Like that's a big thing on here?

Well it must be to some. Plenty of people enjoy cycling and will follow the tour. Parts of it are in England

Is there a formula one icon?

No I don't think so. You can ask for icons.

Can anyone tell me how to use them please, the last two times, I have ended up with a string of text instead of a smiley face. I daren't ask my teenager for fear of the rolly eyes

Not sure why you got a string of text cuddy, but make sure you type it exactly as it is in the list - no spaces after or before the square brackets. If in doubt, click "preview message" before you post.

I'm always embarrassed when I post what I think is a pithy comment that ends in [wonk] because I didn't check it first!

I've never even noticed that blush

We just had the Giro in NI, it was great fun. Everybody got really behind it and showed support. Even non cyclists like me. I thought the icon was for that.

I guess the same reason there is a tennis emotion, sports events. I guess we will have a football and rugby ball for the world cups as well?
