OK, the cricket fight back against South Africa was down to a South African, but that apart, and ignoring the bloody football, tonight is a night when we should feel proud to be British. I'm no fan of West Ham's proposed move to the Olympic Stadium, but after tonight it should be renamed the Theatre of the Sporting Gods based on the efforts of Rutherford, Farah and Jessica Ennis. And all that on top of two more golds in the rowing and another in the cycling. We are third in the medals table - truly incredible!
And best of all is the marvelous sportsmanship on show and the wonderful humility of our champions. Of course fantastic wealth will follow these victories but it is obvious that these heroes are true Olympians, valuing sporting Gold over the gold of Mammon. What a contrast to the likes of Giggs who couldn't even bring himself to sing the anthem!
Rutherford was cocky and glorious. Ennis was brilliant and humble. But Farah topped the lot with a breathtaking break at the bell, daring to win it from the front with a host of brilliant distance runners trailing in his wake. Absolutely awesome!
What a night!
