Clive Owen and Stephen Fry sign up for Olympics festival

Owen will interview Rwanda’s first ever Olympic mountain biker, Adrien Niyonshuti, as part of Playing The Games, a two-week event taking place in the capital during the summer sporting spectacular.

Funnyman Fry, an Olympic Ambassador, will question American track and field gold medallist Edwin Moses, and Ethiopian long-distance runner Haile Gebrselassie will also take to the stage to chat with filmmaker Stephen Daldry.

The event kicks off at The Criterion Theatre in the British capital’s West End on 26 July (12) – a day before the Olympics Opening Ceremony.
