Olympic organizers deny signing Paul McCartney for opening ceremony
OLYMPIC organizers have denied signing Sir Paul McCartney to front the 2012 opening ceremony but welcomed the former Beatle’s support.Press reports had indicated the star, 69, had done a deal after he said he was “up for it”.But a spokesman for the Olympic Games Organizing Committee today told the ECHO: “It is great that someone of Sir Paul’s stature is interested but it is still very early days.“We are still a year away from opening ceremony.“Discussions are taking place with lots of high-profile people but it is too early to confirm anyone.”
