Euro 2008 website: 1bn hits
Vienna - The non-qualified Brits lead the way as the official Euro 2008 website has registered one billion page hits so far, the ruling body Uefa said on Monday. Uefa said that the traffic at www.euro2008.com had risen by 250% compared to the 2004 edition in Portugal since it was launched in February - with one week of play still to come.
Some 42 million users visited the text, video and multimedia sections of the site in June alone.
Uefa said that 63% of the users came from Europe, 20% from the American continent, 14% from Asia and three per cent from other parts in the worlds.
The users are led by Britons with 15% even though neither England nor other British teams qualified for the tournament. Germany and the United States follow with eight per cent each. - Sapa-dpa

"The iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told youâ€™re a god or a total bastard. The iron will always kick you the real deal. The iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the iron to be my greatest friend it never freaks out on me, never runs, friends may come and go But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds." Henry Rollins
