    Reaching the finish line in Rio's Games

    Oped, Roger Crutchley, Published on 21/08/2016

    » Because of the 10-hour time difference, it's been quite gruelling following that sporting event down in the land where "coffee beans grow by the billions" -- I still can't get that song out of my head.

For a start, the suspect's wife was allegedly wearing some of the more attractive stolen bangles _ not perhaps the smartest idea after a major robbery. Even Inspector Clouseau might have suspected something was up.
