Where to watch the Olympics in Singapore

 

It might have been a big year for sports fans already but it’s about to get bigger! The London 2012 Olympics is knocking on our doorstep (or our TV screens, at least). While the time difference means some major events will be shown in the dead of the night (4x100m relay swimming finals at 3.30am, anyone?), we’ve found 9 venues that are open until late so you don’t have to miss out on the action. Best of all, some come with special Olympics menus and drinks deals!
