Take physic, pomp

Confirmed: The Rio Olympic Games have been a resounding success

Forget the cost, the unfinished infrastructure, the stifling heat and Zika, the queues and traffic and the organization problems, iffy ticket sales by IOC members, half-empty stadiums for marquee events, green diving pools or morally-challenged swimmers telling tall tales about locals. Ask any Brazilian and they’ll tell you it was all worth it because if you win the football gold, nothing else matters.
Nothing. At all. Congratulations, Brazil.
