Ra Ra The Brits
This kind of nationalistic sports guff reminds me of BBC Olympic coverage in the 1970s with television cameras covering British runners at the back of the field while the race was ending. How can The Telegraph put a young 14 year old girl winning the girls championship above Venus Williams winning Wimbledon, which gets a little link heading underneath.
With honorary Englishman and Great White Hope, Andy Murray pooping out earlier, I suppose there has to be something that that you can close your eyes and think of England about. There is always next year......
Well done all the same Laura Robinson. No doubt she is a prohibitive favourite for Wimbledon next year in the parochial UK sports journalists minds.
And well done to Venus Williams.
