Newspaper headlines: Golden memories from GB's Olympics success

With the Olympics over for another four years, many of the papers pay homage to Team GB in the form of souvenir specials and multi-page pullouts.

Such has been their success that the Times says Britain's Olympic chiefs have asked the prime minister to relax the quota on sporting honours to ensure that every British gold medal winner and key support staff are recognised for their achievements.

The Sun and the Daily Star both agree that Mo Farah is a "dead cert" for a knighthood.

A picture of him draped in the union flag - and leaping with joy - fills most of the Daily Mail's front page, along with the headline: "On top of the world!"

"Britain's Golden Age", declares the Daily Mirror.

What a bullion rush, says the Daily Telegraph - a heist on a scale that might have impressed that former Rio resident, Ronnie Biggs.

The Guardian bids farewell to Rio after what it calls "17 days of intoxicating sport".

A cartoon in the Daily Mail shows a man sitting in front of the TV, surrounded by pizza boxes and empty wine bottles and beer cans.

His wife tells a friend: "It's a personal best, he hasn't left his chair for three weeks."

Teenage anxiety surges

The lead story in the Times claims the number of middle-class teenage girls suffering from anxiety or depression has surged in the past decade, with more than a third experiencing symptoms of "psychological distress".

A government study involving 30,000 teenagers - seen by the paper - found that girls were more than twice as likely as boys to experience mental ill health.

The paper says some experts have blamed this on the proliferation of social media, which prevents young people from "switching off" from the pressures of school and made them more insecure.

The Daily Express reports that "Brexit doom-mongers" are increasingly admitting that Britain can boom outside the European Union.

It says that, judging from a survey of the financial industry, some of the most die-hard City pessimists appear to be eating their words as the economy shows no sign of the collapse many had forecast.

Such optimism is in stark contrast to a report in the Financial Times.

It says infrastructure spending has declined sharply since the vote to leave the EU, putting pressure on Prime Minister Theresa May to press ahead with pledges for new road, rail, energy, broadband and flood defence projects.

Wrong colour pens

As the Guardian points out, poor handwriting has long been the bane of teachers and exam markers.

Well, it seems that using the wrong colour pen could also be hampering students' grades.

The paper says that most exam scripts are now scanned and distributed electronically, before being marked onscreen using specialist software.

But examiners marking this year's A-levels have complained that their task has been made more difficult because many students have used blue or green pens, rather than black, as they are told to.

The Sun describes how a woman in America crashed a car within seconds of taking it for a test drive.

A picture shows the Mercedes Benz on its side after the motorist hit four parked vehicles on the dealership forecourt, including her own.

Police in Virginia think she accidentally slammed her foot on the accelerator, instead of the brake.

No-one was hurt.
