    Can't believe it - GB is currently second in the medal table, with more golds and silvers combined than even China. Given the size of the nation it's an incredible achievement and we have won in some sports where other countries typically dominate. I can't imagine we will stay in second but I am happy to enjoy the moment.

    Well done to the whole of Team GB!

    Is it a coincidence that some countries have really gone to pot since they have been focusing on cleaning up the drug cheating?

    Britain punches above it's weight. Some great personal efforts but with more coordinated backing to convert talent into medals.

    The support for Olympic athletes has been excellent and part of the legacy from the build up and delivery of the 2012 games. Money is focused to where success is likely which has led to "have and have nots" situations plus athletes with performance drops have seen funding go which can be harsh.

    In my opinion, however, that's how success is nurtured so I am glad to see the GB Olympic authorities having the bottle to make the calls. It's something the FA could emulate.
