Blog: Olly WehringCoca-Cola to the (Football) Rescue

Olly Wehring | 24 June 2010

All the talk in the UK yesterday (23 June) morning revolved around how people were going to get to watch England's crunch World Cup match against Slovenia in the afternoon.

A vital 90 minutes of football taking place during the working day – how on earth could one wangle this?

Thanks, then, must go to Coca-Cola GB for inviting me to watch the game with them at the South African High Commission in London.

It's still work, thank you very much.
