Every four years, we go absolutely wild for sports we know next to nothing about. Fencing? Get it on the telly. Synchronised swimming? Absolutely. Dressage? Bring it.

Josie Brightwell makes a great point. HRH Glenn Close - the undisputed queen of styling it out with a good blast of head voice. If we give the USA Glenn Close, can we have Imelda Staunton sing 'God Save the Queen' every time Team GB wins gold as well please?
Whenever the USA win gold and they play their National Anthem, I hear Glenn Close. #freeeee #olympics— Josie Brightwell (@JosieBrightwell) August 10, 2016
Just sidle up and sit down poolside in some red shorts. They won't throw you out. Confidence is everything. Godspeed Mark Townsend.
