Hello, good afternoon and welcome to the second leg of the Olympic final of the men’s Hide-and-Seek here in the heart of Britain’s London. We’ll be starting in just a couple of moments from now, and there you can see the two competitors Francisco Huron the Paraguayan, who in this leg is the seeker and there’s the man he’ll be looking for … our own Don Roberts from Hinckley in Leicestershire who, his trainer tells me, is at the height of his self-secreting form. And now in the first leg, which ended on Wednesday, Don succeeded in finding the Paraguayan in the new world record time of 11 years, 2 months, 26 days, 9 hours, 3 minutes, 27.4 seconds, in a sweetshop in Kilmarnock. And now they’re under starter’s orders.

Hello again, and welcome to Madagascar, where Francisco Huron is seeking Don Roberts. And I’ve just been told that he has been told that he has been unofficially described as ‘cold’. Ah, wait a minute. I’ve just been told that Huron has requested a plane ticket for Budapest! So he’s definitely getting warmer. So we’ll be back again in just a few years.

Presenter
Really beginning to hot up now.

Commentator
So here we are on the very last day of this fantastic final. Huron now has less than twelve hours left to find British ace Don Roberts. Early this morning he finished combing the outskirts of Lisbon and now he seems to have staked everything on one final desperate seek here in the Tagus valley. But Roberts is over fifteen hundred miles away, and it’s beginning to look all over, bar the shouting. The sands of time are running out for this delving dago, this savior of seek, perspicacious Paraguayan. He’s still desperately cold and it’s beginning to look like another gold for Britain.
