Tag-Heuer have announced news that has devastated the Athletics World Championships. The infamous time-keeping company have declared that their devices have been affected by the 2003 bug, a slightly older brother of the Millenium Bug. The bug has apparently caused all recorded-times to be out by about 0.0000012 seconds.

"We're desparately sorry for this," a World Athletics guy told us. "But we're going to have to take back all the medals we've given out and start from scratch. Actually, we're considering blaming the athletes themselves so that everything is back to equity."

The Championships are set to be re-scheduled for sometime later this year when British Athletes might actually win something.
