Whilst I am delighted that the football season is back in business, I cannot stop thinking about the magical 16 days of sport that we had the privilege of hosting in our country's capital.
Oscar Pistorius made history this week when it was confirmed he would be the first athlete with a prosthetic device to take part in the Olympic Games, but what really does this mean for the future of sport and society more widely?
So, how do you really feel about the Olympics? To be honest, I've been a bit bah-humbug about the whole thing ever since London won the bid. And I'm not alone. There's even been a snipey series on TV about the imaginary behind-the-scenes shenanigans and decisions-by-committee disasters.
Ronaldo has some new boots. Have you seen them? They're cheat's boots.
