Asked if the Prime Minister would be watching the game and if so who with, the PMS said that the Prime Minister would almost certainly watch the game in the flat in Downing Street after the IOC event but that he was not sure who he would be watching the match with.

Asked which team the Prime Minister was supporting, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister was a Raith Rovers supporter, so like most neutrals he was looking forward to a great game.

Asked who was representing the Government in Moscow, the PMS said that it was Andy Burnham and Gerry Sutcliffe.

Asked if the Prime Minister had a view about whether or not Joey Barton should be allowed to carry on playing football after his release from prison, the PMS said that he had not heard the Prime Minister express a view on that subject and had not asked him.
