Dane Ferwey FTW

Half-marathon runner hands his winner’s medal to a rival because of a routing mistake.

“I told him, ‘Not to worry, mate, I saw the bike take you the wrong way. And after doing the maths and calculating how much time you lost because of the mistake, it was clear to me that you would have hung on and won had this not happened.'”

The Mail Online gets seriously carried away with their retelling of the story, “. . . shocking mistake, drama afterwards, stunning gesture.” Maybe they could’ve shortened it to “Ferwey is a good dude.” On the other hand, I am “chuffed” whenever “chuffed” is used.
