National hero

The Olympian got a personal best
and took home the gold
in her home town.

The crowd cheered for her,
Clare Balding high-fived her
and Colin Jackson wept.

As her proud husband took her out for her favourite meal,
several hundred people tweeted her death threats
and called her a bloke.
