Rutherford’s gold came within the same hour of Jessica Ennis’ in the heptathlon, with Mo Farah going on to claim 10,000m glory just moments later.

It meant Team GB claimed six gold medals on that Saturday, August 4, and here are the best bits from Rutherford’s reaction on Twitter while he watched the action unfold…
