Running gag

The slovenly-dressed Astragal felt magnificently out of place amid the suits, when attending the announcement of the Olympic Delivery Authority's delivery partner this afternoon. (A contractor won). And due to a distinct lack of canapés, the only highlight of the afternoon was witnessing Britain's favourite ex-middle-distance running peer, Lord Coe, try and crack a gag. The conference was lagging like Steve 'coming in second' Ovett, when Coe announced he was looking forward to a 'constructive future' with the new contractors. Oh, how the suits laughed. I always preferred Steve Cram myself.
