    Olympics

    Yes, MJ did refer, a couple of times, to the internal disputes still going on in the US track team. Also he pointedly said he and Carl Lewis never agree on anything! Good point re the lowest common denominator. I miss the days when David Coleman said of the great Cuban 800M runner Alberto...

    Olympics

    I tend to agree. The coverage was like a magazine for teenagers. The one standout (by a mile) was the ever charismatic Michael Johnson.

    Olympics

    The Tokyo olympics provided a powerful example of the principal less is more. There was a silent undercurrent of schuedenfraude when the US women's football team was beaten by Sweden. The sporting world had not forgotten the cringing histrionics of Megan Rapinoe, the US team captain at the...

    On the question of French dishes (apologies, Mike, the plural is coqs au van. I'm trying to revisit O level French and its grim progress) General de Gaulle had a dry, Gallic sense of humour. In the 1960s he promoted independence for Algeria. Senior and retired army officers opposed this and...

Only 2 hours left for more interesting fun facts and figures about F1 and the endless debate in the pits - which is better, petrol or chip shop oil?

    You raise an interesting point. Players, managers and even grounds come and go but an idea, 'the football club' sustains. Often passed from generation to generation. Its a bit like Trigger's broom - 15 handles and 23 brush heads but it remains Trigger's broom and he is proud of it. Mange tout...

    Noel, what on earth do you expect from English football fans - I assume you mean the terrible boo bombing of the German national anthem and the mawkish decision of the TV director to aim the camera at a young German fan in tears. Where are my spoons, I need to count them again. Your resigned and...

    The Tokyo Olympics audience will be huge, if only to see how the IOC deals with, and the coverage of, the trans gender issue in sport. How will interested parties react. National federations world-wide are continuing to wrestle with this issue and Tokyo will be the first global event to platform...
