It's actually great to see athletes using the Tube in the first place, but to see one proudly posing with their medal was a delight. I'm not sure who originally took this photo of Venezuelan fencing champion, Ruben Limardo but comedian Omid Djalili Tweeted it yesterday afternoon & it went around Twittersphere like wildfire.
A Tube commuter said to The Mirror: "It was just amazing. This guy came on the train with a gold medal round his neck. I asked him about it and he just shrugged and said ‘I’m a fencer from Venezuela.’ He posed for pictures and signed autographs and then got off. Absolutely surreal.”
