Daily Express produces 22 carat crap front page: mistakes Dutch dressage team for British

by | 8th, August 2012

THE Daily Express has made a decent fist of producing the worst front-page ever. Having hailed 22 carats as the benchmark of golden excellence at London 2012, the paper puts the tin lid on its Olympians wrongness by saluting Team GB gold medallists Alistair Brownlee (triathlon), Laura Trott and Chris Hoy (both cycling). And hats off to Adelinde Cornelissen, Edward Gal and Anky van Grunsven of the bronze medal winning Dutch team.
