The Race of the Greats on Social Media

London 2012 has been dubbed the "social media games" with many people taking to their profile pages to voice comments of support and opinions about this highly viewed worldwide event. We have already seen many athletes stand on the podium, however, who takes the gold for the most social media interest?

This fantastic infographic ranks athletes around the world, and their various sports based on social media comments from the public.

Of course the most successful Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps, is trending as the athlete with the most social buzz. However, our biggest surprise is sensational diver Tom Daley who has beaten Usain Bolt and Ryan Lochte to bag the silver position, and has his female fans to thank for being the driving force of his social media success.
