Princess Anne on 'media' pressure of preparing for Olympics

The Princess Royal says she feels sorry for athletes preparing for London 2012.

Speaking ahead of the official handover of the Olympic torch in Athens, Princess Anne - who competed in the 1976 games in Montreal and is president of the British Olympic Association - said she would "hate to be competing in the Games now" because of the increased media spotlight.
