In a dramatic turnaround over who hosts which tournament, Sepp Blatter, FIFA dictator spoke with Lord Coe, Baron of the Olympics, this weekend to discuss re-scheduling the Olympics and upcoming 2022 World Cup.
Blatter said Qatar is too hot in Summer so if we move the World Cup to 2012 in London we can save money on building air conditioned stadiums.
Its just a matter of changing a "1" for a "2" in all the marketing materials, plus we can then have the Olympics which are mainly indoors anyway (apart from the running stuff) in Qatar in the Summer.
Blatter denied any collusion with sun tan lotion manufacturer, Ambi Solari, recently added as an Olympics sponsor and said this was pure coincidence.
Paula Radcliffe, marathon runner, said she would not have a problem running 26 miles in Qatar in temperatures as high as 50C, as long as there were sufficient bathrooms provided along the route.
David Beckham 45, said moving the World Cup to London in 2012 would mean he still stands a chance of playing for England again.
