The inset pictures above show the closing few metres of the men's 800m final at the 2006 European Championships in Gothenburg. Sam surged through late on to grab the bronze medal in a time of 1: 46.64, just pipping Latvia's Dmitrijs Milkevics (purple vest and shorts). The Dutchman Bram Som (orange & black) won the gold medal and Luxembourg's David Fiegen (red & blue) the silver.

The main photo shows Ellis watching the replay shortly after the race.
