Olympic mascots commissioned to tour schools inspiring children to be more active have been recalled because the actors inside them can barely move.Oh the irony. The report goes onto say:
Mandeville, the Paralympic mascot, had trouble even waving an arm...Far be it for me to comment.
P.S. Needless to say this how the BBC website reported the relevant story in their newspaper review:
The Telegraph reports the recall of 2012 Olympic mascot costumes after the wearers struggled to move.
The mascots, meant to tour schools and inspire children to be active, "had trouble even moving an arm".
Update: I found a similar Telegraph online report here, which has completely different text to the paper edition.
