Looking at the photos of SG bearing the Olympic torch at Manchester made me one very happy and proud fan!
He looked so cool running with his bright yellow nike sneakers. Chance that I love yellow nowadays. ^^
I read somewhere that torchbearers were supposed to be an ex-olympian or a popular figure of the hosting country. In this case, he is neither. But who cares. Samsung is a major sponsor of the Olympics and they chose him as the representative.
He really is very popular everywhere. Even in Poland where he stopped by first to watch a soccer game, fans flocked in the airport to welcome him. And mind you, not korean ones but europeans! Hope he had a lovely stay in europe.
Can’t wait to see him again in singapore!
