    Andy Rice is a founding partner of Yellowwood Future Architects, a marketing strategy consultancy. In his other lives, he is the southern hemisphere's only supporter of Cambridge United Football Club, and was once upon a time the South African National Spoofing Champion. He has played football at Wembley and cricket at Lord's within the same weekend, but troubled the scorer on neither occasion. Things could only go up from here.

Sunday Mirror journalist Simon Wright, he who allegedly orchestrated the intrusion of a fan into the British soccer team's dressing room, appeared briefly in the Cape Town special World Cup court on Wednesday morning. Senior prosecutor Billy Downer announced that the trial would proceed on Saturday and Sunday. All parties involved will be hoping it is concluded before the start of the World Cup final.
