    I just watched a lot of the triathlon mixed relay back as well. It was great! Though I did fast forward to the transitions for a lot of the legs.

    It was really noticeable how much the different athletes' strengths could affect the whole team's performances - but also how France performed some kind of team negative split to claw a medal from an unlikely position, and how much the Netherlands and Germany faded from a good start. The USA and GB were impressively consistent.

    These ones on Castle Lane in Westminster are all empty too. The developers apparently had approval from Westminster Council to renovate them but haven't yet - I think because they are designated as much-needed social housing but they're going to try to sit on the land till the value has increased even more then sell them.

    On Dames Road I think? I used to live just around the corner.

    It's got the potential to be an amazing house. But I assume the cost of a very nice house would be needed to make it so.

    There's a seriously neglected house on Wanstead Park Avenue, and another in Chingford on Forest View, that would be dream/nightmare renovation projects.

    That was impressive. Doesn't make me want to ride a mountain bike though, it looks horrible.

    I can't imagine him inciting feelings that strong in anyone.

    Cavendish will be gutted though, he must have thought it was all going to come together. Winning Green and equalling the record is an amazing achievement considering what he's been through but that won't be his attitude tonight I guess. Has he been interviewed? I had to go out as soon as the race finished.

    "I heard a noise" is hardly a smoking gun.

    Froome was five and a half minutes down in a discipline he used to be able to dominate.

    Is he going to bother next year? Is he going to have a contract?

    Is it a coincidence that his recent downturn in confidence and expectations started around the same time as the protests about the ethnic cleansing in Sheikh Jarrah, and the attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, or is it a subtle protest from Froome, undermining the attempted sportswashing of an Apartheid state?
