CNN's Business Traveller show to air Olympic Special

Are athletes the ultimate Road Warriors? This month, ‘CNN Business Traveller’ was in London, a city in the throes of the Olympics, playing host to athletes and spectators from all over the world.

As London prepared to receive the world’s athletes and their supporters, the programme heard from staff at Heathrow airport, London’s mayor Boris Johnson, the fans, and from the athletes themselves. The programme also learnt how the city’s hotels braced themselves for their guests, Eurostar tore chairs out of its carriages to make way for Paralympians and their wheelchairs, and London taxi drivers installed beds in their vehicles in efforts to offer a room for the night.

Meanwhile, host Richard Quest seeks guidance from the experts on how to stay in shape on the road, sampling the ‘best of British’ with a daring foray into British Military Fitness sessions, and showcasing a specially devised ten-minute morning hotel room routine – useful for those trips where the time and inclination to get to the gym escape us. Finally, the man considered the world’s most travelled athlete, Gary Player, shares a thing or two with Ayesha Durgahee about his own tips for life as a road warrior.
