He never needed to shift into top gear, cruising through his first round 5,000m heat with the minimum of effort.

It has been dubbed the Cuban Missile Crisis, with the kind of crass hyperbole that goes with the unreality of life on the international sporting beat. For the record, the future stability of the planet will not be affected by events in the Beijing National Stadium, the so-called Bird's Nest centrepiece of the 29th modern Olympic Games, on 21 August.
