It's hard not get to get emotionally involved when it comes to the Olympics, especially with such an overwhelming legion of support from British fans around the country, and it's fair to say when Mo Farah won his 10,000 metres, or when Jess Ennis won her Gold you just wanted to give them a hug but some BBC journalists seem to be overstepping the mark.
Viewers have complained over the 'hands on' approach adopted by the journalists, in particular Phil Jones who is the athletics trackside reporter, with many criticising his willingness to man handle his interviewers in either celebration or condolence
Taking to the BBC websites and official Twitter pages, viewers have been leaving comments such as: "Have you noticed how Phil Jones insists on touching any athlete unfortunate enough to be snared by him for interview?"
Another wrote: "When did BBC reporters get the go-ahead to start touching athletes? I’ll let this boat dude off but the athletics fella is a bit touchy-feely."
One Twitter follower appeased: "Please tell Phil Jones to stop touching athletes when he interviews them. It’s inappropriate". While another proclaimed: "Why are some of the BBC Olympic OB presenters so touchy-feely when they interview medal winners, they are practically groping them."
The wave of comments surrounding reporters and their over zealous affection comes after John Inverdale started crying as he spoke to a couple of British rowers who sadly missed out on a gold medal.
