Remember how great the last Olympics were? When we all discovered Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah, Tom Daley and many other sportspeople who ran against the grain of overpaid prima donnas?

Well guess what? They're back! (The Olympics, not the prima donnas. They never went away.)

We're just 100 days from the start of the 2016 Rio Olympics, and to mark the occasion Team GB have gathered in London to show off their brand new Stella McCartney-designed clobber. The kit has been being worked on for the last two years - and we're sure you'll agree it certainly looks like it. The only accessory it's missing? A few gold medals.

    Here's some more of Team GB, including professional wheelchair tennis player Gordon Reid who we can only assume is thinking about what very, very small pants they are. No one look at the pants. Just look DIRECTLY forward.

    The blurb from Adidas says: "The full front zipper allows for easy, variable temperature regulation." Revolutionary indeed. We'd like to see more clothing adopt this innovation.

    It's the understated, subtle branding here that shows you why they had to spend two years working on these designs.
