    I missed Yugoslavia. While I remembered to separate Germany and West Germany, I forgot about Russia and Soviet Union.

    It implies West Germany somehow ceased to exist in 1990 and became a brand new country.

    Surely Finland and South Korea are the two least likely ever summer countries.

    I also got 23/24. Although I did get a hint from your Germany / W. Germany comment.

    One missed: South Korea.

    Oh dear. Giles Scott is nowhere near as hot as Sir Ben Ainslie. But then again, who is?

    Argentinian fans for Del Potro just wearing the Argentina football kit. Tut. They could have at least just brought a flag.

    Gold for England and Silver for Scotland.

    Kenny can make it 6 golds in the Keirin.

    I'M SO HAPPY WHEN TENNIS IS OVER.

    Thesepast 8 days have been almost more exhausting than a slam.

    Not gonna happen.

    Del Potro running on fumes can't win in 4 or 5 sets.

    He's no longer odds on favourite but is a slight favourite.

    This lady is favourite to win another gold for China in lifting heavy stuff

    Is anyone else finding the argentines in the crowd here fucking annoying? I feel sorry for Andy that he only seems to have 2 fans there (those twats in the tartan hats)

    It's perfectly fair so far. At least what they do is CHEER LOUDLY. It's a match in South America, nothing wrong with Del Potro getting the majority of the support.

    The Brazilians just boo.

    Still in a strong position, but hopefully that pesky Italian will come a cropper tomorrow.

    Is there a more beautiful man than Del Potro? Juan Monaco comes a close second.

    From a purely selfish point of view... Andy please wrap this up now! I can't stay up for 5 sets

    Loved it so far, expected it to be a walkover for Murray but Delpo has been fantastic.

    It's been getting more shambolic with each passing set IMO.

    Murray's faffing about, particularly mentally, has been remarkable. Bone-headed stuff, particularly during half of the first set and much of the 2nd and 4th.
