I think they will have to get married and live together. It’s a beautiful Olympic golden love story. 

That really made me laugh.

How will they share the gold medal? Will they cut it in half?

That would be brilliant, Tone. When they inevitably get told to do that stupid photo pose of pretending to bite the medal, they would be able to pretend that the other half is shoved inside their mouth.

Men's 100m final

Zharnel Hughes sends a massive grin down the camera. He's relishing this.

Buckle up my friends. Here. We. Go.

NOOOOOOOOO!

A false start from GB's Zharnel Hughes. He's disqualified.


Good old BBC Sport.

Lamont Marcell Jacobs. A fine Italian name.

His mother is Italian apparently and he lived almost his entire life there.

So? What part of the name is Italian?

Thought that you got one false start before disqualification 

You used to. Not any more. Very very harsh in a race of such tight margins

Great finish to the high jump there, and a surprise winner in the 100m. Good half an hour for the Italians that.

 

A British sprinter false-starting when the stakes are high is as predictable as Tim Henman double-faulting his way to a semi final defeat at a Grand Slam.

BBC pundits not exactly sympathetic to Hughes there.

As in, he isn't just someone representing Italy to avoid having to go through American trials or something or some other convenient arrangement.

So, none of it then. Glad we cleared that up.

He did just beat the two Americans anyway.

Moved to Italy when he was 5 and came through the Italian system. But despite those facts he’s not Italian or something like that!
