Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday!

This weekend saw the XXXI Olympiad kick off in Rio Di Janeiro, with a spectacular opening ceremony.

Or, at least, I hear it was spectacular. Being on the other side of the world (though in the same hemisphere for once), I managed to miss most of the live telecast; but, I did catch the parade of nations — and Tongan flagbearer Pita Nikolas Taufatofua, who has taken the internet by storm. Seeing the Olympic Refugee Team enter the stadium to a massive cheer from the Rio crowd was also a highlight.

Readers, what were your favourite moments from this opening ceremony?
