Olympics: Drogba mobbed by fans

SWINDON, United Kingdom (AFP) – Chelsea’s Champions League hero Didier Drogba  was given a rapturous welcome as he carried the Olympic flame on Wednesday, the day after announcing he was leaving the club.


Drogba was mobbed by thousands of people lining the route as he jogged through Swindon town centre in western England with his torch on the fifth day of the relay ahead of the 2012 London Olympics.

Despite being far from Chelsea’s west London base, many of the crowd were wearing the club’s shirts.

The 34-year-old Ivory Coast striker, who scored the equaliser and then the winning penalty in Saturday’s dramatic Champions League final win over Bayern Munich, said Tuesday he was leaving the club and is reported to be in talks with Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua.
He has admitted he may have been persuaded to stay at Chelsea if they had not won the Champions League for the first time in their history, but with his goal achieved it is time to move on.

Speaking to BBC radio, he said: “Winning the game was the key. Not me scoring the penalty.
“Winning the game was the turning point: that’s why I have decided to say goodbye.
“We made the story together and I want people to remember that. This is the best time to move on.

“Yes, there’s a chance that if the result was different, maybe I would be here.
“We were talking for many weeks, but the turning point was based on the fact I won everything I could and scored in most of the finals we have played, trying to make a difference.
“I hope everyone will understand. Everything I did was for the fans and I hope they understand.”
Most of the torchbearers on the 10-week, 8,000-mile (12,875-kilometre) relay around Britain, are people who have done charity work or been nominated, but celebrities and Olympians past and present are also taking part.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
