    Come the weekend

    Then there are those who go a stage further. By day Lloyd Smith is a clean-cut professional, but come the weekend and he can be found covered in mud, cycling down mountains and running through barbed wire and broken glass. While some go to the gym, Smith takes part in Tough Guy, dubbed "the safest most dangerous event in the world".

    What is the meaning of 'come the weekend and he can be found covered in mud'?


    I can't understand it.

    Re: Come the weekend

    Is it a slang?
    I have not heard it.

    It's not slang, but an idiom.

    Re: Come the weekend

    Come Saturday, I'll be flying to Ibiza.
    Come the summer, you won't be able to move where I live for tourists.
    Come winter, there will no doubt be another flu epidemic.
