Olympics are over, but Matthew Mitcham is still singing – this time from Rome

Diver does mash-up of Rome Wasn't Built in a Day and Roam using a ukulele and a Segway

Olympics are over, but Matthew Mitcham is still singing – this time from Rome
27 August 2012

Openly gay diver Matthew Mitcham is clearly not letting his failure to repeat as Olympic champion get him down.

The 2008 Olympic champion in the 10 meter platform has left the London Games behind him and taken Italy by storm with his unique brand of musicianship.

Alternately playing the ukulele from a hotel window in Rome and riding a Segway around the city, Mitcham performs a glorious mash-up of Roam and Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day.

Add a little footage of our Roman shenanigans and ‘presto!’ you’ve got my very first iMovie!’ Mitcham writes on his YouTube page.

The Australian athlete has already charmed fans with his cover versions of Single Ladies and Family Guy Theme Song during the Olympics.
