And then then they then they moved into doing the bit of dome sing much discussion about the dancing they did the mecca ach com. What is it courageous. That was jordan's idea was the macarena node had suggested that they will get up and move about. It's sort of turned into some sort of weird exercise video whether all just doing is a lovely it due time what. I didn't actually know what that was to answer the. Oh you've never walked rocky horror picture. Show i said that one that reference went over my and then we had jordan in beverley callard love in that continued as jordan confess that he used to watch beverly callard's workout videos vicariously probably imagined it. He was sort of as a child peeping over the sofa or seat. Say not watching. His mother were count to two counts workout videos. And i haven't text wendy north to see if she did. Have those those videos and would you like to know what the answer was. I would absolutely love to hear it. This is strength from the whole mouth. I mean that in the nicest possible way. Wendy she says yet do wendy's does voice. Is that fair. I mean jordan on your mom's voice once or twice in put gas. I'd suggest yes. Yes but the difference between the voice. I'm about to do and the voice. That jordan does a fine mother is that mine is startling league. Closer to reality than jordan's voice of my mother. I'm going to say. I mean. I disagree with that but we haven't got time get on with the text. Yes i did. Actually i go over zealous one day with my washing tumble dry and the workout. Kit was sent to ryan to do. Jesus epa exam with my leopard print leotard. And i had his skull shorts to work out with bev. Hey was notified. I wasn't best-placed pdf. Well this still rate. She did also add that. All of the north's are super proud of jordan. As i think everybody that we know is as well hashtag kept behind jordan. Everyone's involved say once loving the beverley callard dance routine with with loss of information about leotards and exactly where it got two in the charts which didn't really understand that bit jordan admitted that actually. He missed mo farris crowning moment. Perhaps the reason that mo- farrow is indeed on the program jordan as always completely this relieved. You just said the only reason that fires on the program. One of the most accessible athletes fulltime alec north that jordan. How how can you pick out so many stories about this random. He's a story forever conglomeration of celebrities. He's just pose out the back images. Super saturday i equally was teaching a residential course through who chinese and cheshire. So i missed it too. Which is why jordan and i are friends and i was pushing trolleys at tesco that night. I miss them. I miss the most of islam. I had no idea what was going on until i went home. Decided to treat myself to a chinese takeaway and on this tv on the cabinet was greg rutherford. I think one of the goals on super saying he was jumping for for gold as it turned out. So we've all got our own stories. We all didn't watch it but jordan's probably the best. Because he could actually tell about intrigue off off. He went taken with shane. Richie to do the viper volts and giovanni commented. That jordan is so full of fear. He was full of fear before we actually even left the confines of the camp and this when he started shake as anton deck explained the trial struggling to actually take in and understand the instructions. That is when i didn't know how to fail. I didn't know whether to think wow jordan. This is going to be the making if you to jordan. Be back on certain listens problems by the end of the week. I didn't quite know how to feel. I was conflicted yet. It was i mean. I don't think much conflicted. I was just really quite scared for him. At that point. I mean how did wonder is a chicken and egg situation whether the shaking was because he didn't understand the instructions all the other way round but is getting some attacks. My mom text me before the show started saying that she was worried for jordan. Seeing everything going on off say anton instagram stories. If you didn't say had said this was possibly the best trial from twenty series of the show which is saying something so. We're all just absolutely just enthralled waiting to see what what happened in those volts. Did you pick up the point where he was then talking to shane and an today and his voice started to go. I did that was what it was. It was hard join i. That's a very deep meaningful conversations over the years. But i've never actually heard his voice go where he's about to break down in tears and that was that was it was. It was a difficult. Watch as i as. I was for for a lot of his friendship circle as well he. He became paler and paler and to the point where. It's not often that between out of will the three of us. The jordan is the palest you are normally away suspiciously tend. I am normally three sheets nicer than death but not not. Tonight's jordan was casper. The friendly ghost is a great comparison. Yeah he was extremely pyo shaking beyond belief and like he wasn't going to start it. I think the the issue for jordan was the they said if one of you says Out of hidden explosively. I think that it was. Shane can get five. And i i will just saw. I can't do this because this is absolutely two of my worst fears. Maybe maybe that would have happened. I don't know i think jordan.

"Have enough dedicated bus lanes enough dedicated Olympic lanes and the dedicate Olympic lanes are going to cause congestion in the rest of London and it's GonNa rain for the whole two weeks, and it's cost about four hundred and eighty billion pounds, and that is going to deprive our services if. They need, etc, etc, and then it felt like during the opening ceremony, all of that ebbed away and it did you remember the story about Giles Coren, the the columnist for for the Times in the UK, he was covering the opening ceremony for the Times. And he'd always sort of pre written his opening. His opening paragraph and he was all set to be sniffy abouts it and sort of in the in the first ten minutes of the opening ceremony. He deleted the whole thing. And and rewrote is opening fessing up to the fact that he had. Pre, written, or had had preplanned the tone of his piece. And it all got thrown out the window and swept up like everybody else and I, feel like. I, feel like that sort of an iconic story and really indicative one if if London is experienced British people's experience at the London, Olympic? I remember my brother coming over for my Olympics Opening Ceremony Party Thinking, Oh, come 'cause as sausage rolls but. I'm not. I'm not getting wrapped up in. This is all. About attitude and he was waving the mini flags with the rest of us by the tonight. The thing is I think was. My sense was an I. Think we've paps forgotten this in hindsight. There was pressure based on how incredible the opening ceremony in the closing ceremonies wearing Beijing and there was there was a feeling I got. From the coverage that how on earth do we follow this water nurse? Can Can Britain come up with to follow that and then they did? In it and it was still very British. Very, it was absolutely spectacular, but it was still very. British. Say. We are ten minutes into the PODCAST and we've talked about is the opening ceremony. Say She is ten minutes per day if the Olympics. Is that what we've agreed yet, ten minutes per per event whichever you prefer the. Settling, you've got a comfy seat. Sheila with you through some of the Quirky and notable highlights from that wonderful four nights in July. If twenty twelve as I said, it's London became that night the first city to host the Games three times. It also hosted them in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eight, and nineteen, forty, eight. It was the most gender, equal. Olympics, ever with forty six percent of competitive being female. In. Ninety eight male competitors outnumbered females by well have a guest. In Nineteen Ninety, eight, what the ratio of male to female competitors have been. Photo. Matt. I reckon something somewhere between eighty and ninety percent men. Fifty, three to one. How Close. So. Yeah. That's progress. You saying bolts became the first man to retain both sprint titles. One hundred meters on the two hundred meters, and the Jamaican full by one hundred team became the first team to run under thirty seven seconds. Thirty, six, point, eight, four, they ran way Dan Shy Connie became the first Saudi Arabian woman to compete at the Olympics in the seventy, eight, kilo GD and Sarah Atoll became the first Saudi Arabian to run. to compete athletics, she competed in the eight hundred meters. Definitely. Remember that one Super Saturday. So Greg Rutherford Mo Farah, and Jess Ennis Hill who winning gold GB on the track. Tell me David. Tell me what that live. Would you believe. That's the day Martinez started working. MEANT TO A. Site vividly I've got. I've got in the house at this point. Six. Month old a two year old. And my wife and I are sitting in lounge which. Doesn't have a siphon it. s all or any chairs. So we're sitting on the floor surrounded by boxes. The only thing we'd unpacked was the TV. So that we could dial David so that we could watch super, Saturday and. We did. But it was kind of one of those where we worked flat out all day long, and we honestly we did not know really where we were up to in the picks at that point. I, and what sort of a night this was going to become and actually I. think that was that was pretty common wasn't to everybody knew that Jessica Ennis was in the middle of her her run to try to get goals. But Greg Rutherford came out of out of the blue as I. Recall, and then they just dropped one after another in Perth in imperfect timing so that The the mainstream audience could see all of it unfold one after another, and it was just incredible. It was one of the most uplifting. Evenings of sports I've ever seen in my wife was jumping up and down an. Amazing It was so so seep, it wasn't it? Really interesting what you're saying about the sequencing because I've always felt that with athletic. So there's actually quite I've always found it quite difficult to follow like where are they in each event like what's going on? What time? Where do I need to look that kind of thing, but they did such a good job of following the story on the coverage just unfolded. As you said, perfectly, one of my one of my absolute favorite images of all time is Greg Rutherford having just won the gold sharing on Mo. Farah? The final lap of his race I mean Greg Rather. Who before forty? Five minutes ago. Your average sports fan didn't know who he was other ahead of him. I'd never heard of him and suddenly he was Olympic champion, and then in that moment again, he was back to being the kind of the olden we block rooting for Farah. One of the stars of the Games we send this and. Yeah, it was just a sense of everything coming together in one evening and Britain. Adore ready had this incredible day and. Events and just the sort of gays foul on on the stadium in the evening and yeah, I. Mean. Just to to perfect hours and I remember. The. Sound as much as anything kind of this oral Mexican wave almost going round the stadium as as Mo Farah was finishing and yeah, it's just incredible. Incredible memories captured. So well, I think by by the coverage of it when I. Encounter People that were in that stadium that night. which I feel like I've done foresee will often in my life I, find it quite hard to be polite. because the jealousy is too much. I ready Adi my best sort of Oscar face. Best debate that.

S. and then calling in Hong Kong who is doing testing best and how is it working hi Sir in my opinion is not only testing that is important is also the isolation of cases of a con spread and probably even the most important thing is tracing the contacts we know that when we identify a person who is infected with call of it they may have already passed on infection so if we want to use testing to stop transmission we need to go that extra step I'm gonna be talking about that in a bit more detail at the moment but when you see the pictures of people queuing to have their temperature tested is not something that should be much more widespread there's a role to play but with temperature testing the devices that are used to not perfect sometimes people were taken to correct it medicine to to avoid showing up with a fever so it depends if people are willing to play along with those kind of devices with those kind of tests in Hong Kong were using it a lot I have a temperature check ten times the other day but I think it's the love boat to testing which is really really important and some of those tests take four days to come back some come back much more quickly who's doing it best in China they've got really well thought they massively expanded that testing capacity and will hand and also in some other cities now in factories in southern China to make iPhones the workers that are coming back to work now it will being tested regularly so they've really got enormous capacity to do these tests and that was always available within a few two hours every time Monson the key the picture in person has been patchy to say the least on testing despite big government promises the answer right so this is become a political issue in fact with the ministers being asked repeatedly about when they're going to hit their targets so wetness to me we were doing well under ten thousand today and then the secretary of state for health us set up a target for mid April of twenty five thousand per day well as of yesterday it was about fifteen thousand but a very ambitious target of about a hundred thousand a hundred thousand per day by the end of the month and I think there's a lot of skepticism about whether that target will be hit but there's also quite a bit of dark because the weather that's going to be enough you can manually the number of tests per day has become a familiar boast among politicians hasn't it yeah and I think again part of it is the number of tests but more importantly you need the right people tested and I think that I think it was well said testing the potential spreaders and then doing what's called contact tracing and using technology and more on movement through the cell phone is incredibly important and that's something we have to prioritize one key to getting as old as an advance again is likely to be a test for antibodies now if you're like me and you suffered at home for a week constantly coughing and desperately hoped it was coded nineteen that was the because you haven't been tested usually on a test for markers in your blood that proves that you seen off this disease could help determine whether you are an affected noon Dr Matthew Simms is director of infectious diseases research I've Beaumont health in Michigan in the US and he's been working on such a test we were able to quickly test people dead bodies and show that we had about a keeps the virus away we can start getting people back to work how accurate is the tests that you have now no we believe it's in the high nineties no no test is perfect you're always gonna have some false negatives you're always gonna have some false positives and it's a capacity many governments presiding over coronavirus hot spots are keen to have access to New York state governor Andrew Cuomo this week announced an executive order to fast track the process by executive order we're going to expand the number of people who are eligible to do the antibody test the antibody test tells you if the person had the virus and got over the virus that would be a prime person who could go back to work because they theoretically have an immunity to the virus for a period of time they're not sure what the period of time is there aren't a tremendously large number of people with the antibodies which is good news because we kept on the infection rate but that is an important task and we have to get that test the scale and this executive order will help do that Zeke can you imagine a time soon in which people carry around a certificate saying I've had the disease and I'm immune unless we have a very very cheap instantaneous tasks we will need something like immunity passports if not for nothing else than for travel you know many of your listeners will remember that they have to take around a card saying that they were immunized for yellow fever I'm going to fly to Britain or I'm gonna fly to Hong Kong again allow me into the country I have a pretty good sense that they're gonna say well show us that you are immune or we're gonna corn P. four you've got a vaccine or we're gonna quarantine you thought professor Ben cowling you con just assume that you are immune if you've had the disease there have been reports haven't done in parts of Asia of people becoming re infected yeah I think the antibody test that we've heard about especially the rapid test is not clear that they really indicate protection they do indicate perhaps that you've been infected but perhaps not yet able to show that you have immunity against reinfection so I think it's premature to talk about immunity possibles I'm a friends the the wall is a promise early on at least was talking early on of one of those finger **** tests that would be almost instantaneous to see if you have the disease that's going away hasn't it yes there were some tests were banned because they weren't accurate and not so it's it's not only important to have tested you should also have good test from very large risks with things also some holes negative and I think I need to think that very zero so to have this test and visual cues that will be included it is something that we can make this in the long term but I think it would be very interesting it's going on to do this as I want to test an example of the population so that we can see where we are in this it on the curb and whether we could expect that we would just this hurting you understand within the population and right now we know that we're only detecting the tip of the iceberg and it's very important for us to know how your arches the arches burgers in the meantime Marcy McKee is it a toll reasonable to assume that you have some immunity if you think you've had this disease and and and to wonder around with a bit more confidence no I don't think it is I have a lot of reservations about the idea that the community passport I think it's very different from the situation with yellow fever where you can require people to be vaccinated if they want to go somewhere on the risk of any side effects are are minimal but not only we are ready creating a strong incentive for people to go watching gets infected knowing that no matter what age they are there certain potentially well they are in fact increasing the risk of severe illness or even death I think another issue that we need to take a control is not the the opportunities for frogs in this are using country for documents this sort of thing might work in a society where you have very complex identification systems without links to individual identity numbers and so on but I think to do this on a global scale is going to be quite challenging now if you really want to make sure that you isolate those most likely to have come into contact with the virus a painstaking and time consuming process known as tracing is required there aren't too many short cuts lots of people need to question lots of people on what exactly they did and where they went on certain days when they might have been infectious his doctor Greg Rutherford from the university of California in San Francisco and with respiratory diseases like this is that

It is impressive and it's great and i'm glad that those people comet improves. If you like the speed for everybody else and i'm into that but i do worry a bit because i think when it becomes competitive take it deters a huge sway the whole group of people the community to come just to be there to run well. That's the idea of it because we had pulled. Sinton hewitt on run poured would actually his episode. If you haven't listened echo 'cause it's really interesting and he is adamant. He reminds everyone continuously. It is not a race. It's about the community coming coming together and enjoying running for you. If you're competitive with yourself and you wanna go for yourself oh but actually there are people that walk at the back with a hoop of one day breaking into a joke right and it's for them as without the thing and they're an i deny i i wonder when you are that person that's going to be brave and crazy enough to start and stop beginning the really challenging process of i suppose changing your life and curator no day changing being the habits that you have a making running part of your life if you show up to a park crown and everybody feels like they're an athlete <hes> you know that can really deter people and you know i it's really important that when people come to power on that you remember those people and delighting and really shed joy for the fact they've they've common like you say it will improve. We'll get better well. Maybe maybe there should be some something that the speedy runners don't always rush often they what they do is they go at the back and they have to run with the new runners or ten of our walk with them. Maybe there should be something in that. I think that's not a bad idea. Actually the kelly holmes does not that's amazing. You know it's it's interesting. I had a very close friend is such an amazing person and you know she finished a park run and and she was in tears at the alleged because of that she complete four laps. Only it was amazing. I shouldn't don exercise long period of time the hardworking person and in i was thrilled for her but she just felt you know that she'd finish last rather than the i got up and finished first because should show up you know but but she's runner. That's what i love about the running community mini star. You're in an everyone a new matter whether you are someone. That's the front be in smashing it. You will have is enthusiastic. A conversation vote running as the person who has just started because suddenly and leave a common ground have an ear. 'cause you having this sort of delightful experience.

This is cheer at so we coz on holiday and my ipod got stuck on <hes> bucks. Fizz is making your mind that just repeats right in san sebastian or just running on the friday thing about five months but it's it's brilliant line in a car remembered. It'll come back to me something about running. It seems like perfect you know <hes>. I wish i could remember the line currently imprinted in my thoughts. Are we used to do <hes>. Human rights cases lump sure that being forced to listen to bucks on a loop is a human rights of bought thought they song <hes>. You've gotta run for you. What every war <hes> anyway. I this the quickest around ever generally sometimes. If you make a really good playlist do you ever run with music so i want ice around with eb. Mr bright side the killers on repeat and i try and get my fastest five k ben shepard might have this thing is call him to work with him. See he's a bit of a machine. I know he's working yeah so he we have this thing is the fulton are five k. Challenge and you have to get what we used to say under twenty minutes. He isn't under twenty minutes for five year. We under twenty's threat is just your fastest five k and i used to put one song on mr bright side on repeat and i would listen to it four times and then i'd be finished. That's the way yeah that's exactly right. I couldn't remember the words to the songs all about that. No it's not about eight some somehow. Your body gets connected to the rhythm right yeah i. I'm not sure actually i wanted this. I wonder whether a music mexico faster or is better or worse. I changed my mind mind all the time. I'm the first thing i did in london. I had my little not had my music on the whole time. I can't tell you what i listen to the three twelve. One the second one as i started running the thing broke i mean in your head. That says over roy was furious but actually i mean it was it was it was fine and actually i started listening to my breath and the things around me and it was sort of okay you know there are days when you're on and you want the music especially if the view is delightful and there are some especially i think in some of the country rotten's where it's just nice to have the sound sound of nature all the what has happening birds. That sort of thing just is happening. They want to be present in the environment in the <hes> but i it's i the difficult while i'm not sure whether it's going but as this bucks fizz absolutely my fastest five k by mall was listening to that on a leap i was going insane. They have that run up way. The woman says hugh six minutes and thirty four second that wa. I've tried to change voice to make a sound liverpudlian. Oh okay. I don't know why you're she sounds like what's the name cereal yeah. That's the problem that you don't wanna you want to hear someone chat code you get or i want someone a bit brutal. Okay another murtaugh hurry up. Amanda holden and i were discussing this and <hes> we're thinking it would be a good thing to do. There's definitely a market there where we will come on. Let's keep going off so you're running running along the eupol pop right and you could give them some motivational speakers who good idea <hes> you know what i say. I listen on that particular app. Let's see what my average malls and then of course the next bit of bucks fizz come on and i stopped pushing this earth again. See a lot of you've got to speed it up and then you gotta slow it down into the slowdown bid just like turn off air that let's see a lot of people will listen listen to report and i knew this because i've been overwhelmed by lutes messages choose on instagram and on twitter and his lovely to hear but they find actually listening to other people you chats up by what keeps you going highly motivating and actually so if they're running they might be thinking stole paying but hearing you talk about what keeps you going propels you forward as she meets. Keep going as well so it's been really. It's been really enlightening there all days and if you feel this. They're all days where you have tara yeah when you can't disappear. Do you know what i mean. Yeah and i've had those days. You know you do your sort of usual meow. How's your usual london route and it's just been painful. I haven't been able to escape from ourselves but those days are always wiped out by the days. When it's working you remember the good days you kind of gloss over the bad ones but i think <hes> you always remember how you feel at the end of good day and it makes all worthwhile so does and now i can't have you here today and not have a little bit of fun with you. I've come up with this little. It's kind of like a little game. I feel that we should take advance to the fat. We've got there's some from the legal system in the room so perhaps address some important issues there at your <hes> your the man definitely to speak to when it comes to this. We're gonna talk about crimes against running okay. I hope you're so into this. I've got such views about it. Because there's a little discussion for instance for instance you know has been a whole summer so okay for men to run topless and britain. Oh that's such an interesting one <hes> now of course the you know the the vologda okay judgmental part of me. I must say something which people think but aunt allowed to say what is it depends what you look overseas man. Yes if you're a scaffold that speak spruced. I excuse me speaks french. Speaks proust's speaks french. Not only should you run topless but you should call me but no i think <hes> hytner <hes> i. It doesn't bother me a tool. <hes> okay and bother me whether anybody was topless seems to me. I think the problem is that there isn't piracy. That's the thing you know my complaint about that would be well if men can run topless boycott women painful go to be honest. I wouldn't be able to step down there. They need to work anita good sports prawn that topless would just be uncomfortable of guts from me for my i i of course. I was a little girl for this big discussion. Yeah obviously not one that i can same man. Though do you need some support more well. I mean i just did my new program with jeremy paxman axeman last night and all i can tell you is we had a big discussion about that abakar discussion. I suspect he needs something to keep things going. I've always wanted for christie's lunch box. You mean yea is that if the it has to be held down otherwise would it give you the that women get with new sports bras. We'll happily in my case. It's not a problem. We'll happily really embarrassingly. Not not really autism must be some people that run but maybe that sort of helps them a bit like a helicopter very great friend of greg rutherford. Yeah i'm not i'll say anything about him but there's a reason why go that extra links and the only jump well greg. I'm going to look at unit different light from noah and okay. Here's another question for you and like i'm sorry here's another question for you. Try to work. I wish brought to go okay. Here's another one's go for an eye okay so if you've been running and you're really sweaty that way you get. You've been to barry's clashes. Still sweating for our are afterwards. Is it acceptable to get on public. Transport is busy. There's a lot of people commute and there you are single swept off where it's farming. Listen you know tell yourself down. People get sweaty. All of course it is yeah. It's fine. People do way worse things on public transport. I mean there are all all sorts of antisocial behaviors..
