True story- This could only have happened in Scotland, reports Daily Star. According to a bystander, a Scottish man asked the Olympic torch-bearer to light his cigarette!
In downtown Edinburgh, while the Olympic flame-bearers carried the torch through Scotland, Calum MacDonald thought it was time for a cigarette but could not find his lighter. As a result, he nicked a light from the Olympic flame.
The torchbearer stopped running for a second to help the guy light his cigarette and reporters rushed to capture this strange moment. I wonder what the media would have reported if Mr MacDonald was Greek!
