    North Korea's womens football match against Colombia is delayed as their players refuse to take to the field after their photos are incorrectly shown on the big screen beside the flag of South Korea.

    "... it looks likely that the opening ceremony on Friday will not sell out. Our Olympics correspondent says spare seats are likely to be filled by troops or children, but a decision will be taken on the day of the ceremony. Games organisers Locog said there were still tickets available for the event, priced at ...


    ... £2,012 and £1,600 each."

    :eek:

    To give that some perspective, £2K = c.330 hours @ minimum wage.

    Tim, you know I don't follow sports. Speaking of which, don't forget the Hungary GP this weekend, It's the last race for a month, for Europe's summer break.

    Yes, the McLaren's are on form but once again it's rain. Nobody managed to do long stint testing on the dry rubber so it's going to be interesting for quali.

    But, I return this thread to its originally intended purpose. :eek:
