Sports Reception

The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) advised journalists that the Prime Minister would be hosting a sports reception in Downing Street this evening to celebrate grassroots and young talent as the future of sport and to reaffirm the Government’s commitment to the 2012 Olympics bid. The guest list would include Sir Roger Bannister, Lord Coe, Steve Cram, Andrew Flintoff, Steve Harmison and Sven Goran Eriksson. Asked if the purpose of tonight’s reception was to underline the Prime Minister’s support for the bid in the light of the stories at the weekend, the PMOS pointed out that the reception had been arranged some time ago and was therefore not a response to the weekend reports. The Prime Minister remained very closely involved in the thinking around the bid and in promoting it. That would become even more obvious over time.
