Competitors from Australia and the United States were on buses that took almost four hours to get from Heathrow Airport to the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, despite being able to use a newly-opened Games lane on the M4. It should take less than an hour.
The driver of the Australians’ bus admitted that he had never driven the route before and did not know how to work the vehicle’s satellite navigation.
As a result, he gave his passengers a roundabout tour of the capital, taking in Buckingham Palace and West Ham, until one Australian provided directions from a map on his mobile phone.
For some weird reason, the Brits have already made a documentary about this :-P
