Like us, Boris must be happy with Team GB's quest for glory in Beijing, where we are currently sitting rather pretty at 9th place in the medals table. (TOP TIP - Watch out for 'Super Saturday' coming up - there are a number of sports where Team GB are well-placed to win more medals, so we might sneak up the table a bit.)

Like us, we presume that Boris has also noted that London's olympic efforts appear to be centred on Wandsworth.

One thing we do know is that he's particularly proud of London's own Emma Pooley, the capital's first official Olympic medal winner, who won Britain's second cycling medal at the women’s time trial. He congratulated Emma for her "great personal achievement" which makes "all of us in London very proud".

With cycling a keen personal Mayoral interest, we hope to see Boris bombing around the Velodrome and the BMX circuit when it's built for 2012. But we're not sure he'd get a medal.
