Hong Kong's Wei Nan. Two points at the start of play was the highlight for Wei as Chen began to burn through the gears and ran away with a 21-6 first game. The second has started in similar fashion with the Chinese player well on top here." - Paul Osborne at the badminton. He has just bumped into Prince Imran apparently, the IOC member and Commonwealth Games Federation President, who will no doubt have been a little disappointed with the loss for Malaysia now. 

18:33 Back in the Munhak Stadium, we have had national anthems, the Mayor of Incheon, Song Young-gil, has been introduced and we are underway. I try not to succumb to hyperbole too often, but the atmosphere is magnificent in here. There's a section to my right where everyone is constantly singing, waving flags, with a deafening crescendo whenever a player moves. And they've barely started yet!

While there are no matches in the South Korean Professional League during the Games, meaning the best players are free to compete, it is the Taiwanese second-team, effectively, here in Incheon, so they have nothing to lose tonight. Not a bad second team, however, if their win over Japan is anything to go by...

Chinese flag18:25 Lin Dan wins the badminton semi-final over Lee Chong Wei! He powers through the decider 21-9 to win in 72 minutes by two games to one. The Malaysian had a much tougher match yesterday and clearly tired later on...

Double gold for Taiwan in golf - an omen for the baseball?

Incheon 2014 gold medal18:21 And that means Taiwan also took the gold medal  with a composite score of 819 shots. South Korea followed with 826 shots and Thailand carded under-10 206 for a composite score of 833 shots, good for the bronze medal.

Incheon 2014 gold medal18:16 A great omen ahead of the start of the baseball because Taiwanese golfer Pan Cheng Tsung has just held his nerve to win the men's individual golf title with a superb under-17 four-round total of 271. Kim Nam-hun of South Korea just couldn't quite keep up his sensational final round form and finishes second, two short behind. He shoots a final round 68 in comparison with Pan's 71.

Yu Chun An shot 67 for the final round to finish 12 under for the tournament, and win the bronze medal. 

18:09 Paul Osborne has nipped to catch the end of the badminton so I (Nick) am back on our blog for the time being now. I'm afraid there may be a bit of a baseball/badminton tinge to our coverage for the next couple of hours, but I hope you don't mind. We will make up for it over the next few days, other sports, I promise!

Nick Butler"I have arrived at the Moonhak Baseball Stadium and am in place for what promises to be one of the moments of the Games so far, the baseball final between South Korea and Taiwan. I've been here for over a week now, but this is one of my first opportunities to get out and about, away from the confines of the Media Centre, and, despite what everyone has been saying about the crowds, I am very impressed with the atmosphere so far. Next to the baseball arena is the football ground where UAE and North Korea were facing off and a crescendo of noise, singing and cheering from there is reverberating outside. There are hundreds of people milling about outside, with South Korean and Taiwanese flags and shirts, and this has the vibe that only a Sunday afternoon of top level sport can bring. Inside the ground, we have a chance to sample 'stadium-music' for one of the first times. Unsurprisingly, given the sport, there's a strong American vibe to the tunes so far, Blink 182, followed by Linkin Park and then 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams. The stadium is filling up, the players are warming up and we have a great evening ahead of us. A big one for the sport in its quest for Tokyo 2020 as well as for South Korea, and also for me...who for not the first time in my journalistic career, is in the position of covering a sport I know virtually nothing about. I won't refer to 'wicket-keeper', 'bowler' or 'rounders', I promise..." - Reporter Nick Butler ahead of the baseball final.

Into a decider in the badminton...

17:59 We're into a decider in the badminton as Lee Chong Wei seals the second game 21-12. 

We saw in the women's final that the winner of the opener can throw too much in the first game and pay the ultimate price. Is that going to be the case in this final?

Who even knows...

17:50 Big news in he basketball where China's men's team have been knocked out at the quarter-final stage following defeat to Iran.

It marks the first time in that China has failed to progress to the semi-final stage in what is their 11th appearances at the Games. 

17:45 It's first blood to Lin Dan in the badminton as he secures the opening game 22-20. You can hear the crowds cheering from down in the workroom here at the Gyeyang Gymnasium. Great stuff!

Drama at the football

17:37 Back to sport, I suppose, and North Korea have sealed a dramatic 1-0 win over United Arab Emirates in the quarter-finals of the men's football.

Goalless across the 90 minutes, Jong Ingwan netted a fine goal in extra time to ensure North Korea's first passage to the semi-finals on the fourth time of asking.

In 2010, the two teams met at the quarter-final stages as well with the UAE winning on this occasion after a 9-8 scoreline on penalties.

The opening quarter-final saw Thailand seal a 2-0 victory over Jordan in a game largely dominated by the Thai side.

17:30 A big argument has broken out here in the workroom. Unfortunately for me it's all being held in Korean so I have absolutely no idea what is happening. Fortunately, the badminton is on the big screen so there are other things to distract the mind. 

There are a lot of photographers within the "scrum" arguing so I can only image it's a heated discussion on where the nearest Burger King is.... I'd also like to know that, if I'm honest...

The "big one" has begun in the badminton

17:20 It's the big one in terms of men's badminton now as Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei up against Lin Dan of China in the first semi-final.

There is huge interest among the journalists here in the workroom with many, not me of course, leaving their work for later to keep a close eye on this encounter.

Lee Chong is Malaysia's most successful Olympian having taken silver at both Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

The Malaysian lost to Lin in both of these finals with the Chinese player considered on of the best singles badminton players of all time.

By the age of 28, Lin had completed the "Super Grand Slam", having won all nine major titles in the badminton world:Olympic Games, World Championships, World Cup, Thomas Cup, Sudirman Cup, Super Series Masters Finals, All England Open,Asian Games, and Asian Championships, becoming the first and only player to achieve this feat.

He also became the first men's singles player to retain the Olympic gold medal after sealing gold at London 2012.

17:12 Japan currently hold the lead in the bowling as the second block continues to run in the men's trios competition.

Tomoyuki Sasaki, Shogo Wada and Shusaku Asato hold the lead at 3881 after finishing off their second clock of three games.

Behind them are Singapore and Malaysia who are yet to finish their second blocks. To snatch victory from under the noses of Japan, Malaysia need to bowl a second block score of 1998 while Singapore need 2031.

Quote marks"I concentrated on my last shot, but I scored eight. I was fortunate to win a gold medal and I will continue to do well."
- Jinhyek Oh reflects on his gold medal from in the men's individual archery final.

Incheon 2014 gold medal17:01 The final archery contest has drawn to an end now and, surprisingly, gold has gone to South Korea!

Jinhyek Oh is the man to take it as he beats China's Zhiwei Yong 6-4 in the men's individual final.

The Chinese archer had taken a 4-0 lead after the first to sets, however, six points on the bounce gave the Korean his victory.

16:54 There's been a lot of action in the tennis this afternoon as we decide the finallists across each of the five categories.

The men's singles final will see Taiwan's Lu Yen Hsun take on Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka following win's over Yuichi Sugita of Japan and India's Yuki Bhambri respectively. 

It will be a Thailand versus China final in the women's singles after wins for Luksika Kumkhum and Wang Qiang, while the finalists for the three doubles contests are still being decided.

Incheon 2014 gold medal16:47 It's South Korean gold in the women's archery final. Ohh wait...

The all-South Korean final ends with victory for Jung Dasomi as she records a comfortable 7-1 scoreline against team mate Chang Hyejin.

Two perfect sets for Jung were crucial in this victory as she adds singles gold to the team title she picked up earlier today, alongside Chang.

16:41 After their shock defeat to Taiwan in yesterday's semi-final, Japan have hit back to decimate China 10-0 in the bronze medal playoff. 

It took just seven innings for the Japanese side to secure the bronze medal as they stepped up the pace following three opening innings of no score to smash their way to victory.

The gold medal match will begin in around an hour and a halves time where Taiwan and South Korea go head to head for one of the most prized medals at these Games.

Nick Butler will be at the venue to bring us all the updates there.

16:37 An all South Korean women's archery final is now going on, as action resumed for the final session over at the Gyeyang Asiad Archery Field. It's Jung Dasomi against Chang Hyejin, so two members of the trio who dominated the team final earlier turning from friend to foe.

The prior bronze medal match saw Japan's Ren Hayakawa fall to a 7-3 defeat at the hands of China's Xu Jing.

Incheon 2014 gold medal16:23 Thailand compete another victory in the second match of the sepak takraw men's team final against South Korea, to take a 2-0 victory overall in the best of three match series. Very comfortable in the end as the men follow the trend set for their women's team earlier.

Thailand have now won this event at the last five consecutive Asian Games. Their only blemish was a defeat in the final to Malaysia the first time the sport was contested, at Beijing 1990.

The two bronze medals this time around went to Indonesia and Malaysia.

Golfing update

16:15 It's time for me to eat my words (or that cleaning utensil Nick called a sandwich earlier), as we bring the latest golfing update. 

South Korea's Namhun Kim, who was third come the start of play, and "focusing on bronze rather than gold", is now first...

The Korean is five under par after 13 holes and sits level with Taiwan's overnight leader Cheng Tsung Pan.

Eunho Youm, who had caught the leader after the first hole, now lies in tied third after a series of bogies has left him four over par for the day.

Taiwan's Chun An Yu has put in a spectacular final round performance to move level with the Korean as he notches five under through 15 holes, while China's Zhengkai Bai sits one shot behind in third alongside India's Udayan Mane.

It's chaotic out on the course so I'm going to leave the predictions to somebody else....

Update on Japanese camera thief

16:07 Some more on the news we brought you yesterday now that a member of the Japanese swimming team, former world champion Naoya Tomita, had been expelled from the country's team after being caught stealing a camera from a South Korean jounalist. (read the full story here)

Incheon 2014 press relations bureau, Park Dal-hwa, has revealed today that Tomita has been charged and is currently being investigated.

"He has admitted to the charges and is being charged without retention because he has returned the stolen property," he said. "On Monday the prosector will begin his investigation. He will then leave the country. JSF (Japanese Swimming Federation) will expell the athlete from the Federation. The prosecutors opinion is not to go for prosecution, as the camera was not the journalist's property it was the media's."

Badminton gold for Wang

Incheon 2014 gold medal15:55 Gold number 101 for China now. That didn't take long. Wang Yihan continues here impressive form in the badminton to seal the third and final game, and take gold in the women's badminton singles final.

Li Xuerui had looked on course to repeat the result of the London 2012 badminton final after storming to a 21-11 opening game.

Wang dug deep to clinch the second 21-17, however, and was almost faultless in the decider as she sealed it 21-7 to ensure the gold.

The two bronze were won by Tai Tzu Ying of Taiwan and Bae Yeonju of South Korea.

Gold number 100 for China

Incheon 2014 gold medal15:45 There's gold number 100 for China! The duo of Ma Yuanyuan and Xia Xinyi seal the second set 21-18 to wrap up the match 2-0.

Thailand's Tanaratta Udomchavee and Varapatsorn Radarong had begun to stumble in the latter stages of the opening set, which they lost 21-12 and, despite a late surge in the second, could not beat the sturdy Chinese defence.

The result ensures a Chinese gold and bronze, and also marks the 100th gold for the dominant Chinese here at the Asian Games.

Incheon 2014 gold medal15:40 There's been a Qatari gold over at Dream Park as the Nasser  Ghazallijahromi, Ali Al Thani, Khalid Alemadi, and Basem Mohammed secure jumping team gold.

The quartet walked away with zero penalty points to claim gold ahead of Saudi Arabi, who finished with four.

Japan will also make their way to podium as they secure bronze with 12 penalty points.

15:32 It's all happening in the badminton here at the Gyeyang Gymnasium where Wang Yihan and Li Xuerui are battling for gold in the women's singles.

In a repeat of the London 2012 Olympic final, which was won by Li, the pair are fighting tooth and nail in this contest. Li came out swinging in the first game, snatching it 21-11, before Wang levelled it up with a 21-17 win in the second. 

There are decent crowds inside the gym, albeit not full, and the fans are really loving it here. The pair, of course, won team gold together earlier in the week.

Chinese flag15:25 Not going quite so well in the beach volleyball as the Chinese duo Ma and Xi take the first set 21-12 in just 16 minutes. Too good by the Chinese who seem the more composed, keeping the ball in play more, but also producing the big shots when necessary. 

15:17 Back to Thailand, and they have taken the first match of the men's sepak takraw team final against South Korea. 21-10, 21-9 in just 41 minutes. It is a best of three contest remember, so the host nation can still fight back, but they will really to up their game.

Possible match-fixing in Incheon 2014 men's football matches

15:10 The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is looking into reports that unnamed football matches here may have been fixed, it has emerged.

"Following recent reports of possible match manipulation at the Incheon Asian Games 2014 football competition, the AFC would like to confirm that we are closely monitoring the situation," the AFC have said in a statement. They added that they are collaborating with the OCA to look into the matter.

"We are also working hand in hand with Sportradar to thoroughly review the provided information on suspicious betting patterns," they said. "The AFC is determined to eradicate match fixing in Asia and we will ensure that no stone is left unturned in the pursuit of our goal."

Match-fixing is a particular problem in parts of Asia with recent cases having been reported in Vietnam and Malaysia. 

Quote marks"We did ask for investigation by the OCA and the AFC to make sure the games (men's football) were not fixed but since there was a challenge, it is currently being investigated. In order to prove there is match fixing we need concrete proof. The results will take time." - An Incheon 2014 spokesman when asked about the allegations today.

15:01 It's been a good day for Thailand so far, with that win in sepak takraw earlier. And there could be more to come. Varapatsorn Radarong and Tanarttha Udomchavee are just starting their women's beach volleyball final against Ma Yuanyuan and Xia Xinyi of China. The Chinese pair won the Asian Championships on home soil, sorry, home sand, in Wuhan last year, so are probably favourites, although there shouldn't be too much in it.

Thai flag
I seem to have invaded the Thai contingent of the Media Centre, meanwhile, and all the screens around me are showing their country's football quarter-final clash with Jordan. And a roar goes up as Chanathip Songkrasin scores to put the South East Asian side 1-0 ahead. It's 0-0 in the other quarter-final clash currently going on, between North Korea and the United Arab Emirates.

South Korea face Japan, and Saudi Arabia play Iraq later. 

Malaysian flag14:47 A nine-wicket win in cricket to report this morning for Malaysia over China. making 56-7 before Malaysia swiftly passed the target with just nine overs gone, 58-1 they scored. A swashbuckling innings of 32 off 33 balls by Suhan Kumar Alagaratanam of Malaysia. 

This was part two of the China v Malaysia rivalry today. China were resolutely on top in the archery final earlier, but it is now 1-1, ahead of the clash between a certain Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei in badminton later on...

14:38 Right, the afternoon programme is hotting up now, with badminton medals action starting soon, and the second finals of the day in sepak takraw and bowling also beginning. The men's golfers are chipping, driving and putting their way towards the medals, while the women's beach volleyball final is also beginning in a few minutes time. 

Gold for South Korea in cycling road race?

Incheon 2014 gold medal14:30 Jang Kyung-gu of South Korea sprints to victory in the cycling road race! He holds of Arvin Moazami Godarzi of Iran in a fight for the line. took silver. There is also a six-way fight for the bronze, 59 seconds behind the leading duo, Leung Chun Wing of Hong Kong crossing the line third. 

14:25 The leading duo are still together. We are coming down to a sprint finish...

Closing stages of the cycling road race

But two riders have broken clear! Jang Kyunggu of South Korea and Arvin Moazami Godarzi of Iran. The Iranian finished second in this event at the 2013 Asian Championships in New Delhi. Jang finished 13th in the Guangzhou 2010 road race. Is this the winning move?

14:14 The group of 15 riders are still there, although the pace has risen and there have been several attempts to break off the front, including by Leung Chun Wing of Hong Kong, who has already competed on the track in the team pursuit at these Games. This race, remember, is being held on the same day as the World Championship road race in Ponferrada, Spain.

Only two Asian countries, Kazakhstan and Japan, have riders entered for that event this afternoon.

14:09 Right, closing stages of the cycling road race now, so we are going to divert our gaze onto this one. Paul, incidentally, has just headed off to the badminton. We are hoping to be able to bring you some more coverage from the venues themselves from now on. 

Kuwait flag14:02 A good win for Kuwait today, 3-1 over Nepal in table tennis. That win partially avenges the loss sustained yesterday in cricket, when the Kuwaiti team were all out for 20 and their opponents required just 17 balls to get the runs... The less said about that one the better.

It is also worth saying that Ali N A Y Marafi is currently 173 shots behind the leaders and down in 80th place in the men's golf. But that said, Kuwait have had a very good Games, with a flurry of shooting medals and a brilliant win in squash courtesy of Abdullah Almezayen, one of my moments of the Games so far. They have also competed in events, such as women's triathlon, that have never participated in before. 

Chinese flag13:53 We're going to get our Chinese flag out again because that team golf bronze is a 200th medal of Incheon 2014 for China!

Thailand and South Korea take golf titles

Incheon 2014 gold medal13:46 The team scores finish as we stated earlier (13:01) with Thailand taking the gold with a total of 38 under par, South Korea behind them in silver on 31 under and China rounding off the podium with 17 under.

Incheon 2014 gold medal13:41 South Korea's Gyeol Park has wrapped up gold in the women's individual golf competition as she birdies the 18th for a final score of 19 under par. Despite holding the overnight lead, Thailand's Budsabakorn Sukapan has had to settle with silver after carding a 67 five under par on the final day to sit 18 under for the tournament. Supramas Sangchan finishes on 14 under to seal bronze.

A one shot win after 72 holes of golf! Magnificent stuff!

IAAF Presidential contenders here in Incheon

13:30 Sergey Bubka, Coe's anticipated rival in the race to replace Lamine Diack as IAAF President next year, has also been visiting...

Twitter logoFantastic sport celebration for fans in Asia and across the globe. Olympic movement becomes more and more global. @incheonAG2014en. Great job done by the organizers from @Korea_Olympic, OCAsia and its President Sheikh Al-Sabah.

13:27 Despite the disappointment yesterday, Bahrain won silver and bronze in the 5,000m yesterday, their first two medals of the Games. Among those delighted with the performance was West Asian Athletics Federation and Bahrain Athletics Association Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, who arrived in Incheon recently.

During his presence at the stadium, Shaikh Khalid met a certain British Olympic Association chairman, Sebastian Coe, and presented this commemorative gift below.

Jebet reinstated because she did not "violate rules", OCA reveal

Bahrain flag13:18 Some more details about the reinstation of Bahraini 3,000m runner, Ruth Jebet now (see 11:54-12:09). OCA Games Director Haidar Farman has revealed the decision followed a review, and that the medals table will take place this evening. "The jury reviewed all of the protests by the three Olympic Committees and they confirmed that there was no violation of the rules and the gold medal will be given again to Bahrain runner Ruth Jebet," he told AFP

This follows frantic meetings between Asian Athletics Association (AAA) officials and delegates from Bahrain, China and India. Bahrain, somewhat understandably, were particularly furious with the way the incident was handled. Bahrain Olympic Committee secretary-general Abdulrahman Askar said there had been an "injustice" to Jebet in the way the medal was withdrawn. He said he had expressed Bahrain's displeasure to the AAA technical committee and AAA president Dahlan al Hamad, saying "the decision violated all norms and traditions in sport".

"How can they withdraw the medal during the ceremony," he added, according to The Malaysian Insider. "It is the first time in my life that I have seen such an incident. It is not fair to pull the medal during the ceremony."

South Korean bowling gold

Incheon 2014 gold medal13:10 South Korea have taken the women's triples title in bowling today. Lee Na-young, Jung Da-wun and Son Yun-hee dominating the two day event to finish with a total of 3,896 pin-falls at the Anyang HoGye Gymnasium. 

But there were big changes on the leaderboard behind them, when Taiwan and Japan slumped from their overnight positions of second and third respectively, leading to Singapore's Cherie Tan, NewHui Fen, and Jazreel Tan grasping silver. Another South Korean team, Lee Young-seung, Jeon Eun-hee, and Kim Jin-sun, took bronze.

South Korean and Thailand honing in on women's golf titles

Thai flag13:01 With two players lying in second and third, and another, Benyapa Niphatsophon, carding a 65 on the final day, Thailand have all but sealed the team gold medal as they sit seven shots clear of South Korea in second. In fact, it's safe to say that with a single hole left to play, Thailand have secured the gold, South Korea the silver and China the bronze with the respective teams holding huge margins on the teams below them.

South Korean flag12:54 Despite the leaders only just starting in the men's competition, the leaders of the women's golf are drawing to a close. Thailand's Budsabakorn Sukapan started the day two strokes clear on 13 under par but has dropped into second following a phenomenal day by South Korea's Gyeol Park. The Korean has shot seven under par already today to move a stroke clear of Sukapan on 18 under for the tournament.

There's just the final hole to go here now, the Par 4 18th, with all still to play for as the golfers tee-up. In third is another Thai golfer, Suparmas Sangchan, who we can safely say has secured the bronze as she sits five clear of China's Yuting Shi in fourth but three behind her team mate Sukapan who will be battling to regain the lead on the last.

12:45 The golf competition is hotting up now as our leaders finally take to the course. Taiwan's Cheng Tsung Pan had the overnight lead in the men's at 16 under par but has been caught early by South Korea's Eunho Youm following a birdie on the first. Another Korean, Namhun Kim sits five strokes behind the leader on 11 under but will likely have his sights firmly set on a podium position rather than a gold, as China's Zhengkai Bai looks to chase him down in fourth.

The Chinese golfer began the day in tenth on eight under par but three birdies on the first three holes has seen him shoot up the leaderboard into fourth. Thailand's Danthai Boonma, who won bronze at the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games sits a further shot down in fifth alongside India's Udayan Mane. There's a tight tussle in the team event as well with Taiwan currently a piddly two shots ahead of South Korea, with China back in third.
