Anyone watch on the beebs, press red button and watch Women's volley ball, team GB Vs World Champion Russia, and not doing badly at all. Lost 1st set so far, 4 to go.

I'm not sure that GB is going to be able to pull the break back in the cycling road race. I'll be so sad if they don't!

Hilarious tweet from Prince Charles (parody account)

Prince Charles ‏@Charles_HRH
Text from Prince Harry: "Having watched the opening ceremony again, I must say...I've seen better Bond girls".

Prince Charles ‏@Charles_HRH
Still no sign of Mr Bond. If anyone finds him, write "MI6" on his forehead and pop him in a taxi.


Prince Charles ‏@Charles_HRH
Panic over, Mr Bond's been found. Camilla had him tied to the bed. Must've thought he was an intruder.

It's going to take me a while to get over my disappointment that we aren't getting a sprint.

loving the huge crowds roadside- such a contrast to Beijing.

Yikes, poor Team GB, everyone expected this to be a slam-dunk for Cavendish... I can only imagine the snarking that's going to take place afterwards :scream:

WTF happened there? Poor Cav :fragile:

From what I saw is that they just didn't make the move in the peleton when they needed to, I think they thought that they would catch up and then they ran outta real estate.

There's absolutely nothing Cav could have done, so there'd better not be much snarking. Team GB did the best they could but they really messed up letting that break go away.

I plan to be grumpy and disappointed about this for a long time.
