Team GB's Deputy Chef De Mission and Elite Performance Director Clive Woodward has insisted that the country is doing well at the Olympics so far.
Amid fears that a gold medal continues to elude Team GB four days into the Games, Sir Clive Woodward said Britain was only just warming up, and the country's strongest events are yet to come.
He told reporters that "no one should expect to win a gold medal", and that the only real hope that had not come to fruition so far was Mark Cavendish in the road race.
Speaking of other athletes, he said Adlington had done incredibly well in the 400m freestyle with the 800m, her strongest event, yet to come.
He added that Britain's boxing team had been astonishing so far.
