    I definitely think London deserved it over Paris, the French crowds in the French Open in the tennis for example are just a disgrace - players about to serve and you get a 1 minute mexican wave followed by them all applauding themselves, or the way they boo players all game.

    I am happy to put myself forward as CricketWeb's official reporter at the Games (what? There's no cricket? What difference does that make?)

    Jacques Chirac.

    I hear he likes the food.

    Something strange happened a little over half an hour ago - as though 58 million people cried out as if in triumph - only to have the word 'magnifique' suddenly change to 'merde'. You could describe it as a 'disturbance of the farce'.

    Such a shame. I was wishing for Chirac's sake that the vote difference could have come down to 1 - and that being the Finnish judge changing his mind at the last minute after yesterday's faux-pas over food.
