Spectator suffers judo justice

LORD Sebastian Coe has described a spectator who allegedly threw a bottle onto the track at the start of the 100m men's final as getting "poetic justice" when he was then smacked by a judo champion.

Locog chairman Lord Coe said: "I'm not suggesting vigilantism but it was actually poetic justice that they happened to be sitting next to a judo player."

He added: "Throwing a bottle on to the field of play is unacceptable, it's not just unacceptable at an Olympic Games but at any sporting event and anybody who does that will be removed.

"There is zero tolerance for anything like that."

Holland's world judo champion Edith Bosch swung into action after seeing the man lob the bottle just seconds before the race started.
