I’ve just walked from my house in Tokyo to my favourite cafe, and I’m pouring with sweat. Was going to ride my bike but the saddle was so hot threatened to burn a hole in an embarrassing part of my trousers.
According to the thermometer, it’s a cool 36.5 degrees. Frankly any athlete doing any kind of running around today deserves three or four gold medals, in my book. Many thanks for the coverage, doing a grand job of distracting me from work!
