London Mayor Boris Johnson has been speaking about the Olympic athletes who got lost on a bus this morning after arriving at Heathrow. He told a press conference: "Clearly they would have had even more of an opportunity to see even more of the city than they might otherwise have done."
Two-time world 400 metres hurdles champion Kerron Clement told his Twitter follows he had got a less than favourable first impression of London this morning as the bus taking him to the Olympic Village struggled to find its destination.
The American, among hundreds of athletes from across the world arriving in the capital this morning ahead of the Games, claimed the bus had been lost for four hours.
