Australian sports minister set to lose Olympic bet

The Australian sports minister, Kate Lundy, will row a length of Eton Dorney wearing a Team GB shirt if she loses a bet with her British counterpart.

Hugh Robertson, minister for sport and the Olympics, is likely to win the bet with Ms Lundy over whose country would triumph with more Olympic medals.

Speaking to BBC News, the Australian minister congratulated Team GB on their achievements, and added that the Australian team were very happy with their ''swag'' of silver medals.
