Justin Rose bagged gold to finally answer the question of whether golf should be an Olympic sport - well, if you happen to be British.
If the UK was full of sceptics a few days ago, now the country had turned into a nation of Olympic golf believers.

Brilliant from Justin Rose. Utterly unconvinced by golf as an Olympic sport but now we've won it I'm prepared to overlook it...

Delighted for Justin Rose. Wasn't convinced that golf should be in the Olympics, but he properly embraced it. Ace.

Should probably add, in fairness, that I wasn't totally convinced by the idea of golf in the Olympics. As usual, I was wrong!

Rose was involved in a tense showdown with Henrik Stenson in the final round, with the pair heading to the 18th level.
But the Swede bogeyed, leaving Rose with two puts to take the gold - and he only needed one.
He seemed pretty happy about it too.
And why wouldn't he be? He's the first man to win an Olympic gold medal in golf for 112 years.
His fellow pros were quick to congratulate him. Well, some of them - Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth appeared to have something better to do than tweet about the Olympics.

You can't help but wonder if a few pros watching on the telly were wishing they'd made a different decision when they had the chance to take part.
