A similarly hardcore football fan here...but the Olympics will far eclipse the Euros this year. Although I think the Euros will be a great tournament this year with England and ROI involved (always feel that tournaments are better with home nations involved) and a number of countries that you could argue could win the trophy - the Olympics will be an outstanding showcase of everything that is Great about Britain. Sport, music, arts, construction and most importantly the public will be shown to a global audience and I'm certain that the world will love what we have to produce.
50 days and counting!
