Did you manage to get through the hordes outside the hotel?
They’d gone by the time I got here. I ducked it a little bit and ran in. I was cutting it a bit fine this morning.
You’ve had to get used to that wherever you go now, presumably?
Yeah, it’s something you have to get used to. It’s one of those things that’s, what’s the word… it’s an adjustment. It is an adjustment. Loads of people have said it, to a boring extent, but there’s just no… they don’t teach you how to deal with any of that.
Is it ever difficult for you?
Abnormal or strange, yeah. Difficult? Not yet, no. It’s not difficult-difficult. There are days when you feel a bit self-conscious and you’d prefer to be just a little more anonymous, but it comes with a lot of good stuff as well so you can’t really complain about the bad, and especially not to journalists!
