Get Inspired: How Rio Olympics inspires British children & pets
Team GB's impressive performance in Rio has captured the imagination of children here at home. We've been asking people to share their inspirational Olympic moments using #GetInspired.
Lots of proud parents have been tweeting pictures of their inspired kids:
Rio has inspired these six year old twins to take up fencing. They've also given Tae Kwon Do a try says their Dad, Des McCabe.
Five-year-old Hattie was so taken with Max Whitlock's gold medal wins that she wrote him a letter saying she would "start gymnastics because of you".
"We have been avidly watching all then Olympics and Hattie was amazed by the gymnastics. She took a shine to Max and when he won the floor gold medal the house went Max mad. The pommel horse doubled the excitement," Hattie's dad, Stuart, told the BBC.
"Since then she has slept with a flag as her duvet and been wearing her own gold medals around the house. Today she just said she wanted to draw a picture and send it to Max and we decided to write a message on the back.
"She has been truly inspired by all of team GB's success as have we all and Max is clearly her favourite. After that weekend she has signed up for gymnastics at our local sports centre (six-month waiting list says it all)."
And look - Max even took the time to respond.
Hattie is not alone in her new found passion for Olympic sports:
Richard Given took to Twitter to thank GB hockey goal keeper Maddie Hinch for helping keep his daughter dedicated to her hockey training.
It's not just humans feeling the Rio excitement. People's pets are getting in on the act too:
