Hollande Gives Dave Olympic Kicking

“The problem is that there are simply too many corporate seats. It will be up to French organisers to sort out this problem if a bid for a future games is to be successful. I am not here to announce a candidacy, but we will present an extremely strong bid: we don’t talk of money, we talk of gold.

Are you going to take that, Dave?
