Parts 2 & 3: Usain Bolt: The Greatest?
First up: we’re going to hear your reaction to Usain Bolt’s extraordinary performance last night. On Monday we asked who’s the greatest of Olympian of them all. I think it’s Bolt, the first man to win gold in the 100m and 200m not once, but twice but even more than his extraordinary performance is the way he conducts himself. Bonkers but brilliant, or an arrogant showoff according to critics?

Whatever your view we’d love to hear it. After taking plenty of your calls it’s over to Tasha for the rest of today's headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Stamps For Each Golden Paralympian?
After that: I want to know if you’re troubled by the Royal Mail’s refusal to honour team GB’s gold medal winning paralympians in the same way they’re honouring our non-disabled champs? While Sir Chris Hoy and co have been given their own individual stamps paralympian champs will have to share that honour. Is that fair? Not sure it is.

Part 6: Dating While Pregnant
For our final phone-in of the week we after your stories of dating while pregnant, something that cropped up in Neighbours yesterday. 90 per cent of single mums-to-be reckon the rest of us look down on them if they dare to date. Is that something you’ve experienced.

    Women giving birth always complain of the pain, then go on to have more children by choice, ask a guy if he'd like another kick to the unmentionables the answer will ALWAYS be NO, proof therein which is the most painful. Discuss hee hee.

    I think the comments about the postage stamps - you are completely missing the point. Royal Mail are not being nice issuing stamps with gold medalists. It is about sales and unfortunately the general public are more interested in the none paralympians!

    What has usain bolt done exactly - win his events like everyone else. Legend! To be a legebd you have to inspire people and do things to,support and help people outside your sport. Racism has nothing to do with it, I would be turned off them as much as I was with bolt. Confidence and arrogance are different things, jessica ennis and mo are better than bolt especially as ennis is a multi discipline athlete, and are humbke, you can win and still be respectful
