Cam lords it over French
David Cameron has said that Britain's Olympic success is "driving the French mad".
The Prime Minister also told BBC Radio 2 that: "Britain is a country that can deliver, we may be small geographically but we can do great things."
Just over a week ago, Mr Cameron was forced to suffer a ribbing by the French president, François Hollande who jokingly thanked Britain for "rolling out the red carpet" for French athletes to win medals. But the tables have dramatically turned since then, with France now having only eight gold medals so far to Great Britain's 22.
Mr Cameron claimed that Britain's success in cycling in particular was a source of irritation to the French, adding that they were resorting to questioning the team's honesty.
Speaking this morning, he said: "It’s driving the French mad; they can’t bear it. Cycling – I was interviewed on French television yesterday and they virtually accused us of cheating. I think they found the union jacks on the Champs-Élysées a bit hard to take."
