Mo Farah and Team GB’s incredible gold rush at Rio 2016 seems to have made everyone a little bit giddy.
The 10,000m and 5,000m champion raced home to secure the ‘double double’ and retain the titles he won in London 2012. Now, this is the face of a champion.

But look closer at the other faces in the picture – because it tells you a lot about just how special this Games has been for Team GB.

Even Farah’s fellow athletes are going just a little bit crazy for him. I mean, US gymnast Simone Biles has four gold medals and a bronze.

And when a huge Hollywood star shares a rubbish selfie he snatched with you on a night out, you know you’ve made it.

As for the rest of us? Well, we’ll calm down eventually – perhaps after we’ve had some sleep…
I love Mo Farah. Possibly more than crisps. If it were up to me, I’d put his image on a bank note.
