The odd thing is, though, we seem to be doing a lot better these days than when I was a kid watching the Games. 1976 for example......I think we won a solitary bronze in track and field, and we were not good enough to even compete in some of the events.
I suppose it's simply higher expectations now.

We can bounce back. We may never have an Empire again; but we are still one of the leading economies . Think positively. Let's get rid of parasites, including Europe (the southern states, not the northern ones that make a profit) and we can once again enjoy prosperity. It's up to each of you to do your bit, and within a generation we can turn ourselves around.

Wiggo is fab. He looked like he'd just popped to the shops at the end of that race, he must be superhumanly fit. To do the Tour, the road race and the time trial so close together is a hell of a feat. I need a lie down just thinking about it.
I liked the way he got back on the bike and rode off to look for his family straight after.

Wiggos comment "we will do the raffle in a minute" at the end of the Tour was brilliant.
