Louis Tomlinson has been itching to get to the London Olympics and it seems that today he finally got his chance.
The One Direction singer has managed to get his hands on some tickets for one of the prestigious sporting events and insiders told Unreality TV that he took his girlfriend Eleanor Calder along to watch from the sidelines.
It is claimed that Tomlinson got tickets for the men’s 100m final at the track, which takes place this evening.
Niall Horan will be green with envy, as he has been tweeting all day about how desperate he is to go along to the Olympics. The 1D singer wanted to support fellow Mullingar man John Joe Nevin in his boxing match tonight.
The hunk tweeted:
‘Really wana go watch @johnJoeNevin tonight! Cant get tickets anywhere’
He later added:
‘Just been talkin t @johnJoeNevin , he’s ready! Lets do it! #MedalforNevin’
‘Ohh buzzin about the fight tonight, cmon @johnJoeNevin , ur doin the country and little ole mgar very proud #proudirishman’
‘Never wanted tickets for somethin more in my life than i do now!’
Nevin, is an amateur boxer who won the Irish national boxing title and qualified for the 2008 Summer Olympics at the age of 18. Four years later he qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics.
This evening he takes on Mexico’s Oscar Valdez Fierro in the Men’s Bantam (56kg) quarterfinals.
It seems that one Direction have gone sports crazy like the rest of us and Liam Payne revealed that he has been glued to the TV also, writing:
‘Team GB are doing amazinnggg in the olympics!’
Liam has been to a few games of Beach Volleyball over the last two weeks, as his girlfriend Danielle Peazer has been dancing between the matches.
Zayn Malik is also caught up in the excitement and added:
‘Afternoon every1, watching Olympic canoeing, pretty cool 🙂 x’
