On Radio 4, doctor-turned-comedian Paul Sinha presented a one-off show about the Olympics, which serves as a sequel to his 2011 cricket programme, The Sinha Test.

In this half-hour, Sinha talks about his own obsession with the games and how he has collated so much Olympic trivia over the years, perhaps the most interesting being about the 1956 water polo match between the Soviet Union and Hungary, which took place when the former country was invading the latter country...

Then there's the story of the world's least known Olympic gold medallist from Team GB, Andy Archibald, a reserve member of the 1976 pentathlon team, who also just happened to by Sinha's House Master at school.

There's quite a bit of interesting material to this one, but I can't help but feel that this could've been a bit longer. If it was a full hour, like a normal live stand-up show, it might have been able to get through some of Sinha's funnier material. Still, it was decent half-hour show from the comedy doctor.
