The links below are top for boosting the spirits – sort of winter mind warmers. They feature Olympians and one of Britain’s skinniest, and more interestingly designed entertainers. And there’s Matt.
Please give them a try.
* The dancing second 2012 gold for Dujardin and her horse Valegro (three beautiful minutes);
* Mo Farah’s second gold of the 2012 Olympics (around two and a half minutes – half anxiety/half celebration);
* Eric Idle’s take on stuff that happens (about five minutes and worth every second);
* the Matt cartoon for showjumping gold (two seconds).
