It can never be said that Matthew Mitcham doesn’t keep his fans happy. It probably helps that Matthew is Gen-Y and a product of the social media generation but he tweets a lot of fun stuff and he is constantly updating his facebook fan page. Apparently someone asked Matthew to post a youtube video singing something while playing his ukelele. He must have mentioned the ukelele before. Now he doesn’t like to disappoint, even though I’ve never had a tweet from Matthew, this lucky person got a custom performance that has even just ended up on the prime time news here in Australia.

So, this is Matthew Mitcham singing “Single Ladies” accompanying himself on the ukelele from the London 2012 Olympic Village. How bloody cool is that? It turns out he sings pretty well. If Matthew doesn’t end up with a career in the media I’ll be pretty surprised and a bit disappointed. He’s awesome.
