Is this not what the Olympics are about? Uniting the people of nations that anywhere else in the world simply do not get along?

The image, posted on Twitter, shows American Jordan Burroughs with his arm around Iran’s Sadegh Saeed Goudarzi. The pair had just met in the 74kg freestyle wrestling final, which saw the USA claim another shiny gold medal.

Michael Moran called for the image to feature on every newspaper front page following the games.

While that may not be the reality come tomorrow in London, we certainly thought it was a picture that deserved to be shared; so we obliged.
