BBC are keeping their viewers up to date with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games with their early morning programme Olympic Breakfast. The show is hosted by Dan Walker and hockey gold medallist Sam Quek. On Saturday morning, the presenting duo gave viewers an update on how Team GB has been performing at the sporting event. However, Dan couldn’t help but mock the medal board they were using to keep track of the wins.
The presenting pair updated Olympic Breakfast viewers on four new medal wins for Team GB at the games.
However, Dan took the opportunity to poke fun at the BBC’s “low tech” medal board which he named “the Japan-easel”.
Excitedly teasing ahead to the medal update, Sam remarked: “Dan, more medals today means one thing.”
“Is it time?” Dan asked, with Sam replying: “It’s time and it’s my turn as well. Yes!”

Continuing with the medal update, Sam said: “Another bronze medal which we not long ago saw and that was in the windsurfing.
“Emma Wilson a huge congratulations to her and what a fantastic interview she did afterwards so emotional and so proud. So, huge congratulations to her,” she commented.
“22 years old,” Dan said, commenting on the athlete’s age, with Sam adding: “22 years young!”
“Come on team, let’s get a bit more shouting in here. Come on,” Dan said, encouraging the production team in the studio to cheer.
Moving on to the next achievement for Team GB, Sam told viewers: “Mixed triathlon, this was the first time it was in the Olympics.
“Of course Team GB took the very first Olympic gold medal in that, so big round of applause please,” the presenter said.
“Yeah!” Dan shouted, leading the studio in a cheer for the success of the Olympians.
Sam named the team members as she stuck a photo of them to the medal board: “Jess Learmonth, Jonny Brownlee, Georgia Taylor-Brown and Alex Yee.”
“Again another brand new event in swimming, the mixed medley which was a fantastic race. It was so exciting. We got a gold there,” she revealed.
“Huge congratulations to Kathleen Dawson, Adam Peaty, James Guy and Anna Hopkin and of course we can’t forget Freya Anderson who was part of that semi-final race as well.
“Big applause, big applause, big applause!” Sam remarked.
Olympics Breakfast airs weekdays from 5am to 9am on BBC One.
