Ross quits 2012 Olympic job

David Ross has sensationally resigned from all his roles in the London 2012 Olympic Games.

In a select committee meeting today, 2012 Olympics minister Tess Jowell said that Ross had emailed both her and London Moyor Boris Johnson, resigning from his Olympic posts.

The founder of the Carphone Warehouse unexpectedly quit his post at the high street mobile phone giant yesterday, following allegations that he broke stock market rules by using company shares as collaterol against personal loans.

Ross was the Mayor's choice to sit on LOCOG (London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games).

His remit was to keep an eye on 2012 Olympic Games finances, and spotted the problems with the financing of the Atheletes' Village in the summer.
