OLYMPIC CHUMPS; BBC pundit and Brit sprinter in nose-to-nose bust-up.
SPRINTER Darren Campbell had a furious public nose-to-nose row with track legend Michael Johnson after his Olympics exit.
Campbell, 30, last in his 200 metres semi- final, was incensed by Johnson's BBC TV criticism, casting doubt on his thigh injury.
Johnson, a Games champion at 200 and 400, had claimed: "I'm confused...no one questions his talent but this time he wasn't in shape."
Early yesterday Campbell, below left, met Johnson in an Athens nightclub and said: "I'm not happy about what you have been saying."
Johnson, 36, replied: "That is my opinion." The pair had a further bitter exchange and were then dragged apart by security staff.
