Daily Express puts the Dutch dressage team on the front page [Updated]

Oh dear.

The Daily Express celebrates Britain's record haul of gold medals, putting yesterday's four medallists on the cover: Alistair Brownlee, Laura Trott and Chris Hoy. But who's that representing the dressage? Why, it's Adelinde Cornelissen, Edward Gal and Anky van Grunsven of the Dutch team, with their orange colouring and bronze medals delightfully on show.

Oh dear, Daily Express. Oh dear.

Update:

Double oh dear. The Mirror made the same mistake as well - twice:

It seems likely that the blame lies at least partially with a mis-captioned tag from a photo agency.

The NS Podcast #150: Englishness, X-men and Equality

The New Statesman podcast.

This week, Helen and Stephen try their best not to talk about the EU. Instead they turn to Boris Johnson’s media strategy, MP’s expenses, and Labour and the idea of Englishness. They go down-the-line to the Lobby with George Eaton. Then Henry Zeffman joins to discuss the politics of the new X-men movie. You also ask us: what does the future hold for the Women’s Equality Party? (Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush, George Eaton, Henry Zeffman)
