Context: https://tour.golang.org/methods/9

The text on the left reads

A value of interface type can hold any value that implements those methods.

I'm not an advanced Go programmer and this is the first time I encounter this expression

any value that implements those methods

in the Tour.

Because I don't find its semantics obvious, I'm interested in knowing whether I should the first quote along the lines of

A value of interface type can hold any value whose type appears as the receiver of a method whose signature is listed in the interface type

In any case, could you please consider rephrasing the original expression so that it's clearer?

Thanks!
