And given the high possibility of somebody catching something from somebody else, or from a filthy dispenser/fountain, I would say you have no chance of that ever happening.

Thames Water started installing water fountains at stations in 2019 (designed to refill water bottles rather than the traditional water fountain design), but had to switch them off because of the pandemic. They haven't been taken out though, so one day I'm sure they'll be switched on again.

If you've got time on the platform to fill your water bottle, your challenge has gone wrong somewhere ;-)
