walk in the park


ATHLETICS: Fancy watching the 100m final at next year’s Olympics? Well tickets are on offer for a cut-price £27,000. That’s £2,700 a second.

That’s the cheapest it’ll cost to make sure you’re there, after more than a million people missed out on an allocation during the first round lottery.

The only way eager punters can now secure a ticket to the final is by purchasing a corporate hospitality package.

And the minimum order for these bookings is for ten people – meaning a group would have to stump up £270,000 for the privilege of watching Usain Bolt take a stroll in the park for 10 seconds.
