Rio Olympics 2016: Theresa Mays message

Prime Minister Theresa May said:

On behalf of the whole country I want to wish Team GB every success for this summers Olympic Games in Rio.

Four years ago you won more medals than countries 10 times our size.

Your sheer hard work, your courage and character inspired our nation and brought our United Kingdom together with a wonderful sense of pride.

I know that you will do so again.

And although you will not see the same crowds cheering you on in Rio, I want you to know that those same crowds will be there in spirit.

The whole nation will be behind you, watching on our televisions and backing you all the way.

English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish all together with 1 flag, singing 1 anthem and supporting 1 team. Our team. Team GB.

So Good Luck in Rio and I say to the whole country, lets Bring on the Great this summer.
