We won!!! Well done, Sir Seb Coe and Co!!! You’ve done us proud.
I confess, I doubted you. I thought it would be another example of the plucky Brits putting on a brave show but ultimately losing out to somewhere a bit more…. glamorous. But somebody changed the script – fantastic!
This is a marvellous opportunity to regain our national self-esteem, to stop running ourselves down, to lift our heads, square our shoulders, and face the world with confidence again. Let’s go for it and glory in it!
