Quote Of The Day
“I just finished the 4 x 100m final in front of my home fans and in this very moment I, and the rest of the team, were unsure as whether I’d won gold. To be honest, I didn’t know what to do with my hands and I think I was biting the baton out of nerves. I was feeling a whole range of emotions, a lot of adrenaline and also a little anxiety. … For what seemed like an eternity I waited on the result and when I saw it flash up (Great Britain set a new national record of 37.47 to win by 0.05 from the US) it seemed such an overwhelming experience. I’m a big fan of Arsenal (Premier League football team) and I felt like Thierry Henry scoring a match-winning goal. I felt super-human.”
