I know I sound like a real killjoy, but how long is left on the Olympic Games?! I'm bored stiff with it, the news is so hyperactive about our (fairly respectable) rush of medals that you'd think nothing else was going on in the world. It's the constant fawning media coverage that has killed it for me - all I really want to know is the winners of each event, a quick glimpse of Tom Daly in his pants and my four-yearly lust after Usain Bolt... I don't need to know about the Team GB cyclists' crotch blisters or the fact one of the Chinese swimmers had her period. Roll on the end of the madness and give me my proper news back!

Waaaay too much info @shaggin - I think our sports journalists would follow the athletes into the toilet and report on the colour of their poop if they could get away with it!

@chrisandmark LOL and then they would probably have someone there fishing it out trying to sell it on ebay!

Sorry you feel like that - we are loving it in our house. We don't watch everything, but what we do, we enjoy.

Oh, World Cup all the way for me @tallawah - I had to smile as the very first post I read after posting this was yours about Elaine Thompson, made me realise not everyone is as down on the olympics as me!
