I'm going to miss the Olympics. Once they're finished the usual grimy stuff will climb back to the top of the news agenda. Syria (we're backing the horrible rebels against the horrible government because we've seen the way the wind is blowing) Mitt Romney (that disgusting man) the tribulations of our dreary Coalition, Premiership football (groan).
Two Kenyans and a Ugandan are leading the pack. The sun is shining on London.
