I am delighted to be able to report that Modican fencer Giorgio Avola, who went to London as a reserve for Italy's male foil team, got his chance to participate yesterday and did his town, and his country, proud when the team won gold.

"To wake up, switch on the iPhone and realise it wasn't just a wonderful dream", wrote Giorgio on twitter this morning. What a homecoming his will be!

Tante congratulazioni, Giorgio, da un'inglese di Modica.

Hi, Dragonstar and WW. Yes, fantastic. Sorry - I was sure I had replied before.
Hi, Liz. Yes, it's given everyone a lift here.
