FIFA officials will have to sleep on Boris’s floor
Mayor of London Boris Johnson has hit back at FIFA officials following their rejection of England’s World Cup bid by withdrawing the offer of a free stay at the Dorchester Hotel during the 2012 Olympics. Instead, he has pledged to put the 22 man committee up at his three-bedroomed Chelsea residence.
‘I may have mentioned the Dorchester, but no promise was ever made,’ said Johnson. ‘We will break new ground and host the delegation at a new up and coming venue - my pad.’
Johnson has reassured the media that he is already ordering a sofa bed that will ‘sleep two, three at a push’, and has trialled an inflatable mattress in the spare bedroom. However, some insiders have criticised proposals for president Sepp Blatter to share Johnson’s bed while vice-president Jack Warner kips in the bath.
