I didn't see it but, by all accounts, the Paris presentation was very disappointing and dull. They played it very safe.

London, by contrast, was generally considered to have delivered the best presentation, leaving many IOC members with a tear in their eye.

New York also gave a good account of themselves.

Moscow seems well out of it and Madrid didn't do enough.

Paris will still probably get the vote but London have made a hell of a bid and, if there were enough members still to be swayed before today's presentations in Singapore, then London could possibly pip Paris at the post.

I said that, according to reports, "Madrid didn't do enough", and the third round vote seems to bear that out.

Was there a Spanish presentation for another city that none of us were aware of?
