By the way we came 62nd in the medals table. If Egan had won the Gold we would have been 52nd. Amazingly South Africa only won 2 medals and we gave Afghanistan a good hiding.....eh....

Where did India come? They're an Olympics black hole by all accounts.

Jaysus don't be mentioning the black hole of Ahoghill Calcutta..you'll have Lestat all over ye claiming it's white.

They won one gold and two bronze.

Boris is a twat, but he is an intelligent twat. Some people don't realise that and I would imagine if one took him on it would be at their peril.

Just caught sight of him on the box declaring that Britain invented all the main Olympic sports. Forgot about Greece I guess. I was interested to learn though that Ping Pong was invented on the dining tables of Victorian England and was called Wing Wam.

The Americans have learned a lot from them and I don't mean Ping Pong.

It was called Wiff Waff actually. It used to be played over a dining room table with a cork and cigar tins.
