If you thought the English team had it bad for the World Cup, what with being spied on by their coach and all, wait till you hear about the French, who’ve just had a roasting from the government over their hotel being “too flashy”.

Personally I would not have chosen that hotel. I had asked football authorities to show decency. In times of crisis, you need to think about it.

The hotel in question? The Pezula Resort on the Western Cape, which bills itself as “Africa’s most luxurious resort estate”.
