If talking were an Olympic sport I'm pretty sure I'd be world class. Move over Wiggins, here I come, making my bid for Gold in the freestyle talking nonsense relay - complete with signature hand gestures, accents and facial expressions. The Italians, who, let's face it, would be the only real competition, wouldn't even come close!
Next summer, on the peerless courts of the All England Club, two players will end the 88-year reign of R. Norris Williams and Hazel Wightman as the mixed doubles champions of Olympic tennis. For the good of the sport, and the good of the Games, let us hope those players are Roger Federer and Martina Hingis.
