Boris Johnson - My Fake Diary
Wednesday, 25 July 2012
I'm set to recite an Olympic ode in ancient Greek that I commissioned for London 2012.
I studied classics at Oxford University, I'll read the poem in both ancient Greek and English at a gala for the International Olympic Committee.
I asked Oxford academic Armand D'Angour to compose the ode - and gave him some tips on what to put in it.
It includes references to athletes, including sprinter Usain Bolt.
Ken Livingstone wouldn't have been able to do this!
