As Bradley Wiggins celebrated his gold medal last night he won’t know how happy he has made me. Why I hear you ask – I have no affinity to any of the Olympic sports – because it means that Steve ‘ego’ Redgrave won’t be continually wheeled out to bleat on about how he is Britains greatest Olympian. No doubt Sir Ego will moan that using a bike is not as hard as rowing because there are no tides so perpetual motion helps you a great deal more.
