Sport social media round up: Tan line fails & supermodels

This week’s sport social media round up includes a supermodel going above and beyond the call of friendship, two divers in very different coloured water than they’re used to (and with a large friend to boot) and a long jump competition in the mountains – you heard.

A wonderful moment in time, and yes, in case you missed it, GB won silver in 4x400m relay at World Championships!

Really boys? Really?

No pressure for the runner as she heads to the world champs!



We all have tan line fails but don’t think you’d be that bothered if you were running a marathon

Who wore them best? . . . #tanlines

So the guy who ran the brutal ultimate fighting champs has been hired by the world surf league? Yes, that’s right? Okay, just checking…



So a long jump competition takes place in the mountains. Righto.


Aw, Rafa.

I interviewed (and played against) England men’s netball nets captain – the Aussies are on it too.

Which supermodel goes well out of her way to visit her pregnant tennis playing friend? I’m not telling – just look below!

When she rides over 2.5 hrs each way just to have dinner to visit you. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️@KarlieKloss
