The year sports reporters gave up any pretence of journalism and just asked, ‘can you talk us through it’.
Sportspeople can sometimes exaggerate what they suffer to compete. Not in this case.
I see Swansea were beaten by Tottenham today so under Brexit rules their fans now have to get over it and support Spurs.
Other broadcasters look on in envy, amazement or perhaps something entirely different at BBC ingenuity and resourcefulness before the Rio Olympics Cycling Road Race.
I’ve a suspicion something isn’t quite right here.
2016 Tour de France Stage 13 Time Trial between Bourg-Saint-Andéol and La Caverne du Pont-d’Arc.
Can you spot the leaders of a major international sporting event?
Richie Porte, Chris Froome and Bauke Mollema on the climb to Mount Ventoux during the 12th stage of the 2016 Tour de France. Winds gusting to 120kmph near the summit had forced the climb to be shortened by six kilometres so the Bastille Day crowds had to fit in a much shorter distance leading to even greater encroachment onto the road, ultimately causing the television camera motorbike to stop and the riders to crash into it.
