But there are a few Doubting Thomases out there who think Team GB's golden haul is simply too good to be true. That’s why The Daily Slap decided to investigate some of the conspiracy theories circulating the world wide web about 'Super Saturday'.
Conspiracy No.1: It was all a dream
Lazarus Thumb from the Department Investigating Countries with a Knack for Sports (DICKS) said, "I've studied the data and analysed the raw footage and concluded that yesterday was actually a dream. Someone - probably France - has somehow invaded our dreams and made us all believe yesterday was the greatest moment in Team GB's history whereas in actual fact, while we were sleeping, France won everything."
Conspiracy No.2: Yesterday was a false start
He's not the only one finding Team GB's success hard to swallow. Icarus Chest from the Society of Law in Media Events (SLIME) revealed that he's been contacted by a number of countries eager to hire top lawyers who can find any legal technicality that would mean all of yesterday's results are null and void.
"If we can just prove that the Olympic Village has the wrong kind of toilet paper - that one that's like tracing paper, for example - we'd be able to argue that the whole of yesterday was effectively a false start and they'd have to re-run all of yesterday's events again. We have 'til midday to log an official complaint so as soon as the Hollyoaks omnibus ends, I'll get right on it."
Conspiracy No.3: Yesterday was part of the opening ceremony
There are fears from some quarters that the Games haven’t actually started yet and everything we’ve witnessed so far is actually part of Danny Boyle’s feel-good Opening Ceremony. Speaking on Twitter, Kevin Spine from Belarus poured fuel on these flames with this insightful tweet: “Sir Macca was at the opening ceremony and he was there again last night. Dave Cameron was at the opening ceremony and he was there again last night. You do the math.”
“We’ve just done the math,” said Professor Harold Jaw from the Society of Hairdressers Investigating the Truth (SHIT) when The Daily Slap asked him to analyse these conspiracies, “and you’re all wrong. You loons.”
