i'm not sure whether "popular win by him" means that the crowd is happy "him" won or just that "him" is a popular athlete (hence, popular win doesn't have anything to do with winning something, except for the appreciation of the crowd).
can someone please clarify that for me?:)
Re: popular win
It could really be either, though if the commentator was talking at the the time of the event, then it's more likely that the crowd had wanted him to win and not his opponent.
