STV’s MacKay chosen to carry Olympic torch

STV presenter, John MacKay, has been chosen to carry the Olympic torch.

He is one of hundreds who have been awarded the chance to carry the flame – as part of a relay – across Scotland in June, ahead of the Olympic Games taking place in London.

Says the Scottish Daily Express, MacKay will join the relay at Clydebank. He is quoted as saying: “Being asked to be a torchbearer is one of those things you just cannot say no to. It is a great honour.”
