In the most astonishing development yet in the 'Gary Glitter Saga', it has been announced that the filthy, disgusting paedophile will take part in Sunday's Olympic Marathon in Beijing.
Glitter, real name Shitter, hasn't stopped running since his release from prison in Vietnam last Tuesday, and says he has been gearing himself up for a long running battle.
He's thought to have a devilish sprint finish.
Convicted of various offences involving 'sex' and 'children', Glitter spent 27 months in jail in Vietnam. He spent his time penning new songs, and it's thought it was this that persuaded the authorities to release him early and 'get rid'.
Although the ex-popstar has never run a marathon before, the IOC have said they are prepared to let him run, hoping he might have a Heart Attack and perish in a gutter for the whole world to see.
