The Twittersphere reacts to Sunday’s developments at the London 2012 Games, with rain, medals and Paula Radcliffe’s marathon withdrawal all on the agenda.
 

On super Lizzie Armistead's brave silver

@tanyaarnold Team GB's first medal is made in Yorkshire. Brilliant from Lizzie Armitstead

Andrew, Lerwick, Scotland (Yahoo Message Boards) Very well done to Elizabeth Armitstead; a fantastic ride in appalling conditions.

R, London, England (Yahoo Message Boards) Well done Elizabeth! The honour of winning GB's first medal of the games goes to you!

@moz_dee A new sporting hero. Lizzie Armitstead. What a race. #London2012

@DavidMunroWise @L_ArmiTstead Absolutely brilliant performance Lizzie. Inspirational to everyone in team GB. You are up there with the very very best.

On the heavy rain affecting outdoor events in London

@Writer_LovinIt Lizzie Armitstead is from Yorkshire. Rain doesn't bother her. #olympics

@KTStop22 Nice to see all of the people cheering on the cyclists even in the pouring rain. #Olympics

@MalloryOnTravel Quite a contrast between the cycling route in #London2012 with heavy rain & the sailing venue at sunny Weymouth #Olympics

On the heartbreaking news that Paula Radcliffe will miss next weekend's marathon

@tomguise awwhh absolutely gutted for Paula Radcliffe! Her record will still stand though. #untouchable #london2012

@Susie_Comben Such a shame to hear Paula Radcliffe won't be running the marathon. "Best athlete never to win an Olympic medal" #Olympics

‏@donkhill3 Heartbreaking news for Paula Radcliffe - all the hard work & dedication & still miss the Olympics in her own country #comebackstronger

On Andy Murray's straightforward Sunday victory in the Olympic tennis at Wimbledon

@JoeBroome Good start for Andy Murray, comfortable win and didn't have his brother holding him back this time!

‏@DuncanSRamsey Andy Murray is through. First round never is much of a challenge really. Onward! #TeamGB

‏@HollyW87 C'mon Andy! RT @5livetennis: Excellent performance from Murray.. a medal favourite and, on this evidence, a definite contender for the gold!

On the beach volleyball

‏@MarcusPowell Women's beach volleyball is by far the best sport in the olympics. I love their... Sunglasses.

‏@Pundamentalism To make the most of our home team advantage, the Beach Volleyball court should be covered with pebbles, seaweed, and empty beer cans.

@domisatwit Anyone else thoroughly addicted to the Olympics already? Hooked on the beach volleyball, swimming, boxing, archery, tennis and gymnastics!

On the Equestrian events at Greenwich Park

‏@darryl1974 Just having a a peek at the equestrian event from Greenwich Park. My manor is looking splendid on the telly. #london2012

@tonyfrangiosa Equestrian is not an #Olympic sport. The horse does all the work!

‏@erikianlarsen 71-year-old Japanese dressage rider is the oldest #Olympics competitor in nearly a century. Amazing story.
