Olympic Closing Ceremony: Queen Red…Bumbling Boris To Drop The Flag!
Bookies William Hill have trimmed the price of Boris Johnson dropping the flag as he hands it over to the IOC president from 16/1 to 12/1 as punters lump on. Hills have also seen money for the Queen to be wearing a red hat, which is now a 12/1 shot from 18/1.
"Boris likes acting the buffoon and punters have latched onto the fact that he could make a mistake on the biggest of stages. But the good news is we have not seen any money for Boris to Zip-Wire into the stadium!" said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
