David Cameron and Stephen Fry have reportedly met in the back room of a London pub to discuss the Prime Minister's decision not to endorse a boycott of the Winter Olympics in Sochi over Russia's treatment of gay people.

The Mail on Sunday quoted "well-placed sources" who said the politician and actor had a "very pleasant discussion" at The Grapes pub in London's East End on Monday evening.

The reported summit came days after the pair publicly exchanged their differing views on Twitter, triggered by Mr Fry calling for the snub.
