Pinsent's Olympic flame lighter hint

Sir Matthew Pinsent believes that we could be in for a surprise when it comes to who will light the Olympic cauldron on Friday.

The four-times Olympic gold medallist believes the flame could be lit by someone who is not a sporting icon, and does not rule out the possibility that a "fancy mechanism" could be used to light the flame, similar to the archer at Barcelona '92.
