Great Britain's Olympic poster-girl, heptathlete Jessica Ennis, grabbed most of the front pages this morning by displaying her tautly lickable tummy in the new Great Britain Olympic uniform launch yesterday. You'd never know that there were another 29 athletes at the launch, modelling the new Adidas uniforms, given Jessica's ubiquity in the newspapers today. Even Triple P favourite Victoria Pendleton couldn't compete with Jessica's awesome abdominals.
There has been some controversy about the designs, by Paul McCartney's daughter Stella, as they have been said to be too blue with not enough emphasis on the red in the Union flag on which the designs were based. Given English sensitivities about the Scots intentions to leave the Union (they tell us) it has been said that the blue and white is "too Scottish".
Actually, we think McCartney has done an excellent job; the distinctive elements of the flag are still there and, furthermore, the design would be too busy if the red flag elements were actually in red. Whatever, nothing can distract from Miss Ennis's lovely tummy!
