THE OPENING CEREMONY of the Winter Olympics takes places tomorrow.

The Sochi games have been mired in controversy, in the wake of Russia’s introduction of harsh new legislation surrounding the issue of homosexuality.

A recent US poll conducted by YouGov found that 11 per cent of Americans plan to boycott TV coverage of the event on the basis of Vladimir Putin’s policies.
