Just wow, learnt to ski on a plastic slope at Pendle near Burnley and yesterday in a world cup slalom in Italy he was 27th after the first run. He had the fastest run in the second run and moved up to 4th spot and only a fraction of a second off a podium place. Absolutely incredible and it goes to show that as a country we can occasionally punch well above our weight and produce a stunning result.

There's even an article on the BBC website about the achievement.

Great to see him come second in a parallel world cup slalom in Oslo yesterday. Surely it's only a question of time before he wins a world cup race.
