I think they express emotions the way they can. Their nerves are on edge, there is a lot of adrenaline in the blood and therefore they are very expressive.

My take on it is that they simply emulate others. In the past sportsmen and women would simply raise an arm, footballers would  give a jump after scoring, but now!!!! Just like children copy others so do the modern sports people copy each other. Star players are always trying to think up some new gimmick! M'Bappi with his crossed arms is a case in point. Tennis players giving the 'clenched fist' as if they have just one a world title! Footballers grotesque face pulling, all of it is a relatively modern thing; and of course people playing sport further down the food chain copy these clowns. Even kids do it it now on the sports field; all very sad! Me, I'm too knackered at the end of an event to even smile!!!!
