    Martin Fourcade, the best biathlete in history along with Ole Einar Bjørndalen, the man with seven consecutive victories in the World Cup general ranking, 31 Crystal Globes and 25 World Championship medals, is also the French athlete with the most Olympic titles, with five victories. In PyeongChang, he went through it all: serving as a flag-bearer, winning three gold medals and suffering two huge disappointments.

At the Munich 1972 Games the swimmer won seven gold medals in a scarcely believable seven world-record times. According to the man himself, his legendary performances were not wholly unexpected, goggles are over-rated, and the moustache was key.

    Snapped: reflections and revelations on Comaneci’s perfect 10

    The sight of the 1.5m 14-year-old gymnast Nadia Comaneci standing next to a digital scoreboard showing a mark of 1.00 at the Olympic Games Montreal 1976 is one of the most instantly recognisable sporting images of all time. The watching world quickly realised what it had witnessed: the first perfect routine by a gymnast in Olympic history. For the Romanian, it took a little longer to register.
