Here at 4YE there are a few of us who just can’t get enough of the action – it’s a little sad how little time we spend not watching the Olympics if we’re being honest – and wanted to share with you some of the best moments from the games so far.

It has only been a week and there have already been some absolutely incredible moments so let’s get right on with the list shall we:
