I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

Wilf McGuinness: ‘I thought Munich was the end, that United were finished’
The 82-year-old former Manchester United player and coach talks about the air disaster, Sir Matt Busby and playing for £20 a week

Wilf McGuinness is 82 but his face lights up with vivid memories of the man who had such an impact on his life. “Matt Busby was a god,” McGuinness says simply as he looks up with an expression of gratitude and awe and remembers the football manager who turned Manchester United into one of the world’s greatest clubs. “We used to look up at him when we were growing up. We thought: ‘There he is. That’s the boss.’ That’s what we called him. Boss. He was a wonderful man.”

McGuinness was one of the original Busby Babes, a team of youthful brilliance which was decimated by the Munich disaster of 1958. He was injured and so missed being on the plane which took the lives of many of his best friends and teammates, while scarring those who survived. McGuinness was part of the second wave of Babes with whom Busby created a new team that would eventually become the first English club to win the European Cup in 1968. Another bad injury had ended his career long before then but Busby respected him so much that he persuaded McGuinness to become a coach at Old Trafford.

Two reported dead as Venice flooded by highest tide in 50 years

High waters peaked at 1.87 metres as the flood alarm sounded across the Italian city of canals

The mayor of Venice is poised to declare a state of emergency after the city was hit by the highest tide in more than 50 years, with another surge expected to cause further widespread flooding and destruction on Wednesday.

Flooding in the lagoon city reached its second-highest level ever in the wake of the aqua alta, or high waters, which reached 1.87 metres late on Tuesday night amid heavy rain, just short of the record 1.94 metres (78 in) recorded in 1966.

UK inflation hits three-year low; London house prices fall again – business live

Consumer prices index inflation falls to 1.5%, in a boost to households, thanks to lower energy bills

Earlier:

Here’s Jamie Durham, economist at PwC, on today’s house price data:

“Today’s house price data from the ONS show that UK house prices increased by 1.3% in the year to September 2019, unchanged from August. The average UK house price in September was £234,000.

“However, the divide between London and the rest of the country continues. Prices in the capital continued to weigh on national house price growth and fell by 0.4% year-on-year.

London was the region with the lowest annual growth, decreasing by 0.4%, followed by the East of England which decreased by 0.2% over the year https://t.co/nKLIpncwbF pic.twitter.com/LDoCBz9Byn
