New Zealand rugby sevens star Ruby Tui has gone viral after giving the ‘best sports interview ever’ at the Tokyo Olympic quarter-finals.
She said: “Yeah, the Russian’s are cool people man. They are a bl**dy tough, tough, team. They weren’t at the last Olympics, so this is huge for them. Massive congratulations to Russia.
“I know the score might have made it look easy but it was not easy. Don’t be fooled, [there was] lots of running. My GPS blew up…that’s how hard it was so respect to Russia!”
She added: “I love how GB come together. They all split up but for the Olympics, they come together.
“It’s funny because in the scrum when they go down they say ‘England’ but they can’t do it here so everyone has to go ‘GB’.
“Scotland have got a couple of really good players. Wales as well. [Jasmin] Joyce is bl**dy gas.
“I love the whole concept of Team GB and huge congratulations to Great Britain and all the people of that place because they fundraised, they worked hard, they campaigned. I think even a couple of us donated.”
