What a way to start.

DesolateWaist Mon 15-Aug-16 01:16:16

Second place.

Flisspaps Mon 15-Aug-16 01:17:02

I've had Spandau Ballet playing in my head for the last few hours grin

BeJayKayven Mon 15-Aug-16 01:17:51

WooHoo - arise Sir Andy!!!
Del Potro (sp) seems lovely 😍 but brilliant result for team GB 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧😂

I am so tired but need to see this medal ceremony...

DesolateWaist Mon 15-Aug-16 01:20:42

The cat is very annoyed with me.
She gets some biscuits at bedtime. She wants to know why I'm still up.

I'm tired too but the tennis went on so long that now it's nearly the 100 metres. Aaarggh. Must go to bed. Goodnight.

Fedupofallthemud Mon 15-Aug-16 01:21:37

Me too where has it gone? Tooo tired to remember if I changed the channel!

Flisspaps Mon 15-Aug-16 01:22:45

Me too only, I think we deserve to see our winnings, clearly it was MN support that gave him the edge so it's our medal too forget I suggested taking silver I didn't mean it

Flisspaps Mon 15-Aug-16 01:23:45

They'll go back to it on BBC 1 once they've finished fannying about I think, so they're showing the 100m semis

C'mon Usain

onlywhenyouleave Mon 15-Aug-16 01:24:30

fliss yes, our support clearly helped grin they need to get on with it!!

onlywhenyouleave Mon 15-Aug-16 01:26:56

Maybe it took them a while to locate Nishikori grin

Andy looks like he is struggling to hold it together sad

DesolateWaist Mon 15-Aug-16 01:28:11

Can't believe they haven't cut back over to the tennis medals.

DesolateWaist Mon 15-Aug-16 01:30:26

Poor Murray. He looks knackered.

Flisspaps Mon 15-Aug-16 01:30:47

Just caught the medals on the arse end of nowhere channel 576 hmm

DesolateWaist Mon 15-Aug-16 01:32:03

He's broken his ornament!

Fedupofallthemud Mon 15-Aug-16 01:32:04

angry
Sitting here waiting to see it!

DesolateWaist Mon 15-Aug-16 01:33:07

I'm watching it all online via Apple TV. Just pick the stream from the iplayer app.

TendonQueen Mon 15-Aug-16 01:36:03

What a match! Both of them were awesome. So glad Andy prevailed. Either would have been a worthy winner but it is a fantastic achievement for him and Team GB.

Elsewhere, Bolt ran 9.84 very easily in his semi. It will be Bolt v Gatlin in final. I wouldn't bet against Bolt.

FranHastings Mon 15-Aug-16 01:37:31

What did he do with the ornament once he broke it?
Thought he seemed exhausted too. Managed to find it on an iplayer stream too.

TendonQueen Mon 15-Aug-16 01:37:58

Above comment wouldn't post on the previous thread so I brought it over. Have gone up to bed now after fruitlessly searching for tennis medal ceremony. I'll have to find it tomorrow. How emotional was it?

Can't stay up for Bolt. Too tired now.

FranHastings Mon 15-Aug-16 01:43:37

Not very emotional, I think they'd already done their crying.

DesolateWaist Mon 15-Aug-16 01:45:35

He hid the ornament behind his back!

I follow his dog on Twitter.

AmIthatbloodycold Mon 15-Aug-16 01:48:53

What a lovely thread to find.

I cried out. The ceremony was good. Delpo should be proud of his silver medal but Andy, back to back gold medals, is someone to be very proud of
