Konnie Huq is still holding the torch

THE big list of torch bearers and route plans is out ahead of the London Olympics. If you didn’t get a ticket for the action – i.e. ALL OF YOU – then at least you can stand by the roadside and see the 2012 version of the flame. The relay will almost certainly resemble nothing like what happened the last time the torch was paraded around town, but it does remind you of the day Konnie Huq kept the fire burning on behalf of the Olympic movement. What still lives long in the memory is the tracksuited protection team circling her along the route… but also the live commentary where the BBC news channel team’s reporting seemed to descend into just saying “Konnie Huq! Konnie Huq! Konnie Huq!” over and over again.
