London 2012: Team GB return

August 25, 2008

For all my sniping about our ability to present a suitably gripping Olympics in 2012 and despite my lack of interest in sport (except for the sight of the sportsmen themselves), I did end up feeling rather excited about the prospect of Team GB returning to the UK today.

It was billed on the BBC website. I’m a sucker for anything broadcast live and in light of our surprising performance in the Beijing Olympics, perhaps it wasn’t really that surprising I ended up feeling really rather proud of our boys and girls.

Well done to them. And pity Lord Coe – he looked and sounded absolutely exhausted when he stepped back on to British soil – who not only had the Olympics to deal with in the run up to the handover but also suffered the death of his father in early August 2008.
