Another large piece with pictures in today's Daily Post. My children say the pic of me makes me look bonkers. Oh well, it's hard to improve on nature; and the camera never lies Very Happy

The underlying story will make good reading for sponsors and potential sponsors. The internet usage figures cited are those I gave them last week - before I had seen the authoritative data. In fact the latest data is:

1.73 million hits daily on our website
10.6 million hits over the first six days
766,000 individuals logged on to watch games live on Saturday

I find these figures astonishing. Can they be trusted? Does anyone here have the professional background to validate them?

766,000 was the number of requests to the live games web site and isn't really a reflection on the number of individuals I am afraid

There isn't really a method to give accurate numbers, sorry

Thanks for this. You should know of course; you host the live games.

Do you by any chance have a breakdown by user request/country of origin. I'm keen to know what our 'global reach' might be?

Outstandingly helpful. Thanks alot Very Happy . Over 50 countries here, maybe nearer 60 or more if one makes assumptions about the 20% 'unresolved addresses'. The sponsors are aleady jumping up and down with delight; they'll faint with happiness when I wave this data at them Razz
