News, information and stories about the Olympic Games.

The Telegraph reports that the residents living in the vicinity of the Royal Albert Hall are up in arms that the venue is re-applying for a sporting licence (in time for the Olympics), that will include wrestling and boxing.

The new license will also pave the way for the Hall to be used as a high-profile venue at the London Olympics in 2012.

The fact that in the past boxing matches etc were held at the Albert Hall does not cut any ice with the residents (who don't go to such "pleb" events).

Yasmin Doctor, one of the residents leading opposition from the Albert Hall Mansions block, said:

"You learn to put up with a certain amount of disruption living here, but the type of people attending boxing and wrestling matches aren't going to be your average Prom goer...."

Says it all doesn't it?
