London

At 12.49pm today I was sitting in my car, listening to the radio, as IOC president Jacques Rogge made the announcement.

To say I was surprised is one hell of an understatement. I’ve spent the afternoon shaking my head in disbelief.

Like losing on penalties to the Germans, it was inevitable that Paris would get the Olympics. London was destined to be runner-up, plucky losers, etc.

But not this time. God, I hope we don’t cock it up.
