London Mayor Boris Johnson may have had his issues with zip-lines today, but Team GB rallied through this tragedy to win their group, defeating Uruguay 1-0 on the strength of a Daniel Sturridge goal in the 46th minute.

In more shocking news, defending World Cup and two-time Euro Cup champion Spain exited the Olympics without a victory. Spain failed to score a single goal in a tournament that many expected them to win outright.

Instead the Spanish will head home early, as Team GB, Senegal, Mexico, South Korea, Brazil, Egypt, Japan, and Honduras advance on to the quarterfinals. 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Host Brazil is now widely considered to be the favorite.

Another Athlete Expelled From Olympics For Racist Tweet

- -

This has been the first Olympic Games where social media has been a prominent presence. So naturally the best way to take advantage of this is to put your horrible racism on display for the world.

Swiss footballer Michel Morganella was expelled from the Olympic Games today after referring to the South Korean squad that had just defeated his team as "a bunch of mongoloids" on Twitter.

Morganella's coach was appropriately outraged:

"He discriminated, insulted and violated the dignity of the South Korean football team and people."

But don't worry, because according to Fifa president Sepp Blatter, "there's no racism in football."

Sure their sexy quotient is at an all time low without David Beckham on the squad, but that didn't stop them from dominating today as they dispatched the United Arab Emirates 3-1.

Ryan Giggs, Scott Sinclair, and Daniel Sturridge all scored for Team GB, who were in control almost every minute of the match. With the win, the British can now hold off the deep chasm of despair that seems to follow their national team everywhere they go.

Next they'll need at least a tie in their upcoming match against Uruguay to advance to the quarterfinals.
