London 2012: Spelling error in torchbearer's Olympic tattoo

A woman who got a new tattoo to celebrate her role in the Olympic torch relay was shocked to discover it had been spelt incorrectly.

Jerri Peterson, from Atlanta, US, carried the torch through Derby on 30 June after being nominated by the hotel chain she worked for as a thank you for her years of charity work.

Before coming to England, she decided to get a tattoo to mark the occasion, and hours later spotted it featured the mis-spelling "Oylmpic".
