This week marked the point at which we are exactly two years away from the holding of the Olympic Games in London in 2012.
Now I confess that, atypically for a man, I’m not very interested in sport. But I’m delighted that London will be hosting the Games in 2012 because I think it will be great for the city in which I’ve lived and worked for 40 years.
I’d like to play my small part in making the event a success and, since I’m now technically retired, I could make the time. I love meeting people from other countries and cultures and would like to connect with some of the people travelling to London for the Games.
So I’ve signed up to be a London Ambassador.
