Andy Murray to fly the flag for Team GB apparently. Not officially though.

Good choice, can't really begrudge him, but Murray gets so much attention the rest of the year. Would've preferred Nicola Adams personally. About time we had a woman again and she's a bit of a pioneer being the first Olympic champion in her sport.
