"People were stunned when he came fourth in his opening final," Thorpe writes on the BBC News website. "They can see he is human now and that makes him all the greater. He deserved his gold-medal finale
on Saturday. I doubt we will ever see the likes of Phelps again, considering how strong swimming has become on a global stage."
