New Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who ensured he maximised a broadside opportunities of being London Mayor during a 2012 Olympics, is surprisingly not due to attend a Rio Games.

There are opposite reasons being given for a deficiency of Boris, whose many personal graduation exploits in London enclosed being left swinging 20ft in a atmosphere after removing stranded on a zip-wire as he distinguished Team GB’s initial bullion award won by rowers Heather Stanning and Helen Glover.

Olympic Games sources explain Johnson was penetrating to come to Brazil, generally to have a height during a BOA domicile during British House in Rio to foster trade opportunities after Brexit.

The Games have nonetheless to start though already a media have done central complaints about a awful food in a Olympic Park, for that we have to reserve for some-more than 30 mins during bustling times, while in a categorical Press Centre there is usually a tiny drinks station, that is dull of supplies many of a day, to use thousands of journalists. 

England’s uneasy column Joe Marler, who took difference to Sports Agenda complaints before final year’s Rugby World Cup, should know a miss of food and beverages is worse than a RFU’s mild offerings to reporters during Pennyhill Park. In Rio, there is usually powdered divert for a Press, not good when a IOC’s income over a stream Olympic cycle is £4.2billion.
