'Who is this guy?' Team GB sprinter Adam Gemili in photo mix-up

By Simon Rice

Britain's world junior 100metre champion Adam Gemili has an identity crisis on his hands.

The 18-year-old, who has emerged as Britain's fastest man on the track this season, posting a time of 10.05 seconds in Spain earlier this season, last night posted a picture of his accreditation for the Games on Twitter - and the picture on his card was not of the former Chelsea youth player.

He wrote: "My Olympic accreditation to get into the games, who even is this guy?!?!?"

Former Olympic 400 metres bronze medallist Katharine Merry replied to Gemili, saying: "Oh dear!Doesn't even look like u!"

Despite the mix-up, there's no doubt Gemili will be allowed access to the Olympic Stadium where he will begin his 100metre heats on Saturday morning.
