Today in the programme 'Lighting London' aired on Power 106FM: That Melaine Walker interview after her stunning sixth place finish in the Olympic 400m hurdles semi-final!

Psychologist, Dr Leachim Semaj weighs in.

“In psychology there is something called reaction formation where you practice the opposite emotion to convince yourself,” he says.

"You laugh to prevent yourself from crying, but one thing for sure, it will have a big impact on her," Semaj concludes.
