    I think the overseas award should have gone to Alex Zanardi, a true sportsman and a gent.
    Instead they gave it to someone who does a bit of running, just because he does a funny shape afterwards
    I wouldn't necessarily characterise Bolt's claim as "a bit of running" and "a funny shape", but, yes, I absolutely agree that Zanardi should have won. His achievements this year have been the culmination of a story that has been constantly amazing me for years and years.

    I was on holiday, sitting on the pier in St. Ives (the land Vodafone forgot) trying to get a signal to check his result. When I finally saw that he'd won the gold medal, I'm not ashamed to say that I shed a tear. The man is my hero.
