14 gold medals and counting.

With still a few more days to go, could Australia surpass its 17 gold medal record haul in Athens 2004, or 16 at the 2000 Sydney Olympics?

To the markets, where the ASX touched an all-time intraday high of 7509, before petering out to close at 7503, 0.38% higher than yesterday.

The market was led by energy and the miners, rising by around 1% each, while healthcare dragged it down and falling by 0.45%.

CitiBank has become the latest giant to launch a buy now, pay later (BNPL) product in Australia, adding to the crowded domestic field where giant Square is also now in the fray.

Citi’s BNPL product will allow customers to buy items up to $1000, to be paid back in four interest-free instalments.
