Brit beats Usain Bolt...to Guardian front page

Guardian reader Nick Wall from Merseyside takes issue with the paper (in a letter published today) for running a picture of British heptathalon gold medal winner Jessica Ennis on the front page rather than the Jamaican world record busting 100m sprinter Usain Bolt.
Wall writes: "He's run half a second faster than the legendary Jesse Owens. He's taken an unbelievable 0.11 of a second off his own 100m world record. So what does Usain Bolt have to do to get his picture on the front page (17 August) instead of the latest plucky British medal winner? Grow wings and fly?"
