Belgians? Who needs them?! Not content with being just across the road from England and speaking something that sounds like A-Ha’s aged grandparents choking on a goldfish, they have to go and come between Simon Le Bon and True Glory. Simon steered his muchdented dinghy Drum over the finish line in the latest leg of the Around The World Yacht Race after 30 days at sea and would have finished first, only those unnecesary Belgians just tipped him to the post! Still, Simon said he was pretty pleased—before running for the hills with Yasmin, whom he hadn’t seen since flying back home a month ago to do a Duran Duran video—and reckons he might make the top three overall.
