British Newspaper Celebrating British Gold Accidentally Puts Dutch Team On Front Page

Another huge day for the Brits at the Olympics. They're up to 22 gold medals, their biggest haul since they hosted the games in 1908.

The Daily Express, the self-proclaimed "world's greatest newspaper" (actually a shitty tabloid), put a few of today's champions on tomorrow's front page. From left to right that's triathlete Alistair Brownlee, cyclist Laura Trott, and...hrm. The Netherlands dressage team, who took bronze. Look, here they are again, in a Dutch newspaper where they belong!


For our British readers, here's a lovely AP photo of your actual world champion dressage team, distinguishable by their actual gold medals. It must've been the silly hats that threw off the Express editors.
