Well he's been in Phuket less than 24 hours and already he's been out and about. Got a text earlier to say he'd been out for a beer. Area is a bit seedy and he'd had many offers of a massage ! Perhaps he'd gone out in his cycling gear and they were offering him a sports massage! He'll be glad of one of those massages when he's been on the bike a few weeks!
However he did say that hotel will store the bike boxes for his return so that's an added bonus.
I text him the cycling and football news. He'll be happy with Hoy's gold and with the Stoke result.
