007 Drops In

The original 007, aka Sir Sean Connery and his wife Lady Micheline Roquebrune Connery, dropped in on ATHENS 2004 President Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki yesterday.

It is reported that the meeting was at the request of Sir Sean, who claims to be something of an aficionado on the subject of the Olympic preparations.

During a brief press conference Sir Sean noted that Mrs Angelopoulos had a very impressive personality, and that the presentation about the preparations for the Olympics 2004 was also impressive.

By all accounts they had a nice conversation.

Sir Sean hopes to be able to attend the Olympics at some stage. However, that is dependent on his film schedule.

He noted that Greece was different to other countries, a somewhat peculiar comment I feel, but that the Games will be successful.
