Britain’s Sport and Cultural Secretary Jeremy Hunt had an embarrassing moment during a pre-Olympic gathering with 300 children on board the HMS Belfast to ring in the London Games. The bell ringing ceremony was devised by artist Martin Creed as part of a program of cultural events celebrating arts alongside sports. While being interviewed Hunt was asked if there would be any hitches during the Games, to which he responded, "Well I can't say there won't be hitches because this really is one of the biggest things you can do. 26 major sports international sports tournaments all at the same time, around 100 heads of states coming in. There are huge amounts to get right. There are always one or two teething problems. But I'm very confident that we're ready." He was then asked to ring his bell for the camera and it almost immediately flew off and hit a nearby publicist. There were no injuries. less
