Despite getting back from my Olympic adventures in London on Sunday evening I’ve only just managed to sit down and put all the photos on my laptop. And delete those that could only be described, charitably, as a double fault.
Here are a few of my favourites images and the moments they’re from:
There was, of course, the trip down to SW19 to see the Olympic Tennis – to soak up Murray Mania and the Team GB chants (I’ll save you the photo of me impersonating a picture of Pride the Lion, Team GB’s mascot). It was incredible, and Murray going on to clinch the gold just makes it even more special.
I had an incredible time in London, something I will remember for the rest of my life. I’ve been excited for the Olympics long before I realised I was going, and through the national cynicism I’ve always said that when the time came Britain would love the Olympics. We would all get very much into the Olympic spirit. And boy have we done that, I’ve never seen London, or the country as a whole, so jubilant about sport. And this is, without a doubt, being spurred on by the success of our athletes. Team GB have performed truly spectacularly and done us all proud – congratulations to one and all. Whoever it refers to, ‘Generation‘ I hope you are inspired – I know I certainly am.
Team GB: 500 Athletes, 60 million strong. Our greatest team.
