France agonises over Team GB glory


France agonises over Team GB glory

The French are perfectly happy with their Rio Olympics tally. The haul of 42 medals, including 10 golds, was a post-war record, and their seventh overall placing was the same as at London 2012.

That is the official line.

In fact, there is an unacknowledged undercurrent of grumbling. It is a reaction born of envy, self-doubt - and historic rivalry with the island neighbour to the north.

For the French, doing satisfactorily at the Olympics is all very well. But being so roundly beaten by the Brits - that is another matter entirely.
