The Feral Beast: Nick Serota's loofah, the luck of Lloyd Webber, Fergie's mistakes, plus Nick Robinson and sex

The groovy revamped Tate Britain opens on Tuesday, and there's an all-day party to celebrate on Saturday, with Hot Chip on the decks. What a different scene would have greeted you only a couple of years ago. One of the biggest changes is the opening of The Grand Saloon, a first-floor room overlooking the Thames. For years it has been divided into offices, one of which was the director Sir Nicholas Serota's private bathroom, complete with tub and loofah. Sadly, I gather the bath has now been thrown out with the bathwater. "I can confirm that Nick has had a bath in there," says a spokesman when I call, "but he moved offices some time ago, and it hadn't been used for a while." Sir Nicholas is chairman of the Turner Prize jury. Surely "Tate director bathing" is an installation we'd all pay to see?

Olympic Shorts: Cameroon athletes choose the land of Cameron

Athletes from all corners of the world have been delighted by the bright lights of London, but it seems Cameroon's delegation may have been enjoying it a bit too much. Its entire boxing squad – comprising five fighters – has "disappeared", along with a Cameroonian swimmer and a footballer. The country's Ministry of Sports and Physical Education confirmed that the competitors were no longer at the Athletes' Village. A reserve goalkeeper for the women's football team, Drusille Ngako, was the first to disappear. She was not one of the 18 retained after pre-Olympic training in Scotland and when her team left for Coventry for a game against New Zealand last week, she vanished. A few days later, swimmer Paul Ekane Edingue departed. The five boxers are suspected of leaving in order to stay in Europe for economic reasons.
