It's just a few days now until the London Olympics start and it seems everyone's in training. A London double-decker bus has been reborn as a mechanical sculpture of an athlete doing push-ups. The workout is accompanied by the sounds of a groaning voice. But not everything is going so smoothly. Our Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew is there. Eddie, some Aussie Olympic fans have had trouble getting their Games tickets. Yes, they have. This controversy is to do with the ticketing Cosport, an overseas agency. Doesn't matter for the people with tickets to do with the ticketing agency

in the United Kingdom but it does matter for Australians and Americans. There is an argument who is responsible. But the bottom line, people who bought tickets haven't received them. They weren't mailed out before they left for the United Kingdom, they were told they had to come to a ticket in Paddington to collect them. When they got them, they discovered if they bought in a group, sometimes the people were separated through a large stadium. Our chef de mission, Nick Green said it is unacceptable and are trying to sort it out and guaranteeing Australians will have their tickets, definitely, the ones for the tickets for the Opening Ceremony will be sorted Friday. Nick Green still hasn't decided who will carry the flag for the Opening Ceremony but the number of options is being whittled down? It has, he has decided he just hasn't told us. The official announcement is tomorrow night when everyone will find out who the flag-bearer is. One person has with drawn, Drew Ginn, the rower. He was a front runner, the triple gold medalest but he said he doesn't believe he deserves it and wants it to go to Anna Meares or Stuart O'Grady. Lee has never attended an Opening Ceremony because he wants to focus on competition. Let's hope Nick Green Decided on him. Yes, you cannot withdraw. And we are praising the London games already? Yes, um, Nick might get in a bit of strife for this one. Maybe even a little bit unAustralian to say someone else's games could possibly be better than ours back in 2000 but it is what Nick Green had to say today, listen. to say today, listen.I London has learned a lot from Sydney, they took a lot from Sydney, they took some from Beijing and Barcelona in '92. They will put it together and make a great games. I personally believe this wim be the best games, ever. What! this wim be the best games, ever. What!? If the weather does stay like this it will be the best games. I don't know, that will cause a few headlines back home. We can't have that title taken from us. It hasn't started. The best Games last decade but not everch Has there been talk of sanctions on Nick Green? This is the bloke putting Nick D'Arcy and Kendrick monk back on the plane so they can't enjoy the second week after swimming finishes. Let's stick Nick back on the plane if that is the case!

Zoe Arnold admits she initially assumed allegations against her husband were true. Writing in the 'Women's Weekly', she also concedes many Australians see Thomson as a philanderer, who's loose with his morals and money. But the former journalist says her husband has always denied doing anything wrong and she believes him. The now Independent MP is accused of misusing funds when he was a union boss, including paying for prostitutes with a union credit card. We'll take a closer look at this later in Sunrise. Here's a strange one making news. The Canadians are apparently spying on us. A naval officer has been accused of passing secrets to the Russians and compromising Australian intelligence information. Of all the countries, you'd never suspect the Canadians, would you? Sneaky. What are they finding out? What sort of deep What sort of deep secrets do you think we could have? They are watching the AIS very closely. Seeing how we do it. And the footy scores. How us girls tipping. And the sexy age for women. scores. How us girls win the Apparently, it's 28, which is Pippa Middleton's age. Get out! Is it really? But women's confidence doesn't peak until 32. 41% of us would like to have longer, slimmer legs. But three-quarters of us would not change our body shape if we had the chance. Have your say. That's good, isn't it? I love that. Have your say. Is 28 the sexy age? 31 for confidence? Trying to think back? Pretty happy? I like that. A bloke who doesn't lack any confidence is London mayor Boris Johnson. Someone with a bit of time on their hands has dug up clips of Boris from his days as a TV host and edited them together for a "Welcome to London" video. It was the beginning of the dark ages, a kind of cringe-making clash of civilisations, the people of the earth sail under to the mouth of Thames, a place of mud, and earth sail under to the mouth of the illiteracy and embarrassing diseases, London built this superdome in which their took place entertainment which seemed shocking and debraved. The same experience as English public schools. The Games began with piles of whitened bones and horse's heads and nailed to

Passengers are being encouraged to check with their airlines. Just what is in store for the opening ceremony of the London Games? It's one of the UK's most closely guarded secrets and Edwina Bartholomew is on the case. Edwina, is anyone giving anything away? Hopefully not giving anything away, nor is anyone else? Well, Mel, we do know that 220 of our athletes will march, roughly half the team. But what they'll see, well, it is still up for speculation. There is actually a national save the surprise campaign so no-one gives away what is in the Opening Ceremony. But with the dress rehearsal last night and another one last night, st it is is bound some secrets will get out. There is some speculation Mohammed Ali will play some role, possibly he will lead a parade of sporting greats. We know about the village green they will have on the floor of the stadium there, a combination of animals, I can give you the official number of ten ducks and chickens. Not sure how they reached that number. We have seen above the stadium the last couple of nights a helicopter and blimp, there is word, deignial Craig, James Bond will abseil from the -- Daniel Craig will abseil Craig, James Bond will abseil down down. The fireworks didn't go off until 1am so our athletes will have a chance to bow out earlier if they get tired of standing on their feet and they ruin their chance. Save themselves but James Bond, wow! And James Treloar, the Aussie sprinter being remembered after passing away at the age of 84. You spoke to him recently? Yes, it was sad to wake up to this news. He was in fine form when I interviewed him recently. He was the first to reach the metres finals of any Olympics, at was the first to reach the 100 the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. He had fond memories of a very different city of London, it was just after the war, it was still recovering, many of the athletes were still on rations. Here is a little of what he had to say. Well, everybody was so joyous into the glory of the Games. and throwing themselves They just wanted to show the world because of the war, they hadn't been finished "I'm going to rise again.". you know, His son issued a statement yesterday saying his Dad die just like he ran, very quickly. So it is nice to hear for him and his wife. More of that interview on the weekend. We also spoke to another Olympian, Bruce Burke, a swimmer from that time. They had wonderful memories to share. I can't wait, and just quickly, David Beckham has been surprising people near the Olympics Park? Tell us about this? Yes, Becks can Bob my photo any time. He appeared in a photo booth with sixty of his fans at the westfield at Stratfield, the complex near the Games. One boy even cried when he turned up. The pictures are incredible. Also, Becks has confirmed he will play some role in the ceremony. He is adhering to the save-the-surprise rules. The people's faces, you would think it wasn't him for a moment. Fantastic.

Australia's most trusted brands. 'Reader's Digest' has revealed They're mostly the big names trolley week after week. which we put in the supermarket on the list But there are a few surprises and with who's been left off. Digest' editor Sue Carney. I'm join now by 'Australian Reader's at the top 10. Good morning. Sue, let's take a look What are our most trusted brands? We've got interesting brand in the top 10 this year. A broad range. But five of the top 10 are first aid brands. So brands. So Dettol came in at No.1, ban aides and - Band-Aids and chocolate, Cadbury, brand that make us feel safe. Is it a reflection of our times, for a lot of people, life is so fast, life is so certain so we go back to trusted brands? We are certainly seeing here the brands that are doing well are the brands we know are reliable. We can turn to. They will deliver on what they promise. Brands that will make us feel better. So that reassurance and the brands we know are good value and will and will deliver on their promise. Some of the brands that have been left off, kraft, Dick Smith, Toyota. We should establish Dick Smith would be the business brand because he is individually in the top list of trusted ones? Yes, those brands did very well, they took out the cat gores, Toyota is the most trusted car. Dick Smith did well in the iconic brands. We have seen brands that are well known, we have very familiar with. And that there is no surprises. I think that is what has come through in frust. We want something there is no surprises. Is it linked to big advertising budgets? Certainly all the brands we see in the top 10 we are all very familiar with. We are reminded frequently they are there in the supermarkets but they are names we have known for a long time. It is not nes serl a lot of money that people are pouring in that are the most trusted, they are the brands we use. Also, they don't make mistakes either? Exactly, they are brands, reliability that pushes people up on the trust stakes. Fascinating isn't it? Good to see you, Sue. Always is good list. News is coming up. Kevin Rudd as Labor leader.

South Sydney's top-4 hopes will go on the line tonight when Greg Inglis fronts the NRL Judiciary. Inglis is fighting to have a dangerous contact ban cut from five matches to two. The fear of suspension has forced fellow Rabbitoh Sam Burgess to shelve the shoulder charge. I'm just not doing as many shoulder charges anymore. If you accidentally clip someone on the jaw you get, might get a few weeks so you gotta be careful. Brisbane's Ben Te'o is contesting the grading of his careless high-tackle charge while Penrith's Travis Burns will have his 12-game ban for an intentional high tackle heard next week. The future of Collingwood forward Travis Cloke remains up in the air after the Magpies opted to put contract talks on hold until the end of the AFL season. The Pies believe the constant speculation over Cloke's future has the potential to hamper their premiership quest. At the AFL Tribunal last night, Demons forward Jeremy Howe escaped with a reprimand for wiping blood on the shorts of an opponent.

Rumours have resurfaced this morning Kevin Rudd as Labor leader about a secret plan to reinstate continues to flatline. if the party's primary vote Labor figures are discussing It's been revealed more senior back on top. ways to put the former PM if her unpopularity continues. Ms Gillard can't stay in charge she has no plans to step down But Julia Gillard says he won't contest. and Kevin Rudd insists correspondent Mark Riley Seven News chief political has the story. happen? How soon could a leadership change Good morning.

Despite what they say? Good morning, Mel, well I Mel, well I think generally accepted within Labour if 2 Kevin Rudd it will need to be within the next couple of months to rebuild the Labor stocks to lead them into an election. If is more likely if political circumstances dictate, a shock and awe circumstance, announce a whole suite of policy changes to swamp the expected criticism about return of Kevin Rudd and what people have said about him in the past and lead the news agenda into an election before the end of the year. But if it is not Kevin But if it is not Kevin Rudd in the But if it is not

next couple of months, if it happens next year it will have to be someone else. Why? People are asking why is Labour talking about this? We ran graphic in the news last night Labour talking about this? We ran a showing Labor's vote, and it the heart line of a political party, it goes up and down and shows the heartbeat of a party. For 15 months, Labor's primary vote has been flat lining at around 30% lining at around 30%. It is political death. It has never happened in the history of news pole for that to be sustained. As a senior party member said, there is no animosity, but a realist who support Julia Gillard said I don't think people understand we are not looking at electoral defeat we are looking at an unprecedented political Armageddon, Queensland style, New South Wales style wipeout. There is a story in South Wales paper rebuilding Labor, wipeout. There is a story in the New the party functionary is talking how to build the party and stop the outbreaks in what led to this. It won't be a problem. The won't be a political party if it happens. There will be hardy enough people for a dinner party and it is why Labor is

focusing on it. Julia Gillard is a leader and can't look like she is wavering. Kevin Rudd is quiet since February. Are the voices who raise this strong enough? Who are they? Can they make the change they want? It is interesting. They are not the faceless men, the leaders. I have spoken to many people over the last couple of faceless men, the notable faction

weeks, senior Labour people, junior, parliamentry leaders, people outside the party, from the left, the right and the centre faction. They are facing the reality of their position. This isn't a kind of personal approach against Julia Gillard for any particular reason. In fact, a lot of the people don't particularly like Kevin Rudd but they like the Labour Party and the common story I get, a party is bigger than any individual and it is about saving the party. If there is a third contender, probably now is the time trooput up their hands. Thank you. An extra 1,200 troops have been deployed in London since World War II. It comes as the contractor responsible for Olympic security has again failed to meet its commitments. Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew is in London. Eddy, this is a bit of worry two days out? Yes, Kochie, security has dominated the headlines here. It is Yes, Kochie, security has really mostly because of the short falls of this private firm, G 4 S. They would a multi million contract to deliver 13,000 Olympics security They will They will end up with around 7,000. 13,000 Olympics security guards. But authorities say they are not worried. They have brought in extra troops and say they are prepared for natural hazards, protests, organised crime ask the most dangerous, terrorism mism. -- and the most dangerous, terrorism. This was the first sign London's security had stepped up. The arrival of HMAS 'Ocean' down the Thames. 13,000 troops were to be deployed in the Olympic city - that's now closer to 20,000. After the private security firm G4S failed to provide their full quota of Olympic security guards. On trarrism our planning assumption all the way through is the would be severe. Currently it is one under that, it is substantial but we all the way through is the level

still have the plans in place and plan to police at the threat level of severe. Terror tore apart the 1972 Olympics when 11 members of the Israeli team were kidnapped and killed. In Atlanta in '96, a bomb went off. Two died. And then there were the London attacks the day after the city was awarded the Games. The threat now for here is 'significant' - the second highest level. We still intend to police of the threat level 'severe'. The Westfield shopping centre near the Olympic precinct is now manned by men with machine guns. Another 12,000 police back up armed forces. And then there are the six surface-to-air missiles dotted around London capable of shooting down a plane within a 5 kilometre radius. And this is just the security we can see. Underneath the Olympic stadium panic rooms have been built to protect the 50,000 VIPS expected and 10,000 athletes. The US is flying over CIA operatives to work with Scotland Yard and Interpol - most of their work we'll never know about. Sunrise correspondent Edwina with that report. Tony Loughran is a security expert and he joins me now from London. He looks after corporate visitors. He joins me now from London. Good to see you mate. Are you worried about this? Why on earth would the United Kingdom outsource security to a private firm rather than leave it with the army and police at the first place some The army and police are pretty stretched. They have a lot of commitments locally and international. But to go to the firm was a big step. God knows what happens. Looking at Athens and China, the ran smoothly. The security company stepped up to the mark and were able to pull in the resources so it is an incredible question. How worried are you about the security set up? From our perspective, one of our security people has been appointed head of security of a major venue at the Games. Was only appointed two weeks ago. Two weeks ago! Yes, I have been talking to a couple of guys this morning actually. On the streets and that. And pretty well connected they said there has been a massive kind of problem with G4S. It even that. And pretty well connected and

goes as far as the data base with the people's flames on there crashed -- people's names on there and there was no backup to get the names from different places mism How. How big a threat is there to the Olympic Games in London? There is always a threat. I keep saying it all the time. An absolutely prestigious event, " absolutely prestigious event, "A target for an an tistgle group. All the media is here. So it is big threat, if someone can try and something, they will have a go. There is no two ways about it. Thank threat, if someone can try and do

you, it is a concern. Melbourne police are reported to have identified suspects in three of the city's unsolved gangland killings and they're vowing to track them down. Sunrise correspondent Nick Etchells joins us. Nick, which cases do police think they can crack? Well, look, Nat, there are three reportedly close to solving. The first one is Mario Condello, the lawyer turned gangster, he was shot as he was walking into his Brighton home, the gunman shot him and ran away home, the gunman shot him and ran away before the door closed and the second, Graham Kinniburgh and the third is Willy Thompson. A known drug dealer, also shot by a lone gunman, this time outside a martial arts centre in Chadstone. That one, the authorities believe Carl Williams may have been behind it. But they say they may be close to identifying the shooter and get away men. How close are they to making any actual arrests do you think? Well, obviously the police are playing their cards close to their chest on this one. They are old murders. The TV shows have gone to air and the books have been written but the whole time the cases have been open. It appears it may be a case of the police shaking the tree to see who pokes their head out it is a shot across the bow of the to see who pokes their head out but criminals to let them know they are not yet home free. Thank you for the update, here is Mel. Lara Bingle is back promoting tourism but not for the country that made her famous. So, where the bloody hell are you? Bingle's packed away her bikini to take part in a new campaign promoting New Zealand as a destination for Aussies. I would much prefer to live this life than my crazy, crazy life in Sydney. You're really kind of living the dream here. Everything is truly magnificent. It's so beautiful. Bingle says she won't forget that Tourism Australia helped get her where she is today. Marketing expert Matthew Bywater joins us. Good morning. Is it a bit of a slap in the face for Aussie tourism? No, I think it is a very clever and typically cheeky New Zealander way of using other talent and getting greater exposure for it. But Tourism Australia used Lara Bingle, the ad wasn't that great, they got the air play wasn't that great, they got the air play because of the word 'Bloody'. Will the campaign Will the campaign successful? It has Will the campaign successful? It Will the campaign successful? It has the potential to be hugely successful. They are telling a great story. What we will see on TV will be a 30-second clip. But on YouTube, there is a five minute reality TV show version of the clip itself. It is a great story of getting the message across, particular the line, we took the sceptics and proved them wrong. So she doesn't say Mr All bloody' -- doesn't say bloody in there? No. Now for the shot of the morning. Some sports fans near London's Olympic Park got a bit of a surprise when they popped into a photo booth. They were stunned when former England soccer captain David Beckham joined them. Alright? Do you mind if I jump in on this one? Yeah. (cries) You right? My goodness. Oh! My goodness. Oh!! My goodness. Oh!!! My goodness. Look at you! Oh! You're beautiful. How are you? Oh! Amazing! My God! Right? Loving it, well done, guys. Isn't that lovely. I love the mum's reaction, the jaw drops. Good on him.

Look, there is the potential for a lovely day. Fog is still lingering around Sydney. It is going to be cloudy and a top of 20. Not that I know anything about weather but after fog it always turns out nice. If if you are going to the airport or meeting anybody, let's go to the flight board at Sydney airport. Basically,

Basically, delays are building up after 8:00. Sydney is a major hub so the knock-on effect to every substantial airport will be substantial. No Canberra today but Taree is looking good. International flights are generally being diverted to Brisbane. Check with the airport beforeia head out. Let's get the latest news with Nat.

Passengers are facing delays and diversions this morning as heavy fog shrouds Sydney. Seven News reporter Sally Bowrey joins me live. Sally, where are international flights into Sydney being diverted to? Can you update us? At this stage we have seen 11 international flights diverted. At this stage most are going to Brisbane or Melbourne, most are from the US. On the domestic side, there is no side, there is no problem with flights taking off. It is those trying to land. A lot are being diverted. We may see delays on the domestic side up to 90 minutes this morning. The best thing with passengers is check with the airlines if they are affected. On the roads, surprisingly no major delays, the same with the rails. Some ferry services have been told to slow down, mainly on to slow down, mainly on the Parramatta river as a precaution. Visibility is low in suburbs, 200 metres at Bankstown and 600 metres at the airport. It will burn off as the sun comes out but we have got a window where it will start to affect things at the airport. We will see a back log as they try to clear things. Yes, the flow-on effect will be big, I would say, thank you for the update.

Victoria police say they're closing in on the gunmen behind three fatal shootings during Melbourne's gangland war. Underworld figures Mario Condello, Graham Kinniburgh and Willy Thompson were murdered between 2003 and 2004. Detectives say they know who the shooters are and they're coming for them. They're also chasing getaway drivers and weapons dealers. A young man has been bashed and stabbed at a home in Melbourne.

He was taken to Royal Melbourne Hospital last night with a knife wound to the groin. Paramedics were especially concerned about his blood loss. The victim was wheeled in with a police escort. The wife of exiled Labor MP Craig Thomson has broken her silence in a magazine, saying she initially assumed the allegations against her husband were true. But the former journalist says he has always denied doing anything wrong and she believes him. The now-Independent MP is accused of misusing funds when he was a union boss. Charges have been laid against one of Rupert Murdoch's closest confidants over the UK's phone-hacking scandal. Former 'News of the World' editor Rebekah Brooks will face court as will fellow former editor Andy Coulson. A total of eight people were charged last night over the scandal.

Brisbane's new Airport Link is open to traffic today. It's Australia's longest road tunnel running 6.7km. Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper joins me now. Good morning, Michelle.

Howe was ordered to front the AFL Tribunal last night for smearing blood on the shorts of Port Adelaide's Tom Jonas. The 22-year-old apologised for his actions and was shown leniency.

When the incident occurred it was in the heat of the moment. If it happened all again I would have taken it back, I would, and I knew I did the wrong thing.
