    A certain Alex Zanardi, ex CART, and WTCC driver is apparently in for Italy.

    There was quite a large fail on the BBC News this morning when the so called sports reporter thought that 'CART' meant that Zanardi had his near fatal accident whilst karting.

    I had to double-take to see what was wrong with that sentence...

    But yes, he has: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/disability-sport/19493510

    Sorry Team GB, don't give a toss who you did - full congrats to Zanardi in this one. Missed his first gold but intend to watch the others if they're on TV.

    Not ashamed to admit it, when I watch Zanardi's WTCC win at Oscherlaben I'm struggling to hold back man tears..

    I know he's not necessarily had to overcome a great deal more than many of the paralympic athletes... but I am really really pleased for him :D

    Urgh, I couldn't think of anything worse than a Coldplay and Rhianna concert. It was painful just to watch.

    Copy that, my girlfriend had it on so I chilled in the bedroom for the night. Nice seeing coverage of the parade, etc.
