It is perhaps no surprise that Japanese ski jumper Noriaki Kasai’s legendary status spans the globe considering he believes he has been airborne enough to circumnavigate the entire planet on his skis.

In Poland he has a rap song written in his honour, in Finland a punk band recorded a track about their hero and, while he did not threaten the medals in Pyeongchang on a bitterly cold Saturday night, the adoration from the South Korean spectators at Alpensia Ski Jumping Centre was abundant.

WTF?

The final had been scheduled to start at 1000 local time (0100 GMT) but has been delayed for at least 75 minutes.

Qualification for the event was canceled on Sunday due to the wind, with all of 26 the competitors progressing straight into the final, which will consist of two runs.

The best score over the two runs counts as their final mark.
