Lynsey Sharp: “Just remembered I promised myself a Chanel handbag if I won a medal.”
Andy Vernon (sarcastically): “You won a medal? You should mention it now and again.”
Sharp: “It’s not my fault cross-country doesn’t get quite as much publicity.”
Vernon: “Self-publicity isn’t quite the same. And I don’t use a drip to get my medals.”
Sharp: “Andy Vermin, I had 5ml of fluid through a drip, about the same volume as one tear I just cried looking at your performances.”
Vernon: “It’s not about who’s better. It’s about how you use Twitter. Be proud of your medal. You just don’t need to tell us every day.”
Vernon (later): “I will formally apologise to Lynsey Sharp when I see her, but for now please accept my apologies. What started as a joke got out of hand.”
