When I began writing this column, one of my first topics of discussion was the Olympics and how I sat in my car, in traffic, yelling and cheering as Sir Chris Hoy won yet another cycling gold medal.
I loved it, but I was prepared to be disappointed with the Winter Olympics in Sochi, not least because of, as I wrote last week, the background of human rights issues in Russia.
However, the feeling of wishing Team GB to do well is still strong. But there’s something new: I find myself urging people on from other countries.
Take Justyna Kowalczyk, who won gold in the ladies’ classic cross-country skiing with a fractured foot.
Get behind your country, but praise the tenacity and bravery of everybody.
