Snow has been transported in from elsewhere in an attempt to ready the area for the Games.

Blatter backs Terry

FIFA president Sepp Blatter gives his take on the sacking of John Terry following allegations of the defender’s affair with a team-mates girlfriend.

“Listen, this is a special approach in the Anglo-Saxon countries,” he said. “If this had happened in let’s say Latin countries then I think he would have been applauded.”
