HeraldScotland has been following the chat on the social media platform throughout the Games, and looks back at some of our favourite Tweets, by and about Team GB’s Scottish stars.
On Chris Hoy (gold medallist, cycling: men’s keirin & gold medallist, cycling: team sprint)
@chrishoy: Ok folks, that's me off twitter until after racing tomorrow, thanks for all the good luck messages!
A few minutes later...
@chrishoy: I know I said I was off twitter til after 2mro but that was PHENOMENAL by Jason Kenny. So happy and proud of him, well deserved mate.
@johnbishop100 (comedian John Bishop): Chris Hoy - deserves a Gold for excitement. I am going to drink some sangria to calm down -I am knackered but its not about me its the team!
@frankieboyle (comedian): Chris Hoy's success comes from the fact that if he slows down at all in Scotland his bike gets stolen
@GaryTank (comedian Greg McHugh): @chrishoy Yir brilliant oan that Gillette advert! Congratulations!
On Andy Murray (gold medallist, tennis: men’s singles, silver medallist, tennis: mixed doubles)
@greghemphill69 (actor/comedian Greg Hemphill) : Andy Murray. Let’s do this, you wee diamond. Revenge is a dish best served at 138 miles per hour.
@frankieboyle: I think we can see the benefits of my coaching sessions with Murray, where i have been telling him to pretend that the ball is English.
@RafaelNadal: Congrats to @andy_murray, Roger and @delpotrojuan. Especially to Andy, I can imagine the joy of doing at home.
@SamuelLJackson: Congrats to Andy Murray for taking that GOLD! Brits getting’ their G Jerreson on! Movin’ On Up!
@jamie_murray (tennis player, Andy’s brother): Massive congratulations to Andy. All the perseverance and hard work pays off today with an Olympic gold medal. Truly Deserved!
@maggiemay_hem (Twitter account for Andy Murray’s border terriers Maggie May and Rusty): Here we go folks... Just checking to make sure Rusty definitely has the silver, obviously. ( picture posted of dogs wearing tennis medals, see above)
@willcarling (former England rugby captain): David Cameron has just congratulated Britain’s Andy Murray on his Olympic Gold, he also commiserated Scotland’s Andy Murray on his Silver.
@ringostarrmusic (Beatle Ringo Starr): Congratulations Andy Murray gold gold gold peace and love R ***
On Katherine Grainger (gold medallist, rowing: women’s double skulls)
@LouiseMensch (MP): Master’s Degree in medicine. PhD in Homicide. Olympic Gold at 36. Don’t Mess with Katherine Grainger #TeamGB
@GaryLineker: The most deserving gold of the games. After 3 silvers in last 3 Olympics Katherine Grainger has done it with Anna Watkins.
On Tim Baillie (gold medallist, canoeing: men’s slalom double)
@SpandauBallet (80s pop icons): GOLD! Tim Baillie, Etienne Stott and Peter Wilson...”You’re indestructible!”
@TimBaillie: “Thank you for letting me focus on Winning,” National Lottery players, we are your athletes, this is your Medal!
A few minutes later...
@TimBaillie: but I think it’s probably best if I look after it for safe keeping, cheers for your support!
On Heather Stanning (gold medallist, rowing: women’s pair)
@theJeremyVine (radio presenter): Heather Stanning, who just won gold, will serve in Afghanistan later this year. Few high profile footballers – take note.
@Benfogle (TV presenter): Massive congratulations to Helen Glover and Heather Stanning for their inspirational gold medal proudly sporting a Help for Heroes band.
On Scott Brash (gold medallist, equestrian showjumping team)
@Sekou_SmithNBA: Team GBs Scott Brash on showjumping gold: “I really hope this win improves my pulling power with the women, if I’m honest! That’s about it.”
And other Scottish highlights from elsewhere in the Twittersphere...
@reallorraine (Lorraine Kelly, TV presenter): I always worry about the steeplechasters – running with damp feet after splashing through the water can’t be very comfy!
@davidflorence (silver medallist, canoeing: men’s slalom double): Just had the entire Olympic Athletics Stadium sing me Happy Birthday. Thank you all!
@mj88live (silver medallist, swimming: breast stroke, men’s 200m breaststroke) : “@kevinbridges86 @mj88live Any tips on getting water out of my ear mate?” get a wee cotton bud in there pal! :)
@frankieboyle: A couple of week’s ago I knew nothing about the Olympics, now I can’t wait for next year’s.
